- Wedding: September 2010
hi bees. a family friend is hosting a bridal shower for me, and almost all of the guests are people i had not planned on inviting to the wedding. you can read that back story here.
FH and i have discussed, and decided it would be best to go ahead with the situation (it seems at this point, i can’t get out of it. i’ve tried. she wont give up) and ask her to keep the guest list small.
i really, really appreciate what she’s doing, and the fact that she is so set on doing this for me is sweet. i’m just really stressing over the $$ aspect of it.
I need to email the host tonight. can anyone help me politely get this point across?
“hi host. you’re throwing me a shower 4 hours away from my house and inviting tons of people i barely know! im so excited! i know its not nice to invite people to a shower and not to the wedding, and my wedding budget is already pretty stretched. can you keep the guest count down so i don’t have to uninvite my parents to make room for your friends? thanks host, you’re the best!!
