Wow I am so sorry that happened. But at least the food was yummy and the gifts were good!

I really don’t know what to say about your Maid/Matron of Honor, has she ever acted like this before? If she does do it again, definitely bring it up.

I’m sorry there were negatives.  I have to chuckle a little because you said how you were focusing on the positive, yet your paragraph describing the negative was three times as long as the one describing the positive.  LOL!  (But I totally get it.  That would be me too!)

As for the Maid/Matron of Honor thing…strange.  Perhaps she isn’t experienced in showers, and wasn’t really thinking?  Maybe she’s uncomfortable talking in front of others and worried that the game wouldn’t go over well?  I don’t think I would bother to discuss it with her, because I’m assuming there wouldn’t be another situation where she would be doing this for you again.  You know what she’s wearing to the wedding, right?  Maybe if she’s making a speech you could mention something about not talking to o loud or slow (or however she sounded at the shower).  But for the most part I would just let it be.

Honestly, I wouldn’t say anything to the Maid/Matron of Honor.  It’s not like anything you say will change the way she acts (especially if getting fired didn’t change it!) and confronting her will only cause drama before the wedding.  It’s not like these things will be a problem again- she’s wearing the bridesmaid dress and won’t be in charge or explaining things since the shower is over. If you do want to address her clothing, I say wait until the wedding is over…

awww at least you had a mostly successful shower! 🙂

i’m so nervous about mine… integrating the two families, etc. HUGE language barrier… AHHHHHH.

it sounds like the bad points are probably more highlighted in your head, as your the bride, than with your guests… i’m sure they didn’t even notice anything that poppped out to you… as for your scantily clad Maid/Matron of Honor, i wouldn’t say anything, she probably didn’t mean any harm and just didn’t know any better…

it sucks thta one of your BM’s was so uncoopertaive… but every time she pops up in your head, just think of your delish choco fountain! that always makes me smile! choco fountains i mean :P!

Ohhh, well I’m sorry it wasn’t all you hoped it would be.  At least you got some good presents and food :o)

All my mom and sister have done is complain about planning my shower.  They keep saying that my friends/BMs are taking attitudes with them being difficult.  I can’t imagine my friends “having an attitude.”  I’m so worried about how things are going to work out :o(
