Am I being unreasonable about my hen do?
Hi everyone, so my hen do is in a couple of weeks and the more I think about it the more upset I feel, I just want to cry at the moment and feel so embarrassed!
Firstly I've organised it myself as my best mate who is the MOH kept saying she'll look into it but never did, I was kind of ok about this as I would rather know what we're doing, but I think my other mates are wondering why I'm having to do it myself. I have a few close friends rather than a large group so people dropping out really makes a difference to the numbers, and I wouldn't invite them if they didn't mean a lot to me.
I've arranged for my make up artist to do a 3 hours session at my house in the afternoon with us, then we're going for a meal and drinks in the evening, so nothing too costly. But then my sister in law who is my other bridesmaid has told my OH that she's not coming (after initially telling me she would) because she's doing something with her mates. She didn't even tell me in person or apologise! I told her to begin with that its a set number of people as its an organised activity so I need to know if she's coming, and can't believe the way she has gone about dropping out! Then I have another friend who I invited a while back and she said she would get back to me about it, I didn't hear anything and wondered if the cost was an issue, so when my sister in law dropped out, I text her again saying theres a free space, its only for a couple of hours in the afternoon at my house and she's welcome to bring her baby (she said she's not sure about leaving her baby as she cries when she leaves the room). This friend is still saying 'I'll see how the baby is' and making out that she'll be coming, but I just know she doesn't want to. I would rather her just tell me than keep dragging it out! I feel so embarrassed that I can't even get my mate to come over for a few hours for free in the afternoon and everything else on top is just adding to my anger! Can people not just get out of their comfort zone and make an effort for a once in a lifetime occasion? I would do it for them!
