My Ss24 got engaged last September. We are very happy for him! His fiance is wonderful!! She has brought about changes in him that makes him a better, more thoughtful person.
They set a date of December 5, 2020. We put down a deposit for the rehearsal dinner. Then Covid hit.
We were hopeful that by December things would be better. It isn't looking like that is happening.
They haven't talked to us about their plans. What are they going to do if things are closed down, etc?
We got a save the date card for December 5, 2020 and I got an invitation to the bridal shower for August 16, 2020.
I am so stressed out about this!! I already bought the gift but I don't really want to go to an event with a bunch of people in a closed in space. I don't want to make them mad but I think we are going to have to talk to them. I know they won't want to reschedule and I don't want to be the person to rain on their parade. I seem to always have to be THAT person. Why, why, why??
I don't even know who or how many people they invited to the bridal shower. I know they invited my mom, mother-in-law and sister-in-laws.
After constulting with my doctor yesterday, I am going to advise my 79 year old mother that she should not go to this.
I really want to tell ALL of my family that I think they should not go. This includes Dh's mom, who has COPD and Dh's sister, who is a breast cancer survivor. Not to be mean, I really do want to go but it just doesn't make sense to me to risk it.
I'm sure Bm will be sooooo happy if my family and I don't go. That's fine. Let her. I just don't want there to be any hard feelings from Ss's future wife.
This all really stinks!!!!
