- Wedding: July 2011
Okay, first of all I probably shouldn’t be complaining because, like, logically I know that I’m really lucky and I am making a big deal about nothing but I need to VENT and I don’t know of any place that will understand like WeddingBee.
So, I’m getting married in Oregon, where I’m from, but I live in NYC. My Maid/Matron of Honor lives here too, but my BMs live in other states. My Maid/Matron of Honor and I came up with the idea of having the bachelorette party and bridal shower over Memorial Day weekend in NYC. It’s a long weekend, great time of year to be here, yadda yadda. My Maid/Matron of Honor exchanged a few emails with my girls and a couple of them suggested doing it in Vegas instead, since it’s closer for them and we could stay with one of the girls. So the options presented to me was doing it in Vegas or in NYC, and I decided to go with NYC because most of my friends are here and I wanted to celebrate with as many girls as I could.
Then I hear back that one can’t come because her laptop broke and she has to buy another and is strapped for cash (she’s a grad student, so it’s understandable), and another says she can’t come b/c she’s going on an anniversary trip with her boyfriend that weekend. Why didn’t she say this at the very beginning???? Why string us along like Memorial Day weekend would work if it WOULDN’T? I mean, apparently she was fine with going to Vegas, but not NYC. I don’t know. Vegas is closer, so maybe it was more reasonable to go there for a shorter period of time, but I just don’t get it. I don’t get why you would say “Hey, let me know!” and then be all “No, I have plans.” I just don’t get it. Maybe she didn’t put things together, or maybe her boyfriend was like “Actually we can’t reschedule…” or something. I don’t know.
I’m trying to rationalize it and not get bent out of shape b/c seriously, I know this isn’t a big deal. I guess I’m just frustrated that I live so far from my girls and that they won’t all be here and I’m feeling sorry for myself.
Sigh. Thanks for listening, ya’ll.
