L22 Thank you for replying to my post. You are 100 % right. I cannot read other peoples mind but I’m just too shy to mention anything to my FI’s daughters about a bachelorette party.(But the more I think about it, I just might say something to the younger one with whom I’m very close). I have mentionned it to my Fiance that I would really like it if his daughters organized something but knowing him, he never wants to rock the boat so I doubt he will say anything to his girls.

As far as my best friend is concerned, well, lets just say, i would fall of a chair if she did take the time to organize anything for me. You see, her and I have had a love-hate friendship in that when i first became friends with her I was very young and had no confidence at all in myself. She’s quite a few years older than I and its like I placed her on a pedastal for many years and i would do anything she asked me to. But it didn’t go both ways. Alot of people have over the years asked me why I was her friend; couldn’t I see how jealous she was of me, etc. etc. etc. I didn’t see it until one day when my mom got very sick and passed away. It seems like something really big has to happen in your life to start rethinking your life, your friends, your goals, etc. So, after my mom passed away «i did kind of detached (but with love) from this friend. We are still very close her and I but things just aren’t exactly how they were years ago. The one time when I did realize that yes maybe she was a jealous person is when I announced to her that I was getting married. Four days later, she called me and said: “I hate to burst your bubble, but X and I are also getting married and we will do so before you”!  I could not believe it “. She has been with her Fi for over 25 years; they have never married because she keeps telling me they don’t have the money to do so. But when she learned that I was getting married…funny how all of sudden she found the funds. This being said, I’m getting married in less than 80 days and she hasn’t told anything about her wedding except to tell me that I wouldn’t be invited because she can’t afford to have me and my Fiance at her reception which according to her, will only involved her two children, her sister in law and brother in law. I told her if she didn’t invite me, I would not talk to her anymore. This time I mean it.

 

Anyways, sorry for rambling on. I’ll just let destiny take care of this bachelorette thing. If in the days before the wedding nothing is done about it by someone, knowing me, I will do something special just for me and call it my Bachelorette party.

 

I hope you have a wonderful time at your bachelorette party! Enjoy it and please come back and let me know how it went.

The only thing I really know about my bridal shower is the date, because I got to pick it, March 29th and of course…..my mom can’t keep secrets so I know the theme. No outfit picked out yet, I really need to start looking!

@Lauraine:  

 

Your long-term friend has been with her Fiance for 25 years and wants to get married.  You have been with your Fiance for 25 years and want to get married.   It’s okay for you, but not okay for her??  That makes no sense. Who are you to judge her?

 

And you want a shower, but she doesn’t get one? Your friend is getting married, but all you think of is yourself?

 

You are really not speaking like a kind, mature woman.  You continually whine-on this thread and others.

My shower is March 23rd! 

I just cut out my dress this weekend; my goal was to finish it in February (meant to get going on it sooner…) and I might make it still, but in any case it will be well on its way to done.

@Polygon:  How funny!  I suppose it was the best way to stay prepared, though.  😉

Speaking of which, I happened to look at a couple of my registries and some things have already been bought!  Now I’m trying to stop myself from registry stalking so I will be surprised the day of…
