In mid-December, Mandy asked when she could start working on the invitations. But the woman was busy with her final exams, so she couldn’t do them. “2 weeks later, she asked again, after my last final, but I was busy with Xmas family stuff and planning a New Year’s trip. She never gave me a deadline so I figured it just wasn’t very urgent yet,” she said.

It wasn’t until mid-January, after the New Year’s trip, that she contacted Mandy about the invitations. But Mandy had already started without telling her. “Turns out, she wanted it done before New Year’s and was waiting for me to ask her about it, but by the time I did, she was already pissed with me for taking so long and stressed about getting it done,” she said.

The woman got upset and felt like Mandy went behind her back and didn’t communicate properly. She told Mandy she should have just told her it was urgent since there wasn’t a clear deadline.

To complicate things, Mandy asked two girls, Sam and Pam, whom she openly disliked, to be bridesmaids. This was incredibly hurtful to the woman, and she didn’t want to go to Mandy’s wedding anymore. But she also didn’t want to seem petty for not attending to support her friend.
