- Wedding: October 2010
Let me start by saying that my bridal shower today was AMAZING! My friends put together an awesome weekend for the bachelorette/bridal extravaganza 🙂
Saturday night, there were about 15 people on the guest list. 4 people were out of town and I didn’t really expect them to show up (not counting my mom, sil, and sis) My mom drove from Charlotte (to Chicago) and I assumed that my SIL and sister would come too. Nope. Okay…2 cousins didn’t come out, but they aren’t really party-girls so that was ok. But, one of the 4 ended up coming to Chicago but didn’t come out. Said she “started reading a book and couldn’t pull herself together”. :-/ 3 of my friends who are in town didn’t even rsvp.
Today, none of FI’s aunts or cousins showed up for the shower. None of the above mentioned friends showed up. Didn’t rsvp either.
It doesn’t make me feel like ‘I’ll never speak to them again”. But it does make me feel kind of…wow. I’ve traveled from Minneapolis to Chicago for birthday parties, just because gatherings, etc. And yes, I do feel that of a 4 hour shower, you could’ve spared a half hour to stop by.
Bleh! I’ve questioned people getting all bent out of shape about it but I have to admit, it feels crappy.
Its okay, I got amazing gifts from amazing peeps, and I have just 48 days until I marry my baby!
