Did you throw your own shower? Just curious.

 

Anyway, it’s rude that they RSVP’d yes and then didn’t show. You can’t demote or “fire” anyone. Maybe something came up. You never know unless you ask them, calmly and rationally and like an adult what happened. Take them out to coffee one at a time and just say, “Oh hey, I missed you at my shower!” Maybe they’ll give you their reason. Whatever it is, I’m sure they have one.

@lindseyl06:  I would certainly be upset, but are they required to attend those events? I guess I don’t really understand the issue since showers aren’t so big in my circle of friends. What would having them there have added to your shower?

To be honest, I would be really upset. It makes it seem like they don’t care about you, and they clearly are not organized. What will happen when it comes to the wedding? What if they forget that too?

Your shower was incredibly early. I don’t think my bridesmaids really thought much about my wedding in general, except for 2 weeks before, and then 5 months out when we bought the dresses. People have lives that they get busy with – it happens. Two of my bridesmaids didn’t come to the shower but they were there at the wedding, and, to be honest, my shower didn’t even cross my mind by the time the wedding rolled around.
