    My own? LoL ok it wasn’t that bad. It was literally food, gifts, cake, goodbye. No games, no champagne or beverage, nobody really talked to me, and half the people sat in a different room while I opened gifts. It was super awkward. I had one lady come up and compliment me on my brand new dress. Believe me, I looked nice. I really stressed over it, haha. It was a nice gesture, but I guess it wasn’t what i pictured a bridal shower being. And I don’t appreciate being at a party and finding myself in the corner by the sodas because nobody is talking to me.

    Ok, one lady did come up to me and talk to me relentlessly about my brother who passed away last year, so I ended up in tears and being really depressed all afternoon. She simply wouldn’t let it freakin’ go!

    Ouch! Those are terrible! I am kind of worried mine is going to be just as crazy, but we’ll see. I can’t wait for the rest of my friends to get married so I can throw them a shower!

    I had the bride’s little sister tell us we were not good friends and send us a hackneyed "Bridal Party Ettiquette" website link when we refused to go over our finalized budget to accomodate her last minute addition of a caterer.  The same girl also borrowed all of her portion of the money from her mother (read: her mother paid her part).  Is she less of a good sister and friend because she couldn’t afford to pay her part?  Her logic would say so.

    So sorry to hear about the bride’s sister. Some people simply don’t understand the importance of a nice shower and just figure if people show up and eat, it is successful. Sounds like the bride appreciated all your hard work. Kuddos for being a great MOH!
