I will spare you all the trivial details. The end result is I learned a couple days ago I won’t be having a bridal shower. Wedding is at the end of April.
I’m legit depressed over this. It’s my only chance to have one on my life, and I’m missing out on it. Obviously not going to through myself the shower, which would be my only option.
Anyone else not have one due to ill planning by others and how did you handle it?

Oh no how disappointing for you.
You do still have time to organise one. I agree that it’s a one time thing and I’d be disappointed too.
Does anyone know that you are sad about this?

I’m sorry you’re upset about your lack of bridal shower. Your wedding is at the end of April..there is still time. Why don’t you hint to someone (MOH?) that you’d like one?

@AquaRhapsody87: If it’s really that important, why don’t you ask a family member to plan it? or you can plan it yourself.
I honestly do not want a bridal shower because I hate those games and I refuse to sit in a room full of girls…. It’s a bit too much. Why don’t you have a really nice bachelorette party and go all out instead?

Do u have bridesmaids? Mother? Aunt? Coworker? Someone you can mention the bridal shower to? do these people know you want a bridal shower? I loved mine and id hate for any other bride to miss out

Everyone knows how much I want one. Things keep coming up in their lives which puts putting on a shower on the back burner. (There’s was no way of putting that without me sounding selfish)
I hate asking my mom. She’s already done so much by paying for food, cake, my dress, and invites.

It makes me sad for you.
I would never let my friend miss out.
I hate asking too but maybe mention it in passing to your mum she might be happy to do it for you and I’m sure you will gladly help her out.

@AquaRhapsody87: You can’t schedule your life around other people’s. I say pick a date your mom and your MOH can attend… if people show, they show, if they don’t, they don’t.

An update: I confessed to my FI how upset I was about the whole shower thing. I also confessed it to my mom. FI told his mom.
Now, although slightly rushed to plan it, I’ll be having a shower at the beginning of March thanks to the moms.
I appreciate everyone’s supporting words and advice! Means a lot to me.

*raises hand* Me me me!! No bridal shower for me and the only reason I had a Bachlorette party was because I planned it myself. My SIL, God I love her, but she as a horrible MOH LOL. Glad to see that you’ll be getting your shower though 🙂
