- Wedding: October 2013
I am a bit stress, I have four weddings to attend next month alone. One of which I am part of the bridal party. Plus, I am having my own wedding at the end of the year.
Anyhow, I was invited to my fiance’s cowoker’s bachelorette party this coming Monday in which another coworker is organizing. She texted me that it will be a happy hour type thing and said that we should buy the bride lingerie. First off, I’m not that close to the bride. Secondly, I wasn’t aware guests had to purchase gifts. Because funds are tight, I wasn’t planning on bringing a gift but now I feel obligated to do so since the organizer said so. What should I do?
Second, I am invited to a friend’s bridal shower. We aren’t close, I was surprised when she invited me to her wedding and didn’t even know at that point that she was even engaged. We hardly talk to one another but have mutual friends. I’m not able to make the shower because I’ll be at a wedding. Do I send a gift? I can only afford to get either the shower gift or a wedding gift, not both.
The wedding I’m a part of is also causing me a lot of stress. I’ve already invested a lot to be part of the wedding (which is out of town) and I don’t know what I’m doing, half the time I feel like I’m running around with my head cut off. Any stress free suggestions would be appreciated!!
