I’m sorry to hear that happened – it totally sucks.  Nice to hear your Fiance was so sweet and thoughtful though!

Oh no! I’m so sorry, that’s just terrible.  Have you talked with any of the people who were supposed to attend but didn’t?  I’m hoping they have some good excuses because that is awful.  Any chance the invite said the wrong time or date?

At least you have a wonderful friend that would throw you such a beautiful shower and clearly a wonderful fiance.

Wow, I’m so sorry that happened to you.  I agree, the people that didn’t show, or didn’t even bother to say they weren’t coming so you didn’t expect them, are at fault.  I’d want answers.  You’re Fiance is so sweet to try to make you feel better!

::hugs:: Blah! Sorry to hear what happened. 🙁 I’d want answers too. Your Fiance is wonderful for trying to cheer you up.

I used to live in MGM and seeing bees from there makes me kind of homesick.

what about your mother or bridesmaids or MOH?? im so sorry that happend, i would be so upset but just think your wedding will be amazing. as far as giving her the money back…she paid the money for a shower for you, you had your shower even if there wasnt a big attendence.. i just pray that my bridal shower is not like this…even though my bridesmaids all pretty much suck and are only showing up to get to eat for free and drink on us…

I am so sorry! This happened to my dearest friend too. I was shocked that out of 300 invites ony seven of us showed even though 196 rsvp’d yes. People can be so inconsiderate! I wouldn’t worry about giving her the money. I am sure she hurt for you and expects no such thing.

 I am so frustrated with this, that i want to include this note in my wedding ivitations. (Want to, not necessarily going to.)

Dear Guest,

We very sincerely would like you to attend our wedding, however we realize that sometimes circumstances arise that prohibits this. If you have already RSVP’d yes and something comes up please contact us ASAP. Our final headcount has to be turned in 72hours before our wedding day at which point we are committed to paying for your meal. We hate to see good food go to waste and would appreciate your help in this matter. Thank you!

You would be surprised how many people from this area don’t understand this! Most seem to have never been to a professionally catered event. Ugh!

Well, I had a similar situation happen to me with my bridal shower and bachelorette party and I was soooo hurt…the only people that showed up were the bridesmaids, and the reason I was so hurt is because I try to go out of my way for everyone else and do everything I can to support them, but when it came down to my only moment, no one came through….it has certainly changed my view once again on people, and my husband felt absolutely horrible that it happened,
