I wasn't really sure what board to post this on, so admin can feel free to move it.
My bridal shower is next Saturday in Ohio (FI and I are leaving TX on Thursday to fly up there for Christmas and that). My MOH, who is also my brother's GF (soon to be fiance... He has the ring!
), is getting all bent out of shape over who is making the card box for the shower. My mom and MOH are the ones hosting the shower.
My MOH made a lovely card box to set on the gift table at the shower. My parents' next door neighbor (who has designed most of my ceremony decorations) said she was going to have her daughter, Anna, make a card box for the wedding. In my mind, there was no issue. One box for the shower, a different one for the wedding. (I don't even care if there is a card box, but I appreciate the gesture) The neighbor is very pushy and my MOH got very bent out of shape calling me to complain about it. It's worth noting my MOH gets bent out of shape fairly easy.
What makes this a big dilemma is that Anna (who 3 years younger than me), has some sort of severe developmental disability and has the mental capability of a 6-8 year old. However, she makes absolutely BEAUTIFUL christening gowns, first communion dresses and quilts with direction from her mother. I have no doubt that the box she made is beautiful as well.
I love Anna like a little sister and don't want to hurt her feelings, especially since she might not fully understand. I'm thinking it will be easier to tell MOH I'll use hers for the actual wedding reception. even though I know she'll still be upset.
Do you think that's the right thing to do?
