That’s very disappointing!  I definitely think sending out invites a week prior is the reason nobody was able to attend.  Even though I know it’s difficult, try not to take it personally.  Your MOH really should have sent out invitations at least 3-4 weeks before the shower to ensure people could plan to attend.

Sucks, but hey declines should be expected when people are invited to things at the last minute. You will see your fam and friends soon enough.

sugarcube:  That sucks, a lot.  I’d be sad too…..even though its not because they don’t care, its because they had like…eight seconds to make the plan to get there….it still stings.  Sometimes, you just have to call your bestie, go out for margaritas and queso and pay the band an extra $10 to play the Pina Colada song!

sugarcube:  Sorry you’re feeling down – but I agree with PP, try not to take it personally! I think the timing of the shower probably had a lot to do with it also – in my book, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to have a wedding shower a mere 2 weeks before the wedding..  Your MOH dropped the ball, but try to shake it off – only 2 weeks until your wedding! 🙂
