I have one that’s kind of funny and totally awkward…

I grew up in a crazy holiday loving family. My mom taught pre-school so she was crafty and every holiday was full done and fantastic.  My sister (MOH) and I are the same exact way as adults. Making costumes for halloween, doing themed Christmas trees, I even send handmade V-day cards out! So when my sister and I were discussing the shower she suggested Halloween which I think is fantastic! She found invitations that are tastefully which themed and is throwing an appetizer and martini party with the martini’s in halloween colors with themed names. She purchased the most amazing cake which is a giant cupcake with a huge friendly looking spider on it. My sis sent the invites out last week, well guess what? Forgot that one side of the FI’s fam is Jehovah Witness’ and they don’t celebrate holidays. What a way to alienate 25% of the guests!

I would feel like it was putting a burden on them too.  I dont even want to ask friends or family help with anything.  (I hope they offer though).  But maybe she wants to feel included by helping.  Your FMIL sounds sweet.

@mwitter80 gosh how embarrassing but you meant well.  I hope they understood it was an accident.  But that story is really funny as long as no one was offended.  All the work you put into the party too.

I dont have an embarrassing story yet bc my wedding planning is just beginning, 9 months to go, but I probably will eventually.
