- Wedding: November 2011
It is not my responsibility to plan or send out invitations to my own Bridal Shower. I know this. Why then do I get a phone call from my Future Mother-In-Law asking why only one of her sisters was invited? By The Way…Maid/Matron of Honor sent an evite to those with emails, and traditional invites (supposedly) to those without. The list I gave her contained all the addresses from my wedding invitation list, they all received their invitations, all rsvp’d for the wedding. So I had their addresses correct.
Upon speaking to some of the confimed wedding guests, once again I am being asked about when the Bridal Shower is. I explain that my Maid/Matron of Honor is hosting and they will need to contact her. I refer them to checking their emails for the evite if applicable. I am “not supposed to know about it”. Mind you I had to create the actual Evite because Maid/Matron of Honor could not be bothered to do so herself. Mind you, I understand she has a family and a life. I was not expecting a shower. I didnt even want one to begin with. Still dont.
I know my Maid/Matron of Honor forgot to mail the invitations. She assured me she did. But I know her well enough to know that she forgot and is as I write this rushing out to CVS to buy invites and send them out right now. Assuming she can even find the list that I sent her, not once, not twice, but three times. Emailed, faceooked, and printed. I’m dissapointed and sad. I remember doing everything in my power when I was her Maid/Matron of Honor to make sure she had a good time at her shower and bachelorette. I’m this close to just teling everyone Maid/Matron of Honor included to just please cancel it. I dont want to deal with it.
I want to cry. I know I dont “deserve” a party just because I’m getting married. It’s ot even about that. I think I’m most upset that I cant rely on anyone for anything. How is it I’m supposed to have al these people standing up wih me and supporting me and I feel so al alone? Too late. Now I’m crying.
