- Wedding: April 2012
Throughout this wedding planning process I have really grown irritated with some of my bridal party members, mainly my “friends.” Now, I am to the point where I just have to laugh. Because if not, I will probably cry.
The latest in the neverending dramatic saga that is my bridal party:
My shower date and time was set months ago. Everyone knew about it, invitations have not only been printed but sent out last week. Yesterday, one of my BM’s sends me a text message telling me that the time of my shower does not work with her schedule. She now wants to know if I can move my shower from Sunday afternoon to Sunday evening so it can accomodate her work schedule.
Now, I understand that people have to work. She said months ago that she was going to try to get off of work or switch shifts with someone. I told her not to worry about it (it is only the shower) and I would completely understand if she couldn’t make it. Work IS more important than a bridal shower. I even told her not to trouble herself at all and just skip the shower. She INSISTED that she has to be there and that she doesn’t want to miss it. Again, I told her I would completely understand if she could not make it.
I am not upset at the fact that she can not come. What I am upset about is the fact that she asked ME via text message to change the time of my shower knowing that this date and time has been set for months and knowing that THE INVITATIONS HAVE ALREADY GONE OUT.
