It doesn’t sound like she did this on purpose – it was just an accident, and not completely her fault. People make mistakes, and in the grand scheme of things this isn’t a major one. I would cut her some slack and apologize for overreacting.

I would just deal with knowing that you know when your shower will be and move on. I know for me I have plenty of other things going on that are a bigger deal then knowing when my shower is. And yes I found out yesterday when my shower is going to be and I was hoping it was going to be a surprise.

It does sound like it was a simple mistake.  If it wasn’t clear that it was a surprise to your Maid/Matron of Honor, isn’t that more the fault of the organizers?  Think of it this way, you are having a lovely shower with your friends and family – and now you will be sure to be looking cute and bring your camera, etc!

My mom totally blew the surprise for my shower too, but it’s not like she meant to do it. And I don’t think your Maid/Matron of Honor meant to do it in this case either. I think you just go and act like you’re surprised. No one would be any wiser except for you. At least you can make sure you wear a cute outfit that day!

So the surprise was semi-ruined… bummer.  So your Maid/Matron of Honor said some things she probably shouldn’t have… oops.  Haven’t we all been in situations like this before where we say things we shouldn’t or accidentally let something slip?  It happens. 

In 5 years are you going to remember that you kinda (but not really) found out a little bit about your shower?  Or, are you going to remember what actually is going to happen, all the memories, and the people who are there?

Aw man, that really stinks! I don’t like ruined suprises either- but  maybe they are REALLY throwing you off 🙂 Just try and make the best of it either way!!
