- Wedding: August 2012
It’s probably really silly, and I shouldn’t really even be thinking about it.
I am not having a bridal shower, or hens night etc. I have 2 friends in my town, none of the others could afford to fly down for one night (think several hundred dollars, plus accom, finding childcare etc)
My mother in law wants to do a dinner in her town, but thats 3hrs away and my 2 friends from town couldn’t make it over there due to childcare issues and work commitments when I could due to me being only able to get there certain days a week. Plus everyone over there will be, for example grandma in law, mother in law, aunty in law, and a few of her family friends, plus my mother if she was able to make it.
I know it sounds like a lot of excuses, but god even trying to get a catch up with my bridesmaid is difficult at the moment we are both so busy and we live a 2min drive away from eachother.
None of my close friends are coming to the wedding bar the 2 who live in town (basically a family only wedding).
I see all these posts about bridal showers etc and think man I wish I was having one. But at the same time, I’m not a huge people person, that was a big reason why a family only wedding is happening, even with the 70 odd people we made it just an afternoon tea so we wouldn’t have to deal with everyone.
It seems so stupid, now I write it all down. But in my head, it’s going around and aroudn.
