Today was Alicia’s Bridal shower. I had to get up at 7:30am, and I wanted to be out in Bridgeville, by 8:30am, which was the time we agreed upon. Naturally, I was there earlier even before Alicia’s mom. Charlie’s (Alicia dad) car broke down, and the battery needed jumped, hence the reason why they were late. I give up. When I first saw the room that the shower was going to take place in, I almost vomited in my mouth. It looked nothing like a bridal shower. The divider in the room was broken, so the agreement was they could have the entire room, but they chose to set up the buffet, in one area to divide the room.
As soon as wait staff showed up, I explained to them that this room was not complete, and they were to have the whole room, due to the divider not working. I kicked off my heels and got to work. I had them set up more tables, one for gifts, hats, and teapots, as well as a head table. I should have been an event planner, and then I would not have any weekends to myself, but I was good at giving orders.
The shower was beautiful, but I feel I did as much as a matron of honor should have done, and more. Alicia had a blast. I am glad. Andrew showed up at the end to help with gifts, but they ended up not needing his help anyway. So it was a total waste of time for him to be there, but he did help me carry things out. He is the best. I could not wait to get home. I was so tired.
