I guess just ask the host what’s going on! I’ve never heard of a bridal brunch (other than a brunch the day after the wedding), and I think it’s particularly strange they didn’t consult you on the date if it’s held in your honour! Still, just ask what the plan is and how they want it to go and I’m sure they’ll fill you in.

@Coral2013:  I don’t know any of the ladies hosting it either



Oh wow…that’s so strange! Is it friends of your mom? Or FMIL? Church ladies(whose names you don’t fully know?)

We’re kinda doing a joint thing for our bach parties, which are doubling as a shower, I guess. But, my BFF’s are planning it, with my help. I’m local, and they’re both pretty far away.

Have you asked any family/friends if they were invited? I’m a cynical person, so I’d be highly suspicious. But, that’s just me. I’d be concerned it’s one of those “group showers” held by a woman/women at a place you’ve registered. I’ve heard of those. Or, they get your info from vendors(or websites where you’ve entered info of your own, looking for vendors), and hold group showers trying to sell you stuff.

If you don’t mind, could you update us when you learn more?

***Congrats, regardless, and welcome to the Bee 🙂

@Coral2013:  well, I’d take him then. He knows them, I’d assume. Also, I’d drag your Mom(if she’s willing), and your Moh(or another close friend). this is very strange to me, as I’ve never heard of friends of the in laws throwing showers like that. I’d also make sure your MIL hasn’t added any of them to any other shower lists, as multiple invites for the same person/couple, starts looking a little gimme-gimme.

If he doesn’t want to go, take someone else. You shouldn’t EVER be expected to go anywhere by yourself, and personally, I wouldn’t go alone either. I’m not an awkward person, but I’d feel very out of place with no one I know, especially knowing my FMIL would be hanging out with them more than with me.
