I am having some Bridal Shower woes! When I started planning my wedding... I specifically said I didn't want a bridal shower. Well, now it appears that I am going to be having a bridal shower.
My situation here is that my parents have been divorced just about all 22 years of my existence. Both of my parents have been happily remarried for 15+ years. I told my MOH that I wanted one big shower with both parts of my family & my Fi's family. It's just so much easier than three small ones.
My sister hinted to me that my mother is planning a shower at my grandmother's house for just her side of the family. This just irritates me because I already feel awkward when my families are together and this makes it so much worse. I just want everyone to be together for "two" days of my life and be happy about it. It's for me - not for them (I sound so selfish). How do I tell my Mom that I want one big shower, and not just three small ones. I feel it isn't fair, especially since I have two half sisters & they are both in the WP. One sister is from my mom & one is from my dad. It would be completely unfair if my sister's were not invited to one shower or the other. I hate to make my mother upset and I just want to make everyone happy - but this is my day. I just don't know how to tell her.
I need some help, anyone out there that had the same situation or something similar! I don't even want to think about what the wedding is going to be like.
