- Wedding: September 2010
My bridal shower is this weekend and I am so rediculously excited for it…and nervous…and awkward feeling. Here is the situation.
My Maid/Matron of Honor has been super excited about throwing me a bridal shower. She has e-mailed me countless times about menu, games, decor, etc. Because all my other attendents live in other states, she has been planning on throwing the party for me herself. Well, she is the mother to two young children and her rustic, unfinished house is not really where she envisioned throwing the party for me…so she asked my mom if she could have the party at her house. My mom was fine with it and originally agreed to “just” have the party at her home and let Maid/Matron of Honor plan it. She did not want any part of the planning. Well, Maid/Matron of Honor sent out invitations to the list my mom and I put together and began reciving RSVPs. Meanwhile, my mom was growing more and more talkative about the shower, talking about all the work she was doing in her flower beds, etc. Before I knew it, my mom had decided that she would pay for the entire bridal shower and told Maid/Matron of Honor this. Maid/Matron of Honor felt a little awkward, but did’nt really know what to say. I have realized over the past week that my mom thinks she is throwing this shower for me, but Maid/Matron of Honor still thinks that SHE is throwing the shower for me. I unfortunately have gotten caught in the middle and am feeling very anxious about the whole situation. Maid/Matron of Honor told me about the shower because I live out of state and we had to come up with a weekend together, so I can understand why I have been privy to details, but now I am feeling like I have just gotten caught up in all the details.
I asked my mom tonight to call Maid/Matron of Honor and work out the details for the shower, after I realized that they were both planning on setting up for it with the other’s “help”.
Has anyone else had an experience like this? I am feeling torn and nurvous. On top of all of this, my parents will be meeting FI’s mom and sister for the first time this weekend…and my shower will be smaller then expected due to lots of busy people…I don’t know how to feel about it all…
