All I have to say is –> Embarassed

 

I’d feel the same way.

I have never heard of a post-wedding shower.  What is the point of that? “I’m a married woman now, so buy me gifts”?

@ MichiganBride2012: LOL!  You said what I was thinking.

 

Seriously, this girl seems to have some major insecurities!  I’d feel the same way in your situation.  Esp. right now – if you have as much stress as I do right now PLUS that?  You’re due some major sympathy.

wait, they played a slideshow of her wedding pictures at your bridal shower? I would have been furious.

and what the hell is a ‘post-wedding’ shower?

Sounds like someone needs an ego check. Big time.

Uh, what?  I would be completely upset about this too.  I do not think you’re being irrational at all.  Her wedding is over, it’s your turn!  And what the hell is a “post wedding shower” anyway?

Yell

It’s a shame that she’s doing this and that people are going along with it. Someone should have shut the slideshow down at your bridal shower. 🙁

Your feelings don’t seem irrational in the least.

heck, now it makes me wonder what she’ll do at your wedding! steal the mic to announce a ‘special dance for the sibling of the groom to celebrate their 2 month anniversary’?  Special cake? Their own processional song?

Do you guys share mutual friends?  If not, I’d just let her be and focus on your friends and family. Try not to let her get you down.

And what exactly is a post-wedding shower for anyways?

Well that sounds like a gift grab if I ever heard of one. Post showers work for babies since there’s actually something to show off. Post wedding showers make no sense to me. Did she not have a shower before her wedding and wants one now? The whole concept seems like a desperate cry for attention. It’s time for her to get over it and let you have your moment. She had her oppertunity.

I second everyone who wants to know what the hell a post-wedding shower is. Is this a thing now?

I’m sorry you’re having to deal with this. FWIW, in my opinion, your feelings are completely justified. She had her day. She doesn’t need to keep cramming it down people’s throats four months later!

If it’s make you feel better, if I got invited to a shower for a wedding that happened 4 months prior I wouldn’t go. And I would call it (dare I say?), tacky.
