I am in an upcoming wedding. And the shower is in a few months, her mom is having the shower for her. I live out of town so it would have been a lot harder for me to plan it, but I asked if she wanted me to have a shower for her, but she said she only wanted the one, and that my job was to plan the bachelorette. Which I am totally cool with.
Anyways, it seems like everything I do is wrong lately. But the latest one is this:
I asked her what she wanted for her shower, a gift, money, or what? She told me to get her a gift, and that she would like anything I got her. So I decided to get her a bit more of a personal gift. I bought us matching pjs to wear the day before her wedding, and tops for me and her and the other Bridesmaid or Best Man saying “bride”, etc. Then I bought her 2 smaller items for the kitchen, that I noticed she didn’t have and could probably use.
Anyways, she had said all along she was happy I got her a gift. I spent roughtly $140 on the gift. Anyways, now she is saying…she is mad I bought her a gift, and that I am not paying for the party favors and gifts at the shower instead (which she never told me I had to pay for before).
I am on a pretty tight budget… and i’m already flying into town for the shower… is it wrong of me to say she should have told me sooner cuz I already bought a gift (which she knew I did).
I am a student, so money is tight for me (just a side note)
