- Wedding: June 2012
long vent sad sorry in advice for being all complainey.
My mom and I began planning my wedding shower months ago. My Maid/Matron of Honor was going to be in spain for an extended period so my mom wanted to host the shower (she probably would have anyway)
She wanted to have it in her town at her church with her friends which was perfectly fine with me, the wedding is out of town and many people can’t or just won’t come.So my mom decided this would be the way all of her friends could celebrate with us.
We planned a huge event. IDK how many people were invited, but we estimated about 80 would be there. My mom myself and my Fiance put in a lot of work getting things ready. and he was even there for the whole event.
Except…very few people came, and by that I mean, my mom invited well over 100 people and about 20 came.
She was extremely hurt and so was I.
We both cried at my shower in the bathroom while the few guests who came got their lunches.
We had an entire luncheon catered to feed over 80 people….
One of the guests came in and my sister and bridesmaid was the door greeting people, and said put this at the front, so she will open it first and I can get out of here. The same guest walked up behind me talking to someone else and said I hope we don’t play any stupid games I wish she’d just open my gift so I can get out of here.
Another one came up to me and asked if I was a relative of the bride?????
We let them eat opened the gifts and let everyone leave…we didn’t play the game I worked really hard on or anything..even better…no one got us stuff off our registries nor did they give us gift recipets so my Fiance and I spent the whole evening returning gifts to places we werent even sure if that’s where they came from, and getting the lowest value on a gift card….sigh..
I would have rather people came and not brought us a thing and acted like they gave a d#mn about myself and my family than people showing up who couldn’t careless…no one dragged these people there…i don’t understand why come if you hate it so much…
and i guess the people who didn’t show up, well at least they didn’t bring a sour attitude with them…
my mom considered these people her friends and they either didn’t bother or came and acted like total a$$es
we are both so hurt. that was the only wedding shower i will ever have and that’s how it went. and then i get some of the same people rsvping yes to the wedding. it makes me so mad!
