I know there have been alot of these posts lately….AND…..
I know my shower isn’t the most important thing in people’s lives, but it still hurts a little when I get an rsvp “no” back. I’m up to 3 “no’s” and they’ve all been my “friends.” The latest “no” was an unexpected one; I thought for sure she would be there. I don’t have many friends to begin with, so I’m going to be the loser bride-to-be that has virtually no friends at the shower. It just sucks. I’m kind of embarrassed; what is my family and FI’s family going to think about a person with no friends? 🙁
It doesn’t help that there are people that I invited that won’t even rsvp, and my mom will be stuck paying for them “just in case.” And I have a bridesmaid that is so flakey, that she’ll back out of the shower at the very last minute (she’s done it before). My other bridesmaid lives out west and won’t be there because airplane tickets are cost alot.
FI’s best friend’s wife is even going to travel the 4 hours to come to my shower that my “friends” won’t even come to.
I guess I’m just feeling sorry for myself 🙁 My family and FI’s family will be there…family is most important I guess.

I’m so sorry to hear that! You are just in your vent….and I will probably be in your position with my side of the family/and my friends for my shower…my fiance’s side is a much larger huge italian family, and more tight knit I know they will ALL be there.

@BellaDee: Thanks! I’m trying to cheer up. I’m trying to focus on the people who will be there…not the one’s who won’t.

It sucks now but just appreciate everyone who shows and you won’t even notice. Those who didn’t. It took me 3 hours after the shower to realize my favorite uncles wife didn’t even bother to come.

My shower is scheduled for the height of the summer (in late July) and the only folks my sister has heard back from thus far have been “no’s.” I’ll admit, it does sting a little when you get a no back, but it’s not going to be the end of the world. All the people saying no to mine have completely valid reasons (actually, most are the same – lots of people have weddings to go to and let’s be honest, a wedding is more important than my shower!) I know how you feel, but in the end, it won’t matter. The day you want all those folks showing is your wedding day! That’s how I make myself feel better, at least! 🙂
