- Wedding: April 2013
This isn’t a vent, but I do want to say I’m a bit worried… and I feel bad.
Background: FMIL was adament about hosting a shower for me, which was great. I accepted the offer after asking if she was sure and she was. I only asked because she lives across the country. And then she said the shower would have to be right after Christmas because she’s coming home to visit for the holiday.
We immediately began planning. She asked me what I wanted and I said I had some ideas and referred her to my Pinterest board. She emailed me some ideas she had. I emailed her back with feedback about her ideas (which I loved) and sent her a guest list with addresses to make sending out the invitations easier for her. Also, I asked her if there was anything my mom could do (because she wants to be involved) and she said she’d let me know.
Then, she sent me an email with a mock-up of the invitations (which she’s ordering online). I told her I’d like to change the wording of the invitation and gave her a suggestion (the default wording on the invite was for a wedding/lingerie shower and I thought implying anything sexual would be awkward for everyone), to add the wedding website information, and to add my registry information. Also, in the mock-up, there was no R.S.V.P. information.
I haven’t heard from her since. I’m hoping I wasn’t being too picky or offended her, but I was hoping those changes could be made quickly since the shower is 28 days away and I’m pretty sure invitations haven’t been sent out yet. (My mom even asked yesterday if the shower is still happening). FI spoke with her three days ago and she said she was about to send me another email. But that was three days ago and I haven’t received anything.
I’m just wondering if I should be worried? The guest count and menu is due on December 14th. I’m beginning to panic… /:
