- Wedding: September 2011
long story short, i have to plan my own bridal shower AND pay for it if i want one…
short story long. my Future Mother-In-Law told me i didnt have any friends so she wasnt throwing me a bridal shower. ya thanks for makin me feel good. but i do have friends so when they started asking about when my shower was going to be i told them i probably wasnt having one. both of my bridesmaids live Out of Town so its almost impossible for them to come out because of their jobs. so an old co worker said shed help me with a bridal shower. she told me to pick a theme and let her know. so i scoured every website i could find for themes and decided on one. i texted her and told her she said cool now what about games? so i sent her a list of games. she said well what about decorations. so i told her im almost done with wedding stuff so i can make that since im a stay at home mom and she works full time. then i asked her when she wanted to go shopping for stuff and look at somewhere we could have a shower she said well i cant pay for anything so you’ll have to pay it all yourself….
i unserstand showers are optional. she said she would help me but after talking with her im doing it all myself. i dont mind making invites and stuff but seriously im not going to throw my own party that makes me feel like a loser. i talked with Fiance last night about it and he told me not to stress its ok if i dont get one. i only plan on getting married once and i’d kinda like the full package. im not getting a bachelorette party, we didnt get an engagment party so we are literally only getting a wedding and i feel like im missing out on a lot.
we are already on a really tight budget and im not trying to be a spoiled brat or bridezilla but i want something. im watching my friends and family who got married before me have all these parties and wedding related celebrations and brunches and im not asking for all of them im just asking for one! i totally feel like a loser for having to do it myself and being told by my Future Mother-In-Law im pretty much a loser cus i have no friends.
thanks for reading i really needed to vent. 🙂
