It's a "shower" not a "reunion" people!!!
Posted 11 April 2008 - 08:15 AM
So one of my BFFs is throwing me a shower in LA (used to live there), and my beloved friends, mom, sis, and stepmom are coming in from all over the country to attend.
We also invited two cousins from my mom's side (one of whom I love and one who I only vaguely remember) because they are in central California - they aren't invited to the wedding, but my mom thought it was important to invite them. Plus, she wanted some of her contemporaries there.
Now, I get a phone call from the hostess - apparently everyone is all excited that me, my mom and my sis will all be in the area. My mom's cousin (the one I think I might remember) wants to bring her two daughters (my age), and my cousin wants to bring (brace yourselves...) my uncle. To. My. Shower.
I don't even know the names of the daughters, and what the hell is my cousin thinking wanting to bring my uncle!!!! I just have no idea what these people are thinking!!! Who invites extras to a shower being thrown by someone they don't even know?!?!?!
But, it's all under control - I called my mom and told her to reign in her family. That there was NO WAY my uncle was attending my (hello!) bridal shower, and that I really wasn't comfortable asking my dear friend to host two extra people that I'VE NEVER MET!
So, she's going to arrange a family dinner one night, and the shower will go on without men and strangers.
Anyone know what it costs to buy a clue these days? Sheesh!!!
Happily married since 2008
