- Wedding: June 2013
First off, let me start off saying I in NO way, shape, or form expect my Bridesmaid or Best Man to be slaves. Or spend a lot of money quite frankly.
I have purchased their dresses, and they are wearing their own shoes. I have bought them all wonderful Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, have scheduled everything I needed them there for (fittings/alterations) around THEIR schedules. Im only asking them if they would like to pay for hair and makeup to be done day of wedding. Thats it. And thats not a requirement.
My wedding is 4 months away, to the date. My mom told me today she does not want to throw me a bridal shower because she doesn’t have time. I have heard no word of a bachelorette party.
I tried to plan a group trip in March for all my friends, not labelling it as a bachelorette party but just calling it a get together and considering it on my one last hurrah with my friends (I work two jobs, go to school and pursue two serious hobbies…my time is VERY limited)
I kindly asked my best friend this morning, if she was thinking about throwing me a bachelorette party or bridal shower at all because I needed to make sure I wasn’t working at all if she did. She told me she didn’t know this was her job and she doesn’t like party planning.
How did you kindly let your Bridesmaid or Best Man know that the bride isn’t supposed to plan her own parties, because its considered rude? My friends think if I want one I should throw it myself, but I feel like thats asking for gifts. Any ideas?
