- Wedding: June 2010
So I was trying not to let this bother me… but I just need to get it off my chest.
So my Maid/Matron of Honor and I sat down a couple of months ago to come up with some ideas for my bridal shower, we set a date that worked for all the BMs, and I told her, don’t worry about anything right now, but invites will have to go out in March (the shower is Apr. 25th). Well I realized last week that March has come and gone, and nothing had been done. I know my Maid/Matron of Honor has been drowning in school work – it’s essay time and exams start in a week…. no biggie, but invites have to go out asap, so we hooked up this week to confirm theme, time, etc., and I quickly typed up some invites and started handing them out today. I had e-mailed my mom and asked her if she could take over, since my Maid/Matron of Honor needs to focus on graduating. Well apparently she’s too busy with work, and told me to talk to my Grandma. Seriously?? …my own mother is too busy to help plan her daughters bridal shower. Thanks. And frankly I’m kinda pissed because after talking to my sister today, she said she contacted my Maid/Matron of Honor several times saying “if you need me to do anything, let me know”. But Maid/Matron of Honor couldn’t take 2 minutes to shoot off an e-mail that says “Sorry, I’m drowning in school work, can you take over?” And thus, I have to take control in the planning process of my own effing bridal shower. How depressing. Even Fiance asked me today if he could help, because he is upset with the way I am being treated by my own family and bridal party. I didn’t even want a bridal shower and my Maid/Matron of Honor convinced me I HAD to have one because their “so much fun!” Well I wouldn’t even be having one, if I wasn’t the one who took initiative to make sure things are being done. UGH… Anyways, sorry for the vent. At least I have you bees!
