I’m so sorry for the added stress, that’s rough. I don’t think what you’re doing is unreasonable considering the circumstances. I would explain to your grandmother that all the showers will be the same and that it helped to minimize so many people at a venue where they couldn’t all be accommodated. Or you could simply let her know you are trying to include everyone without making it awkward for anyone. I hope everything works out. Sending hugs and positive thoughts your way!

What?  Not to be judgey but your grandmother and aunts sound like they are being a touch insensitive and inflexible.  A lot of people have multiple showers, that is totally normal.  You’d think she’d be glad to be off the hook for one or two of them! 🙂  Everyone’s always got to have their hair in a knot about something, jeez.  Just do the best you can is what I say and let the chips fall where they may.

I’m so sorry, Vintage (((HUGS)))

That sounds so stressful. Have you had a chance to talk to your grandmother yet?

I’m so sorry – this sounds like a terribly stressful situation. I don’t have much advice, but if it makes you feel better I think you handled the whole situation very tactfully and I don’t really understand why anyone is upset. You really did nothing wrong. Good luck. I hope this all works out in the end.

I am sorry to hear this.  You handled the situation in the best possible way you could given the circumstances (the seperate showers).  I think your Grandma is being a little unreasonable.  Hopefully she will put this past her.

I think you’ve been totally understanding in trying to avoid treading on everyone’s feelings and your grandma (and relatives) are being a bit silly.  Hopefully they will understand.

I’m glad to hear that you were able to come to a solution. I’m sorry your aunt is still talking about it to other people–she needs to get over it. Kinda sucks you were put into this situation/drama because of your step-mom and now she won’t even be there! Ah well–either way I’m sure you’ll have an amazing 3 showers!!

That is so frustrating!  It sounds like your aunt is just very VERY selfish.  “I don’t want to attend THAT shower because all of MY friends will be at the OTHER shower…”  Ok lady, you need to remember this isn’t YOUR party!  UGH!!  I’m actually annoyed FOR you.  And as for your g-mother…wow.  Seriously?  You’ve done very well accomodating everyone and she’s crying about it for God’s sake?!?!  I don’t understand these people…you have been VERY nice about it, even extending the extra invites.  I think at this point you should just ignore it and wait until the shower to pounce on your aunt… “So Auntie, are you happy now that you got to attend BOTH showers?  Or are you still going to complain about it to [grapevine] on Monday?”
