I work in an office filled with men…(one other engineer is on maternity leave).  I’m the one to buy the cards and have everyone sign them for weddings/birthdays/showers (baby and otherwise)..When my turn came..i was sure it wouldn’t get done..but i was pleasantly surpised that the new administrator that was just hired a few weeks before I left for my wedding ended up getting a card and a handful of people did pitch in to get us a nice gift card.  If your office typically do cake and card for birthday, maybe they have something for you when you get back. ๐Ÿ™‚

We celebrate babies, weddings, birthdays, etc, but last year my birthday was not acknowledged and neither was my promotion. I think in our office you have to be part of some sort of ‘inside circle’ for these things to happen. I really just…stopped caring.

I’d be upset if I were you, but I think that women and their catty-ness can overshadow how to be a good person and females in offices start drama. Forget them…they are being turds right now. You know that they knew when your wedding is. You still have a week to go, according to your date on your profile, so maybe they are still getting something together?

I didn’t get any recognition/cake/whatever, but I did get engaged before I was technically hired (I worked on a volunteer basis in my lab for a while before I graduated). I got an excited text the night before the wedding from my coworkers who were all at a conference together… I was pretty happy with that ๐Ÿ™‚ And we DO usually organize cupcakes or whatever for birthdays, so it’s not like we’re totally lazy… just that the workforce doesn’t stop for one person’s wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a pretty phenomenal work place and they threw me a huge (and probably my best) shower, they asked all the time how plans were, but I also invited them all to my wedding, and many attended. So I feel really greatful for all the attention my wedding got from my work, it was a sacrifice too, since I had to pay for many of them to attend the wedding (although I wouldn’t change that because it was special to have them there). 

I am very sorry, your wedding isn’t being acknowledged though, thats weird and a bit sad. But as some pp’s have mentioned sometimes women are weird, and sometimes work is weird to, people are just to distracted with their own lives to acknowledge what is going on in others. For what its worth, its almost your wedding, woohoo!

I’m right there with you sister. I’ve gotten nothing while last year I help throw a nice breakfast shower for one of my co-workers who had gotten married. It’s crazy. Oh and I’m throwing a baby shower next week before I leave to go to my wedding.. I guess I wont get one cause I’m the party planner lol!

I’m the office manager and work with mostly men. Cards or flowers are only bought for employees if I do it. So nothing for me but that’s okay…I didn’t expect anything.

@Ms. Gremmlin– Thank you I seriously doubt it though. It’s only a few of us that are that thoughtful and they haven’t said anything about it. It’s okay though I know it’s a GREAT Deal to me..  I agree we all deserve it.. It just sucks we don’t get it. And to me it’s not even about the “shower/gifts” etc it’s about saying aww “Congrats we are soo happy for you” UGH… I’ve been with my company for 5 years and have seen tons of Baby/Wedding Showers here.

I think we should have a “Bee’s Shower” online and just have a CONGRATS to all post ๐Ÿ˜‰
