My coworkers were gushing about the amazing bridal shower they had planned for me. This was in September. They told me it’d be the first week of October. Well, it got rescheduled for some reason but I have yet heard when it’s going to happen, just that it’s going to happen. I have let them know to tell me as soon as they have a date (I take night classes and the shower would happen after work so I’d need to plan ahead for my class) but I’ve heard nothing yet. My wedding is a month from today and I have the week before my wedding off. Am I being selfish for feeling a little diappointed that they built this shower up and now it’s obviously not happening? I didn’t ask for a shower, they went and planned it on their own and told me about it. They are all invited to my wedding also so they know when it is.

You aren’t selfish for feeling that way! Totally normal to be disappointed when something doesn’t happen that you were looking forward to. There’s really no polite way to push the issue though, so I’d try to just let it go and appreciate that they were at least thinking of you. I’m sure they had good intentions. 🙂

@dreamer1288: well you have a month left, there’s still time. I’m sure they’re going to do something considering they said they would. Save your disappointment until you actually have a reason to be disappointed.

I can see why you’d be upset. I didn’t even get a frigin’ card from my co-workers when I was getting married!

@dreamer1288: I can see being a bit on edge about the issue, but, in reality, they still have 3 weeks while you are at work.

No, I dont think so! It’s natural to be disappointed when you’re looking forward to something and then it looks like it wont happen. But there’s still 3 weeks until the wedding, maybe theyre just waiting on one small thing to fall into place then they’ll go ahead with it. I wouldnt give up hope just yet!

So sorry. I can understand why you feel that way but there’s nothing you can do about it so you might as well move on and enjoy the next month.

@dreamer1288: I can see being disappointed, especially if they told you. It would be different had they kept their mouths shut. You still have some time until the wedding and perhaps they are going smaller than they originally planned or perhpas it just didn’t work out. They still have time, but if it doesn’t work out I wouldn’t approach the subject or anything as there is no polite way to do that. Sorry this happened though.
