- Wedding: January 2013
one of my bridesmaids approached me the other day to gather her a list of friends and family i would like to have attend a bridal shower for me… I was so excited because i really wanted someone to host one for me but i feel awkward now…
to make a long story short… when fi and I started dating… i had recently took a step forward in my life and all MY old friends decided to stay where they were and eventually lost touch with eachother. Now all my current friends are friends of his… and i love them, theyre awesome people and I couldnt have better people in my life, however I feel that its just not the same, i wish i had my own friends… friends i have longterm history with…
I find myself feeling like “whats the point in having a shower when these people dont know me that well or havent known me that long…”
I’m also having a Destination Wedding and my friends and family are shelling out a lot of money to go to our wedding. I will be 100% honest that Fi and i will be regestering but not expecting any gifts as we feel that their presence on our day is the best gift ever (and i’ve told everyone this)… however my Girlfriend told me this would be a gift giving bridal shower and I feel really guilty about that… am i just being too hard on myself?
