If it’s not a surprise, what’s stopping your Fiance from asking his Mom for the details?

Maybe they just assumed you didn’t need an invite? That’s a bit rude but it’s possible they assumed that, obviously, you’ll be at your shower. I mean, you don’t get invited to your own birthday party, even if someone else is throwing it.

I would find it very odd if I had received an invitation to a party that was all about me. I think you are making a mountain out of a molehill and if your Maid/Matron of Honor really wanted to organise your bridal shower she would have done so. Over-reacting isn’t a good idea, just go and have a good time.

If they cleared the date with you, it’s obvious they’ve not forgotten you, and since it’s a party in your honor, a paper invite or even an e-vite would be redundant in my mind. I’d reckon they’re keeping hush on the details to feed the element of surprise and excitement. I think you might be reading too much into this.

No you really are over-reacting.

Well then don’t go (even though you already know of all their plans and hard work) and cause a major wedding drama but go to your MOH’s party instead. There problem solved!

Im not the one venting because someone is throwing me a party and probably doing their best to welcome me into their family. That’s rude!

I never got an invitation for my own shower. I don’t really get what the problem is. Obviously it’s a shower for you guys so isn’t it clear that you’re invited??

Couldn’t you just ask what time it is at…? I would find it really odd to get an invite to my own shower. It’s unfortunate they excluded your MoH so much, but I think you should just let this go and enjoy the party.
