I am new to the site and getting married in about 5 weeks. So far planning and getting everything set up has been relatively simple, a few hiccups along the way. I cannot wait to get married! I am having a small bridal party: my Maid/Matron of Honor who is currently abroad but participating in everything and a bridesmaid. I also have a handful of friends helping out etc.
My bridesmaids are throwing the bachelorette: they have been asking for ideas, etc. At first I was not sure if I wanted a bachelorette party since I am not an insane party person but after getting asked by numerous friends who were eager to participate I decided to go for it!
My bridesmaid & Maid/Matron of Honor have done a great job sending out invites etc. A few friends have replied but otherwise, from what I know, they have not heard from many people. Literally no response!
I don’t really understand! Recently a friend came over to discuss our engagement photoshoot (she offered to do one for us as a preparation for the wedding which is incredibly sweet) and started asking about the bachelorette and how excited she was for it!
I casually mentionned to her that invites were sent out by email. To which she replied: I never check my email! I’m sure they will contact me and let me know what is going on!
I’m not sure what to think, I feel incredibly bad for my bridesmaids who are putting in the effort and getting no response from people. Is it this hard to answer an email? Especially coming from people who are apparently excited to attend?
I’m confused and not sure what to think of it. I don’t want them to plan a great evening and have almost noone show up.
Has anyone dealt with this type of situation before? why are people so flaky when it comes to responding?
(I’d like to also say that all these girls have readily RSVPed to the wedding and some are going out of their way to get special outfits made as we are having two different ceremonies and I didn’t even ask them to do it, they all just volunteered!)
I figured if they were so excited about the wedding, they would want to come to the bachelorette (which is in the same city, so no travelling or extra expenses involved)
I’m clueless as to what to think of all this!
Need some advice 🙁
