So my fiance just got back from his bachelor party. It was just him and 3 of his groomsmen going out and spending the day together paintballing and then eating out. His best man woke up this morning, drove all the way down here (he lives like 2 hours away) to do this for him. He paid for the whole thing, and it wasn’t extravagent or anything, but still he dished out the cash.
The thing is, my bridesmaids did nothing for me. When I talked about it with them, they asked ME when I was having it. I told them that my mom was willing to help plan things out, for them just to call her. They never did. So I got nothing. I just can’t help but feel upset and hurt that my fiance has such terrific friends that made sure he had a great day and I didn’t get anything. And it’s not like I asked for anything fancy either. I just thought we could all get together and hang out and have a little bridal lingerie party instead of the typical bachelorette party. But I got nothing. =(

@dayl20: Did you have a bridal shower? If so, perhaps that was your bridesmaids’ way of honoring you?

Aww, I’m sorry. I know it sucks when you feel like your friends don’t care. Your wedding is just a week away, so you should focus on that and be happy you’re marrying a great guy. 🙂

@Brielle: This is what I was thinking too.
Sorry OP. I’m not sure what to say. You can’t force your friends to throw you a party. I wouldn’t dwell on it too much. It’ll just make you feel worse.

I’m sorry you feel this way, it totally sucks.
Its so close to your wedding though, focus on the positives! Like, you are going to be married in a week!!

I had a bridal shower that my mother threw for me because my bridesmaids wouldn’t plan anything. They came and helped decorate but that was it. They didn’t pay for it, plan for it, or anything. I actually did about half the planning for it myself.
And thanks, I know that a party is not necessary. And it really didn’t bother me much until today when my fiance went on his.

I’m sorry 🙁 That sucks a lot. I am kind of in the same boat. Fi’s friends want to take him to Vegas for a bachelor party. I don’t have any super close friends. I have friends, but I doubt we’ll be doing anything since they aren’t invited to our wedding. I’m okay with it though because I hate being the center of attention.

Aw, I’m sorry – that’s lame! I’d feel pretty upset as well. I agree with PP that just try to think about the upcoming wedding and how you’re marrying someone that will always make you feel special. Anytime I’m let down, I try to think that, my BEST FRIEND Mr Fiance would never do that to me 🙂

I had a really nice bachelorette party a month ago and my Fiance at his right now and I’m still kind jealous. Lol. I’m sorry you didn’t get your own, that stinks but live it up at your party next weekend and put it behind you. Date twins!!! Congrats and have an amazing day!!!!
Edit: I also called my frieNd and told her when I could do it and asked if she would help me put a little something together. I doubt I would have gotten one had I not done that.

I don’t think my bridesmaids are doing anything for me either, so I’m planning it myself.

Awwww I am sorry they suck. It is possible they are broke and don’t want to insult you with anything cheap. Why don’t you round them up together and do something, it won’t be the same, but at least you can have one.
