I am getting married at the end of September. My sister is my MOH but she is in Africa until 2 weeks before my wedding. My other 2 bridesmaids are in the Milwaukee area. I know that all the weddings I've gone to have had a bridal shower & a bachelorette party, which is the "norm" and I've always wanted that.
With my MOH being in Africa, it is kind of hard for her to plan my bridal shower. I know she has tried to get information from me on my favorite places, things to do, etc but whenever I email her to see where things are at with the planning, I hear nothing back. I only ask her what's going on because I know summer is a busy time for people and wants to be considerate of other people so they don't have to rearrange their schedule for me if there is to be a bridal shower. My other 2 bridesmaids seem to want to have nothing to do with planning a bridal shower (or tell me that things for the wedding shouldn't be planned and things should just happen spontaneously because they are supposed to be fun) - and it honestly kind of hurts to know that I may not get a bridal shower (I know, to some poeple it may sound a little shallow). I have hinted somewhat when I provided a list of people to invite to the bridal shower & bachelorette party that it would be nice/fun to have one but still I haven't heard anything.
Is there anything that I can do to push things along with coming off as shallow or just leave it alone and hope that something comes together but anticipate that it may not? It's gotten to the point when I have kind of come to terms that I won't have a bridal shower/bachelorette party before the wedding.
