Where the eff are your manners, girl?!
I feel strange about this as I have never been one to expect a present, ever. Like, not even from my mom or significant other on any birthday or Christmas.
I'm a bridesmaid, surprise surprise that it has to be about this, living on the other side of the country from the wedding. The wedding was last week where I dropped an unholy amount to fly out there for the week to help, where I wore a really ugly dress that was way too much money, where I gave an "envelope" gift as they asked for no boxed gifts, where I walked the walk, talked the talk, etc. You get the point.
The Bridesmaids, who all had to travel in from either out of state or a long car ride away, who all supported her through her family bullsh*t, who all threw her a shower ($), threw her a raging bachelorette ($$), did not receive a present. Like not a one. Not even a token card or heartfelt thank you at the rehearsal.
Now, being someone who ALWAYS writes thank you cards, this unnerved me just a tad but I feel guilty feeling so. We are all short on money and presents for 7 maids is pricey. But for me it wasn't the item, but it was the thought that wasn't there, the token of appreciation. What do you think ESB, am I out of line for feeling this way? I feel sort of stupid bringing it up to her but still, a part of me wants to call her up and say "Where the eff are your manners, girl?!"
Bridesmaid who a) subconsciously loves presents or b) just wants a damn thank you
You are not out of line. That sucks. The bride should have given you a stupid thank you gift.
But. There is NO GOOD REASON to call and tell her off.
Be the bigger person and let it go.
