I apologize for the lengthy post.. but I need some advice!
I'm getting married in the UK in October (fiancé is Welsh!) and I have two lovely bridesmaids who have taken on the important task of planning my bachelorette party, or 'hen party' as they call it over here.
Basically, long story short, the girls have planned a nice bachelorette party for me and it's all a complete surprise! Well it was supposed to be anyway until I accidentally overheard my fiancé talking about it. I didn't find out much but what I did find out was an absolute deal breaker for me. When the girls asked me early on what I wanted to do, I begged (and I literally mean begged) them for a weekend of fun activities. Because that's what my friends have done back home in Texas. Weekend means two days, right? So I thought! I found out that it's one night of going out and drinking with a bunch of the other girlfriends I've made here. When I found out, I was so upset I might as well have been on an episode of Bridezillas!
Apparently, they've planned a few other events as well.. including my bridal shower! Which I have no objections to.. but I'd like a hand in the planning somehow. But all of this has caused major drama between them and my fiancé as I secretly asked him to do the dirty work of trying to have them add another day to the weekend! I don't want to sound ungrateful because I'm really not.. but it's gotten to the point to where I didn't even get to pick out what I wanted to wear! It feels as though what I wanted never got listened to. Especially when you're living in a new country and you've been planning your dream bachelorette party since you were 16.
It was tough to listen to my fiancé and his guys last night.. they were all talking about taking him on a nice weekend away. My girlfriends back home don't even get to be a part of this! Am I right to feel upset? Or am I just acting like a crazy bridezilla?
