Why would she want her boyfriend there? How incredibly boring for him. She can’t spend one day without him?!

I am going to a bridal shower tomorrow where the only guy there will be the groom. I don’t get it, but whatever….

Just let him come… he will be uncomfortable and she will probably feel stupid since there are no other guys there!

STRANGE! My bridal shower is tomorrow and my FI isn’t going to be there either it’s a girls thing (nor does he want to be there LOL).  Not sure why it matters to this girl there aren’t going to be any other guys there how uncomfortable would that be for him.

I think you should let him come too. Let him be super uncomfortable and bored. ๐Ÿ˜›

That is strange, one I think it’s rude to ask to bring somone who wasn’t invited, and two, why would HE want to go??

That is a first for me…

BTW you handled it nicely… and politely… you’d think she’d get the hint.

Obviously she hasn’t a clue what happens at a Bridal Shower… BF will be bored to tears !!

And ya, I so get this statement…

All I know is that throughout this wedding planning I’ve learned a lot about some people.. and well some of these people I probably won’t talk to as much after the wedding!

I was married the first time some 30+ Years ago, and sadly things haven’t changed much… some people are just “beyond dense / RUDE”.

The good news is I can tell you that after you are married life evolves, it becomes so much about the life that the two of you build, that there will indeed be people you’ll rarely ever see again… (or choose not to socialize with)… as you’ll be onto making your own life & memories, friends as a couple, etc.

Lol, I’m actually beginning to realize how LOW STRESS this my second Wedding is… no family to please (no high strung Mom)… just me and Hubby-2-B.  We are Eloping to a Destination Wedding, and as it is our second, there are no BIG expectations… we can do as we please.  There will probably be a Open House or Back-Home Reception when all is said & done, but it will be pretty casual… so no big worries in regard to a sit-down meal etc.

This time round… our Wedding will be ALL ABOUT US… our Vows said in private on the Beach, our Wedding Dinner overlooking the Ocean, and our wonderful Honeymoon.  Makes getting married such a sweet thing to look forward to… no HUGE affair, and NO DRAMA !! Amen.

How old is this chick? Has she never been to a shower before? They aren’t usually that fun for anyone but the bride being showered and even then that’s not always the case! LOL! I say let her bring him and be entertained at how bored he is! LOL!

Isn’t it weird how when you’re planning a wedding, people ask the dumbest questions?

I don’t understand it… either people really just don’t know any better or stupid questions stand out more then before.

Or do people only become rude when it comes to weddings? It really baffles me.

Anyway at first, when people asked me stupid questions I shot them down instantly but I realized its not very nice and have really focused on how to turn people down or answer their dumb questions nicely.

I also thinks its sad that I have to put EXTRA effort into not hurting someone’s feelings when they’re the ones asking rude questions…
