One of my BMs didn’t come.  We scheduled the entire shower around her because she said she was going to be in town on that date (The shower was 5 months before the wedding, I felt really weird about it but I wanted her there!) I guess I’m not surprised she didn’t show but it really hurt me.

I was hurt by a couple of people who didn’t show up, especially because their excuses were really lame. It’s kinda awkward now because I don’t know how to act around them. :/

I have a friend that isn’t coming, and I’m disappointed and a bit peeved over the circumstances, but I know I”m being petty so I won’t go into details. That being said I am way out of line to be upset and I don’t think you are. I’m sorry she can’t make it!

I had my shower on Saturday and of the 15 people that I invited, only my mom and two of my four siblings came (the ones I live with).  I was upset by that, a good portion RSVPd yes, but just never showed up!  I’m glad FIs family and friends all showed up, else it would’ve been really empty!

I am having 2 showers in 2 different states – one was last weekend in the state where I live and one is next month where I used to live.  My closest friend in the state where I live now, which is where the shower was last weekend, told me she can’t make it to my other one because of the distance but she wouldn’t miss the one that was local.  Come to find out, not only did she not show, she didn’t even RSVP.  I’m a litte upset about that.

One of my bridesmaids. My MOH picked a few dates and asked everyone if they were okay for their schedules.. and one bridesmaid just never said anything about the days. So right after my MOH put down a deposit for the resturant, one of my bridesmaids said she couldn’t come because she was going out of the country. It hurt a little because she could have just said so and they would have went with a different day.. but she sounds almost happy that she won’t have to go.

Yup. one of my cloest friends isn’t coming. I am a little bummed and hurt, because I have always gone out of my way to go to her events. But oh well, nothin I can do.

The friend that introduced me to my FI planned an “impromotu” long weekend/vacation to Hawaii after getting the evite for my shower.  Honestly she is not really much of a friend the past few years and get togethers are more fun without her usually so really it worked out.

I think you have a right to be disappinted and hurt, especially becasue her reason! that being said, I would let it go figuring she does not know how much it means to you that she is there. Maybe she thought you wouldn’t care if she wasn’t there?
