- Wedding: October 2011
I just had my bridal shower on Saturday, i will post pictures as soon as i get them back from my friend that took them. I had such a great time, we played games and took pictures and had amazing cake my sister made and of course i got the most amazing presents!!
My step-mom (we are really close) was missing a couple times through out the shower, which i know it happens, people need to pee! i Get it. But she wasnt in the bathroom, she was out front having a cigerette and when i went looking she hid from me… i dont understand that at all. It was when we started to play the games… i just dont get why she didnt just tell me she didnt want to play, that would have been fine! But whatever that wasnt the big deal….
After everyone left she and i were by ourselves and she mentions “You dont even notice how much you have left me and your father out of the wedding planning, all those people got you exactly what you wanted because you told them, and you didnt tell us that is what you REALLY wanted” I was like “What? they just bought what was on my registry” i didnt tell anyone to get me something specific at all… They just bought whatever!! and i told her that the only time i was planning with someone else (my future MIL) is when she calls me and wants to go out shopping (which has only happened twice since we got engaged)…… I know that she feels threatened by my Mother-In-Law because she is very over the top and has more money than my parents, but she is so sweet and never intentional steps on anyones toes!! My mom is just being mean. She gave me attitude the rest of the day…. i dont know what i can do to make her happy at this point!! I have included them in stuff, but most of it im doing on my own…. buying things online and i went to my alterations alone. I dont know what else to include them in…. what did you all do with your parents? Did you give them things to do?
