- Wedding: July 2014
It’s been a long while since I’ve been active on the bee because wedding planning got REAL. We invited around 400 (BLAH!) people to our wedding as we bth have huge huge families. As far as I knew, we invited my cousins wifes parents. I noticed I didn’t get an RSVP from them. Her mom came to the bridal shower my aunt threw me. I texted cousins wife and asked her about the status of their reply. She said they didn’t receive one. Confused, I said that I gave cousins wife her moms invitation at the bridal shower. She said that I didn’t and that I told her I had forgotten it? I don’t recall this, but I don’t think she is lying. Her parents are on the invite list and now I am just so embarrassed at the thought that her mom came to my bridal shower, got me a gift, and didn’t get an invitation.
I called her mom to apologize for the mix up and that I would her to come. She says not to worry and that things like this happen during wedding planning, but that she and her husband already made other plans (a BBQ) and that she loves me and wishes me the best, etc. She’s not upset or offended it seems. Maybe she didn’t want to come or doesn’t enjoy weddings? I’m not sure. Her son is coming, though and he’s excited to come. I just feel so bad about it. They’re super nice people and cousins wifes mom stuck out her neck for me years ago to get me a job at the bank where she worked. I feel like I can’t breathe from all of these last minute preparations and mix ups and details. I think my head might blast off of my body.
I’m overreacting, right? This happens to everyone, right?
