- Wedding: November 2013
My girlfriends live all over the country, as does my family, and I don’t have a huge network where I live now. My fiance has family in the area, and they are pretty close (see each other a few times a year). For many reasons, I was certain I was not going to have a bridal shower, and was completely fine with it. My fiance would ask if I was going to have one, and I said probably not (our wedding is not following a few “rules” of weddings and I like it that way). My best friend through a mini shower (just us) when I visited her this year and I told my fiance excitedly that I had “my bridal shower” that day.
In our area, people usually give gifts of money at weddings, and physical gifts at showers. We registered for gifts for those few people who like to give physical gifts, and also as a Christmas/birthday list for me for the next couple years 🙂 We don’t need a lot, but there are a few things we need for our home.
I was helping my mom with her email when I saw an email from my fiance to her with the title “shower.” She scrolled quickly by, but I saw it. I am so touched that someone in, I’m assuming, his family is possibly planning something for me, but I really wish I didn’t know this. I just needed to share with someone, to get it out of my system! He tries so hard to surprise me, but they just get ruined every time. He either gets too excited and has to tell me, or I figure it out. I feel horrible I know. I am telling myself that maybe it will fall through and I’m trying to forget I saw it. Or I’m trying to convince myself that he and my mom will have a little “shower” for me just the two of them. Or maybe he’s going to clean my mom’s shower?!? 🙂 Have any of you been in that position? Help me forget!
