- Wedding: November 2013
So my bridal shower was last night and it was a huge fail. And Im pretty upset. This is just a rant, I know that people are not obligated to go to these events but to say yes that they are and then to message and call that they are on their way and never come. Really?
Whole story – I was having a small shower just invited 25 ladies, which 19 RSVP YES! So the bridal shower was to start at 6 at my sisters home (which is 2 hours away for ME and only about 20 minutes for all the ladies invited)!!!! 6 Came around and only my grandmother, aunt, and fathers new girlfriend show up, so I call and text everyone to see where they are?!?
K- BEST FRIEND – Running late, dropping off her kids. NEVER SHOWS UP
D & T – BEST FRIEND – Running late, SHOW UP AT 10:30 when we are cleaning up
Y – COUSIN – her mom doesnt want to babysit, never even called to say that she wasnt coming, I called her.
E – Future Sister-In-Law – never showed up. Sent FACEBOOK MESSAGE that she had to pick up her kid “last minute”
N – Future Sister-In-Law – DIDNT REPLY AND NO SHOW
M – FMIL – Called to say she was running late – Arrived at 8:30 (Which I appreciate cuz she just started a new job and went straight after work)
C – BEST FRIEND – said she was running late – NEVER SHOWED UP (Posted on FACEBOOK that she was at a BASEBALL GAME!!!)
All in all there were only 8 of us which we would have continued the festivites as was but waiting on people to “come” kept postponing all the events scheduled and then they didnt even show up, so I couldnt even enjoy MY bridal shower :0( All those decorations wasted and food wasted and time wasted!
But I did learn one thing!!! If they couldnt make it to a shower which was 20 minutes away, what makes me think that they will attent my wedding 2 hours away? I just know not to count on them the day of. The wedding starts at 5 and I am def not waiting on NO ONE on MY SPECIAL DAY!!! (END RANT)
