As the pair have been friends since they were little kids, she was determined to make her bestie’s ‘big day unforgettable’.
The poster goes on to share how to she went above and beyond in the planning.
She says: ‘I spent nearly $700 (£570) on her Bachelorette party, buying cute outfits for everyone and renting a party bus with all you can drink drinks.
‘The other girls pitched in but I’m the most finicially stable so the majority fell on me. I helped plan the wedding of her dreams, right down to contacting the vendors and setting dates when she was too busy.
‘I made the save the date and invitation cards. What I’m trying to say is that I did a lot for her.’
However, two weeks before the wedding, the best friend asked for her to step down as maid of honour, explaining she wanted her future sister-in-law to take the role instead.
The poster adds: ‘I was pissed, and we got into a huge argument over this where I, admittedly, said things I wasn’t proud of.’
Since then, the woman says she’s received texts from her friends, the best friend’s family, the groom’s family, and even the sister-in-law telling her she’s a ‘drama queen’ who needs to get over herself – and that the day isn’t about her.
Turning to Reddit, the heartbroken friend says she doesn’t even want to attend anymore and asks if she was in the wrong for reacting in this way.
But most people are on her side.
One person said: ‘She changed her mind about you being her MOH after you’ve done so much for her and spent so much money, so you get to change your mind about attending the wedding. Simple as that.’
While another added: ‘Girl, you are so not the A-hole here. You poured your heart and cash into making your bestie’s wedding epic, and then she pulls a switcheroo on you? That’s majorly messed up. Of course, you’re hurt and upset.’
However, some did point out that she didn’t need to spend that much on her friend.
Another individual replied: ‘I’ve been a bridesmaid in five weddings since 2020. I have to ask: Why would you do this?
‘Every bridal party I have been a part of, the bride is in the loop just enough in case there are any issues and then the MOH comes up with plans and then sends out to make sure everyone can split and afford it. You absolutely should not have been covering for other people. Kind of set up for resentment, there.’
