Today was my bridal shower and I had been looking forward to it for a long time. This was my one and only opportunity to ever have a bridal shower. My bridesmaids did a wonderful job with the decorations and the food. I enjoyed the party and really appreciated the gifts. However, I was highly disappointed with the turnout. Of the 60+ people invited, only 15 people (not counting my 3 bridesmaids) showed up. Last night we had severe thunderstorms that left a lot of the surrounding area without power. Needless to say, it put a huge damper on my shower. On top of all this, my FMIL and FSIL decided a few days ago before the storm ever happened that they weren't going to attend because the only person they would know would be my mom. This really hurt my feelings, especially since I helped plan and host my FSIL's baby shower last summer.
Maybe I'm wrong to be so upset about all of this, but the day meant so much to me and it wasn't at all what I'd hoped for. Sorry for the rant ladies, I just needed to vent.
