Well, that seems like kind of a crappy thing to do if she really did it on purpose.  I would hope that’s not the case, and it really just an accident?? 

Well, hugs anyway!

WOW! I would just continue on with your bridal shower, especially since your friends will be there and yeah maybe your family will go to the birthday party, but maybe they won’t, and if they don’t come to your shower, so be it. Have fun and eat cake and maybe have a more intimate shower, just remember to enjoy yourself, and remember this “fuck em all and feed em beans!” 🙂 Good luck to you!

Wow your cousin is so rude and manipulative and coniving. I’m sure she feels bad about not being invited to your wedding but if she wanted to do the right thing she should have talked to you about whats happening and told you how she felt not try to mess up your bridal shower. MMaybe you could have your mother talk to her mother or father talk to her father or whoever is the brother/sister combo there? But do not let her make you feel like you just want everything to be over just ignore her and go on with your plans. I’m so sorry that someone is doing this to you at such a special time. you might also want to talk to your other cousin that is getting married and ask her to ask her sister to stop since she wouldnt want someone to do that to her and she is a bride too.

How shitty of her, I’m sory! And seriously, the kid will have another birthday every year. You’re only getting married once! I know you’re family has been a little ridiculous about all this, but please tell me they’re at least on your side on this one! If not I am so so sorry.

It will really get under this girl’s skin if you come off as composed, happy and completely untouched by her shenanigans. Girls like that just like to cause a fuss, and when they see that they are ignored, they end up feeling pretty darn stupid. Enjoy your shower – people would WAY rather celebrate a big moment in your life such as this rather than go to some crazed, over-sugared birthday party anyhow! And remember, karma has its own way of finding people in their due time.

I (if i was your family) would go to your shower over her kids birthday. You will have one bridal shower her kid has a birthday every year… And alot of people blow off kids birthday partys without a reason I think your bridal shower will be fine!

(oh and btw I have 2 kids and always plan there birthdays ATLEAST a month in advance)

I am so sorry. I can only imagine how frustrated you are with everything. It will all be worth it in the end. Just go ahead with your shower, and have a great day!! Your friends will be there, dont let her ruin these moments for you!! I know at times this whole process can be frustrating, but dont let it get you to down. Pretty soon you will be married to the man of your dreams, and all this crap will be worth it. Feel better HUGS

wow – this story is insane! I thank my luck stars everyday that the drama that I’m going through is like a walk in the park in comparison to this! Remember to always take the high road, so you always come off looking better 😉
