So my sister who is my MOH has put together my bachlorette party for next weekend. I am super excited (im not supposed to know what we are doing but Ive pretty much figured it out) we are going up to Seattle for a celebrity drag show! It is going to be amazing! One of my 4 bridesmaids I knew wasn’t going to be able to make it. She lives over in Vegas and fights fires during the summer. She is extremely busy and I am so greatful she was able just to get the weekend of my wedding off to be in it. But then things started to be a bit of a bummer when one of my other bridesmaids who has been my best friend since we were 13 told me she wasn’t coming. She has always been kind of flakey and has bailed on things before but this is something we had talked about since we were 13 and now she isn’t coming because of some competition she decided to do. I was pretty upset for a while but then I decided that its my party and Im going to concentrate on the good, not the bad! So as the weeks are creeping closer I am getting more and more excited. Then today I got a phone call from my sister. She told me that in her invites she told people they must get their tickets to this show fast because it will sell out quickly. Apprently only one person took this to heart and it wasn’t my other bridesmaid. So now the only people with tickets to the show is me (since my sister bought it for me since im not supposed to know) my sister, and my friend. While we can meet up with everyone after the show I have to say Im pretty disappointed. Im trying to stay positive and focus on the fact that it will still be amazing and fun, Im just bummed. Mostly at the fact that even the girls I considered most important in my life arn’t going to be with me to share this with me.
Anyways, I feel a little better now that I was able to get that all out. Sorry for the long rant!

No worries–I was upset when certain people weren’t coming to my bachelorette party too. I know it sucks now, but I know you will still have a fabulous time!! You’ll still have tons of fun at the drag show with your sister and friend, and like you said, you can meet up with others afterwards!

Thank you! That makes me feel a lot better, just the reassurance really works wonders! 🙂

It’ll be fine! Just have fun with the people who are there. My bachelorette was my sister and friend taking me to dinner. I don’t have a lot of friends, so I just enjoyed my time with them!

My bachelorette was in NYC the same weekend as hurricane Irene. It was supposed to be the whole weekend (Fri night, all day Sat, Sat night, and Sunday).
It ended up only being Friday night and my sister (MOH) couldn’t even come because she couldn’t risk not being able to get back to CA and she’d done most of the organizational hard work.
It was still a great time, and I have to say I was so glad the hurricane interrupted my bachelorette and NOT my wedding.

Try to focus on the positives. Noone will have done it on purpose…sometimes lives get busy and the extra details get forgotten. The main thing is that they will meet you after the show and be there to have fun with you…albeit a little later on!

Thanks guys! I do feel much better about the whole thing. I think I just needed to get it out and have a little reassurance that it is going to be ok. I knew it would be, but everything seems to be in a much better light now!

be upset ….sure i would be too!!! You’ll have a blast even if it is ends up being just you and your sister!!
I’ve been to loads of bachelorettes (we call them Hens Nights in Australia) The ones that I have enjoyed the most have always been the ones with less people!!! You will love it!!!!
