Weddings Make People Crazy

A friend of mine shared this email with me today--a wedding she is a bridesmaid in. Therapists could really find a niche market in weddings. I decided to highlight what I consider to be the real gems of the email. Grammar and punctuation have not been corrected even though it looks terrible. Names have been removed to protect the innocent bridesmaids.

Hello Bridesmaids 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6:

The Bride's bridal shower is around the corner, so here is a compose list of what everyone should be doing/ bringing the day of the shower. Under your names there will be duties for the bridal party, you can make it or buy it which ever you like, but please make enough for everyone since there will be approximately 50 guest at the Bride's bridal shower. If you don’t like the item(s) you are assigned, feel free to trade with someone else. You can bring all your food on a disposal tray and we will put it on nice platters when you get here. If you have stuff you want to drop by the night before, feel free to do so.

There will be a theme to the Bride's bridal shower, it's gonna be a tea party style shower, color theme will be mainly black and white with a hint of red. Please make your food to as close to the pictures as possible ( I will enclose pics) With that said, the bridal party will be wearing black and White, or Black and the Bride will be wearing white and the all the guest can wear whatever.

Since the bridal shower starts at 12noon, I would like everyone with their food no later than 8am that morning
, so we can set up and put everything together.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks everyone, see you guys there early morning on the date of the shower.
