I am the Matron of Honor in a wedding in May. The bride told me to plan a couples shower. I planned one at an Art Gallery/Coffee Shop with a theme of wine and cheese.
The bride didn't like the ide for the following reasons:
1. The Art Gallery was the same location as my rehearsal dinner a year ago. (My Response: only 4 people know that, anyways who cares its four walls that I'm using as a location because I can afford it: $75 an hour and I can bring in my own food)
2. No one that is coming likes wine. My response: Seriously no one like juice? I chose the wine theme because you and your fiance make wine together, to which she replied that he doesn't even like wine. Again, who doesn't like grapes and juice. So I told her I'd have beer there too.
3. Last reason: The Art Gallerys is pieced off and we are worried not everyone will be able to watch us open gifts. My response: thats not true and what man wants to watch a bride and groom open gifts anyway.
My point in all of this was that she told me to plan her a couples bridal shower and I did. She hates the idea and got another bridesmaid to pick a different location. So I assumed I no longer had to plan it. When I told her, "let me know if I need to bring anything," she was appalled and said, "You aren't going to plan it anymore!?"
I just can't believe this bride. If she wants a specific type of shower at a specific location.... then she needs to plan it.
A shower is a gift. It costs money, time, and right now she's acting extremely ungrateful.
Am I way off base here?
