That really sucks that you and your mom have to pick up the slack here. Your Maid/Matron of Honor couldn’t Google some examples of couple’s shower invitations? Or, at the very least, ask you? Oh well, it’s water under the bridge now. 

I think you and your mother are handling this in the best way you can. Just make a little joke about it at the party how the invitations were goofed (without embarrassing your Maid/Matron of Honor of course!) and I think it’ll be just fine.

I would be just as frustrated with this. One would think to have some common sense to look into that stuff since it’s not a normal bridal shower. Kudos to you and your mom for taking the initiative to clarify with the guests. Although in my opinion, the Maid/Matron of Honor should be the one doing it and apologizing to the guests for screwing the invitations up.

highschoolhoneys:  Oh man. That really sucks. It’s so annoying when the invitation isn’t clear. 

If the bachelorette is supposed to be a surprise, maybe just check in with a couple bridesmaids (or other guests for that) who you trust. You can mention the couple shower mix up and just gently suggest that Maid/Matron of Honor might need some help planning? I don’t know if that’s something you feel comfortable with, but man…. I’d be stressed out about it too.

highschoolhoneys:  Yeah, you’re right. It’d be pretty terrible if the woman you asked to do unpaid labor for you made some human errors in her good-faith and loving attempt to support you in your wedding.

Yes, that’s a bit harsh, but I wanted to give you a slight reality check. She made a mistake. It isn’t the end of the world. She’s trying to help, she wants you to have nice experiences with your shower and bachelorette. Maybe cut her a little slack and remember that you aren’t entitled to any of this? That deciding that the time, money, and effort she’s putting in isn’t up to your expectations is a little bit mean?
