My bridal shower is next weekend and there were 53 women on the guest list but only half are coming. I realize that it is the summer and a lot of people have trips planned, however some really close people RSVP'd "no."
For example, my aunt and my grandmother are not coming but they live in other states. One of my friends just had a baby a month ago and doesn't want to leave the baby so soon. I really got upset when my BF/MOH's sister and mother RSVP'd "no." I have been friends with her since childhood therefore I am really close to all of them. I aked my MOH why and she said that they just didn't really want to go and she told them it wasn't a big deal.
I guess my feelings are just hurt. I always try to go to other's shower/parties unless I have something else really important going on.
Did anyone else have this problem or feel this way?
