So if you’ve read my past threads you know that I was pretty bummed at the aspect of not getting a bridal shower. Reading all of the advice on here made me realize that shower does not a marriage make and no one is “obligated” to throw you one so I should just be happy with the fact that I’m marrying the man of my dreams. And it worked! I got over it and have been plugging along without a care in the world.
Then today my boss calls me into an emergency sales meeting and….SURPRISE!!! My co-workers got together and threw me a very nice shower at lunch today complete with cake, gifts and lots of cash! It took everything in me not to cry (Lord knows I was shaking like a leaf though!). I have not stopped smiling since.
Anyway, I just wanted to share a bit of good news for once. Maybe this will give other brides like me hope. The lesson is expect nothing and you might get everything you hoped for. 🙂

@MadameTussaud: Thank you! This past year has been a struggle and reading all these posts about “no one caring about your wedding day” and “no one has to do anything for you” was really depressing. I mean, I’m not perfect or anything, but I always saw birthdays, weddings, births, etc. as a cause for celebration and was eager to shower my loved ones with help, gifts, attention…whatever they needed/wanted to celebrate the occasion. So it really hurt when the same wasn’t reciprocated when it was my turn. (I know, I know brides aren’t entitled to anything…lol). Anyway, at least now I can say people DO care and DO want to help me celebrate this awesome occasion! 🙂 Hope lives!
