I am sorry that would totally bum me out too! My mom forgot to show up for our meeting with the reception site coridnator and I called her and my brother said she was busy and hung up!! Granted my brother is only 8 so he had no idea why I was in such a panic but believe me I cried!!

awhhh i feel for you! i have a shower next week, and the weekend following and my Maid/Matron of Honor (my little sister) is going to be missing both of them (she’s an actress & currently in a show). i know she can’t change her profession to accomodate my showers, but i know what it feels like to be dissapointed anyway. enjoy your shower regardless!!

My mom was supposed to come up to Seattle for my bridal shower this past weekend and had to cancel at the last minute (her father is very ill).  I’m sorry yours isn’t going to yours either 🙁  Just think of it this way.. no embarassment when you open that candy garter, or chocolate flavored body paint! 😉

Um.  I may be in the minority but I would express to her how important this is to you.  In the end both she and you could regret missing these important events.  Can she find a replacement.  I think people would be ok with hearing “Oh no!  I completely messed up, that is the day of my daughter’s wedding shower.”

I have to agree with heather25, and would suggest you voice your opinion. You don’t have to be harsh at all, just calmly say, “I can’t help it, but it does hurt my feelings.”

I’m kind of upset that your mom will miss your shower because she committed to driving some elderly people around. I mean, family comes first, and while the shower isn’t the wedding, it’s still an important part of the process.

I’m really sorry, hun. This just sucks.

I don’t think wanting your mom there is selfish at all.  I also don’t think if there is anything at all she can do about it you will be making her feel badly.  She may not see the importance of this event for you.  My heart hurts for you guys.

Yeah, I would be upset too. That really sucks. I agree with Miss Chapstick about family coming first. Is she 100% certain that absolutely no one else can take her place? You might not want to make her feel worse, but like heather25 said she might feel worse if she regrets not coming later on.

Regardless, I’m sure you will still have a great time at your shower! You’ll get caught up talking to everyone there and opening your gifts and you will have a blast. Maybe you and your mom could schedule a special mother-daughter day soon after so you can share some time, just the two of you.

Your dad?  Can he drive?  I would drive the old ladies if I lived near you all.
