So invites for my shower went out a month ago. The shower is this sunday. I went shopping yesterday for my outfit, and found it yay!! Anyways… I saw my Maid/Matron of Honor when I was out shopping with another one of my BM’s She works at a store we were shopping in. I hadnt talked to her in a few days, so I asked so are you coming on Sun? Knowing that she was becaue the RSVP said regrets only by whatever date, and she didnt send her regrets. Unfortunately to my surprise she said no she had to work open to close that day!! Like really? I am not a slave driver bride at all. I dont ask for people to come over and do projects, etc. Im not one of those people that thinks I get a whole special year instead of one day, but you couldnt request off work for my bridal shower? I just feel like she should be there being my Maid/Matron of Honor and all… What do you guys think? Im not mad at her or anything, but I would like her to be there obviously..

I would definitely be a little po’d about that. As Maid/Matron of Honor you definitely should be at the shower unless there are extenuating circumstances which work really isn’t considering she had advance notice and should have requested it off.

If she’s working, I think you should cut her some slack. It isn’t like she is ditching you to go to a concert or something. Working retail is super tough- requesting time off on the weekends is difficult, and she may not be able to afford to request the day off. I would be a little annoyed that she didn’t rsvp, but the “regrets only” rsvp method kinda sets you up for some confusion since you can’t see if people just were too lazy to not respond.

I think that’s kind of lame. My Maid/Matron of Honor is planning my shower, but even if she wasn’t, I’d be really bummed if she couldn’t be there! I mean, I’d understand seeing as how she lives 5 hours away, but I’d be bummed.
Your Maid/Matron of Honor had plenty of notice in order to take a day off to attend your shower.
