- Wedding: June 2012
Here is the situation… Tell me what you think ladies! I will try to keep it as short as possible
When Fiance and I got engaged I aske my sister to be my Maid/Matron of Honor. She immidiatly asked about having to do a speech and bachlorette party and bridal shower. I told her I wasnt expecting anything and everythign was up to her.
She is going through a rough time finacially and when my FAMIL asked about a shower I told her I wasnt having one since we were 6 weeks from my wedding and no one had said anything about it. She immidiatly said I needed to have one and her and my Fiance brothers Girlfriend started planning one for june 2/3rd. In about 2 hours they had about everything nailed down but a guest list which I was worknig on providing for her and to figure out if they should have it saturday or sunday afternoon.
A few days later (4-5) my sister calls and TELLS me my grandma has offered to let my sister have a shower for me at her house and she has picked the next week to have it(would have been yesterday).
I told her when she called my FAMIL had already offered and was in the process of sending out invites but if she wanted to help I would give FAMIL her number and they could hash out some details.
WELL FAMIL never called my sister because everything was all set. My sister had asked me what was going on and I told her they were still debating days. MY WONDERFUL sister took it upon herself to decide saturday was better and tell everyone in my family this (which wasnt true they had actually decided 3rd) and so my brother decided to have my nefews birthday party the same day as my shower at the same time.
My sister also took it upon herself to reserve a place to have my shower after I told her FAMIL wanted to have it al her house. So everyone also thought it would be there till they actually got the invitation
My mom seems to think FAMIL should have called my sister as a curtiosy and that is FAMIL fault people got confused.
I have tried to stay out of this but it seems like I am caught in the middle. My sister has my FAMIL phone number and could have called her but she hasnt done this. I am so mad that this has even happend and I dont know what to do.
MY FAMIL is trying to do something nice for me and I will blow my top if someone says otherwise to her on sunday!
