I love my mom to pieces and I know that she means well, but she has been asking me for advice/approval on every single aspect of the bridal shower. Where to have it, what will be on the menu, what the decorations should be, etc., etc.
I was talking to her last night and she didn’t like any of the invitations she saw so I somehow got roped into designing the shower invites!! I designed the Save-The-Date Cards and she loved them soooooo much that she said I should just do the shower invites too.
Haha I guess at the end of the day I don’t mind. At least I know I’ll love the shower since I’m making all the decisions! LOL
Anyone else totally over involved with the bridal shower?

@TinyTina: Wow! You guys are sorting out bridal shower invites already? that’s crazy. I am not going to be involved at all in mine! I’ve told them that this is one area I want to be able to sit back and relax for.

@adnama: My mom is insane. There’s really no other explanation. Hahaha.

I’m the one coordinating the date. My little sis is Maid/Matron of Honor, hasn’t been in a wedding before, so I sort of have to guide (push) her through it. She’s excited and all, just not a big planner (and I’m totally type A, LOL). Thankfully my other Maid/Matron of Honor is married and on top of her game, so I don’t think I’ll have to do too much. Plus, Mr.ND’s side is having a shower for me in a different town, so I have to make sure that things don’t overlap. I’m trying to stay as far out of it as I can other than scheduling.

Yea only one of my bridesmaids is married and she is kinda nutso so I can’t see my mom relying on her lol. The other girls have just never really been involved in weddings before so I think my mom likes having someone to bounce ideas off of. It just cracks me up that I’m now working on the shower invitations.

Yes I’m the one who picked the theme, favors, and location. She can’t do it alone

Yep, none of my girls have EVER been in weddings, so I’ve helped a bit with date, location, and theme ideas. I looked at some of their choices for invites too, because my Maid/Matron of Honor wanted to make sure I liked them, lol. She is really so awesome about it all though that it doesn’t bother me. 🙂

Yeah I’ve already been asked what theme, what activities, and what food I want. I also had to pick the date and call to ask all the important people (my mom, fmil, etc) if that would work with them. I’ve had to be the contact between my Maid/Matron of Honor and bridesmaids and apparently I’m in charge of going and picking out the invitations. Shower’s at the end of January so we need to get those out asap.
