Yikes! I’d send an email to all of them and let them all know to stop talking to you about your shower. You don’t want to know anything about it, and it’s stressing you out since you’re randomly getting yelled at by everyone and you didn’t even do anything!!

Oh wowzer! That is pretty intense! Sorry you are dealing with so much drama so early in the process. I agree with the PP, just email all of them letting them know not to even bring up the shower in front of you because you appreciate the surprise they are doing for you, and don’t want to know any informaiton about it.

Good luck!!

thanks for posting. I’d seen so much wedding drama with maids over the years that now that I’m finally getting married, I’m having just one attendent. No shower, no bachelorette party, no matching dress junk, no drama.

My best advice in situations like this is to not engage, don’t call and don’t email – let your sister run the show and focus on what’s really important to you. Good Luck! 🙂

As hard as it was for me,, I decided to skip out on having a wedding party.  I have asked my sister to stand up for me as a witness/support.. and she’s accepted.  I’ll buy her dress/pay for hair & makeup as a gift to her b/c I know she’ll do so much for me (even though she won’t  be “required” to).

I agree with PP’s just send a mass email out letting them know not to ask you/talk to you at all about the parties due to you are getting accused of trying to ruin the surprise

The drama is not nessacery. I would send out an e-mail stated that I never inteneded for the drama to unfold and I am extremly happy for everything you girls are doing for me. i think you need to remove yourself from all things shower and just let them take care of it. if your sister or anyone ask you about it then just state that they contact your bridal party…


the comment in your post I didn’t like was “Well – maybe after the party when I see how much work you’ve put in, I will appreciate it.  But at this point, I know nothing so how can I appreciate what you’re doing!!??”


I think that statement is rude, I think you should be greatful no matter what they are doing for you and appericate the work they are currently doing. You can appericate that they are working hard to throw you a shower.
