- Wedding: May 2013
It’s here – that first dreaded moment that you’re ready to call the whole thing off and take your man to city hall.
My mother and sister (also MOH) are planning my bridal shower. It’s nice of them to take on the task and keep my to-do list down, but I’m not seeming to get a say in any of it.
Yesterday they visited a venue where they’d like to have the shower. It seems they’re pretty set on the place already. It’s not really “me” or what I would choose (the clubhouse of a golf course…kind of old and cheesy looking) but I’m not going to complain because I am grateful that they are covering the costs.
What I am going to complain about is the date that they’re set on. It happens to be the anniversary of the death of my FI’s mother.
They essentially explained to me that, “[The place] is available on [the date]! We went ahead and put a deposit down.”
I get a knot in MY stomach when I think about the date, and you can only imagine the feeling that my FI (and all of his sisters who are part of my bridal party) is having.
What do I do?! I’ve already explained the concern to my mom and sister. They say it will “turn a sad day into a happy day” and seem to have an excuse why every other day within a two month time frame “won’t work.”
Am I being ridiculous? Do I suck it up and be grateful or put my foot down for a change?
