Nothing major.. just sort of bummed here. When my mom booked my shower, I suggested she shouldn’t go with July 7, her original day. I didn’t press the subject though, and we’re already receiving more “nos” than “yeses”.
Totally bummed me out. 🙁

@OnceUponATime: aww, I understand. My mom wanted to do July 7th too and I told her no way so she did the 14th. Why did your mom do the 7th anyway? It’s a bad weekend bc of the 4th and for us in government we have a 4 day weekend.

@gelaine22: I don’t know why she picked it honestly. There’s nothing significant about that day. It’s two full months before my shower to boot!

We’re getting labor day weekend for ours so I am not expecting much, but that was the best time for us to travel to my home state. Hope you get more yeses!

That is such a bummer, I’m sorry! One thing I always tried to remind myself of was to focus on who WAS able to attend (whether it was a shower or my wedding) rather than who couldn’t. Even if the turnout is smaller than you expected, you’ll still have a wonderful time and will be showered in love!

I’m sorry, but people suck. God forbid they sacrifice ONE Fourth of July holiday to attend something that you’ll have only once!! Grr!!

@mrs_pudding_pop: Bummer. That makes sense. That was part of our reasoning too! A lot of family members were planning to come in for Saturday cookouts, so they were thrilled to have the shower the day after!
@Gemstone: Way to be positive! I can steal that strategy 🙂
@Rubbs: I can understand that some people that have major plans, but it is such a bummer when they say, “Oh, I can’t. My mom is coming over for dinner at 5” … the shower ends at 4 o.O
