- Wedding: April 2012
I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but today was to the worst day ever because of my bridal shower. I felt like crying the entire time because my mom had to organize it with a client/ friend of mine ( who is now an ex-friend of mine). My mom and I arrived early to decorate and yes I decorated and my mom cooked. My Maid/Matron of Honor came on time with a fruit tray and a vegetable tray from Walmart , that was sweet, but that was the least she could do because she did not think to perform her duties as a Maid/Matron of Honor and help plan the party. When my MoH came in she asked if she could help decorate because she saw I was decorating, but after I told her what I needed she never lifted a finger to help. She asked me repeatedly to be my MoH and I couldn’t have made a “better” choice right???
My client/friend, now ex-friend, promised to have all the bridal shower games, she promised a wonderful bachelorette party that night, she promised to help set up and clean up, she promised favors for the girls, she promised her heart out. In the end, she came an hour and 30min. late and she was rude, for whatever reason. She did bring a cake, no games, no bachelorette party, no favors, no help, just a cake and attitude. She actually showed up and left in 20 minutes. The only reason why I think she brought the cake is because it had my name on it. She had been a clingy friend and made me felt obligated to talk with her 24/7 because she was planning my bridal shower with my mom. The one time I couldn’t spend time with her was the day before the shower and she ruined my shower because of it.
It just hurts that the memory I have of my bridal shower are the few people that actually showed up consoling me because I was so hurt that day. I just needed to vent about it. Sorry for the long message. I would have never done something like this to anyone even if I was mad at them. I would never go back on my word/promises. Why did it have to happen to me?!? I’m just happy that I am marrying the man of my dreams.
