- Wedding: August 2012
So I realize this is going to make sound selfish but I need somewhere to vent so here go.
I am getting married in August, I asked 4 girls to be my bridesmaids and decided against picking a maid of honor. The friend I would pick lives in another state so I knew she would be limited as to what she could do and I knew she would not be able to plan/attend a bridal shower or anything like that. So I decided to just have bridesmaids.
Well my mom has asked me about bridal shower several times ( am I having one?) I told her I would like one but wasn’t sure if my bridesmaids wanted to or could afford to. She said that if one of them planned it she would pay for it and have it at her house. Well one of my bridesmaids who lives about an hour has been helping as much as she can (she offered to make the cupcakes for the shower) but the other 2 who live close have shown almost no interest. They do when I hang out with them but as soon as we are done I don’t hear from them for like a month or so. I am starting to get worried because I really just don’t know what to do. Do I just say I am not going to have one? Do I tell my mom no one wants to plan it and see what she wants to do? We are a little more than four months away from the date my friend set so maybe they just aren’t thinking about it right now? I feel selfish but I am really worried because I have already told a ton of people the date and starting to think I should have waited.
I just really want one. I know that might make me sound bad but I am only getting married once and I love the idea of having all my ladies together to celebrate! Any advice?
