I am getting married 8 months from today (YAY!!!) for the 2nd time. My friends keep mentioning bridal showers & bachelorette weekends & frankly I am not feeling it. Been there, done that. I have zero interest in having another bridal shower, opening presents while people ooooooh and aaaaaah, etc, etc. I told my sister today that I want to have a champagne brunch with a waffle bar (YUM) at her house (she volunteered to host my bridal shower) and only invite my closest friends, 2 cousins, my Mom, my Aunt, and that's it. (Like 15 people altogether) I would like to go to a spa for massages, manis/pedis afterwards & that's it. My sister says my wish is her command but how do I avoid hurt feelings and all that with people I don't care to include? Should I be honest or blame my sister & say it was all a surprise? LOLOLOLOL!!!
Also, I decided on this invitation & as a favor I would like to give away champagne bottles that would have a tag with a cutesy message (possibly matching the invite) for each guest, a small box of chocolates & a personalized champagne glass. What do you think? Am I taking the fun out of things by taking over & not letting my friends plan for me?
I already hinted to my coworkers that I'd like to do Painting with a Twist with them, that way they won't feel bad about not being invited to champagne day. I really want to keep things simple & the general popular vote is that I should stop being ridiculous & just go all out.
