We don’t get invited to weddings very often – we usually work them. But from time to time, we do go to a wedding as a guest. We actually have three all coming up that I am looking forward to attending.
The one bride’s wedding is coming in a few months and her main goal is to not have stress and everything be very relaxed. Whew! We already booked our hotel room and we are going a day early for a mini-vacation as we often do for weddings – working or friends!
Well, I’ve been getting emails and phone calls like crazy – they are planning a surprise shower on Friday morning and a surprise bachelorette party on Friday after the rehearsal! I am not even the bride, and these things are giving ME a panic attack. I remember how crazy things were the day before our wedding. The last thing I would have wanted is a surprise anything. I am not really a surprise kind of girl anyway. Every surprise party we attend I feel like the guest of honor is “late” to their own party – and they have missed out on the first hour of drinking and partying.
Well, today the bride mentioned how she is going to the spa Friday morning just to relax. As with many of these resorts, once you use the spa you can then go use the pool, so she wants to relax by the pool after. She invited a bunch of us to join her and I thought it sounded awesome! But no – the surprise party gang has decided that they are going to cancel her spa appointment and pull her away for her surprise party as she walks to the spa. The horror! I would be so irritated!
I know these women have good intentions but I have to wonder if any of them remember their wedding day and the day before. Mine was almost 5 years ago and as I mentioned above – I still have panic attacks just thinking about it!
Okay, that was my rant for the blog. I just had to get that off my chest!
