Nobody in my bridal party is good at keeping secrets. We met up recently to discuss bach-party ideas and I know there will be few surprises (but I’ll be getting the evening I always wished for!) I’ve even purchased some of their gifts in front of them because I needed their sizes and wanted to make sure they liked them first.
Yeah, we’re kinda lame.
Even with all this surprise-killing honesty, nothing about a bridal shower has come up. My girls and my family know VERY LITTLE about what to do for the bride. None of us, including my mother, have ever been part of a wedding. I am 99% sure nobody has even thought of throwing me a bridal shower.
My girls are also broke and in school (we all are). It feels like pulling teeth to get them enthusiastic about spending a whole evening away from other obligations. I don’t really want a lush event, just maybe a potluck, some wine, and sincere smiles.
Should I casually mention the idea of a shower to a bmaid and hope it triggers something? My mother is 4 hours away, so I don’t think she could even do one. Maybe I should mention I’m shower-less to a non-bmaid I think would like to throw me one? I have an older friend who might really get into it.
I threw myself an engagement party…maybe that plus the bach-party is my allotment? I kinda just wanted something I didn’t take part in planning.
