What is the etiquette here?
I am not up on vow renewals at all, so maybe you ladies could put some light on this situation for me?
A friend of mine is planning a vow renewal/anniversary party for their 5 year. I am all about vow renewals and celebrating love and all that it entails, so I am excited for her! Today she called and started talking about a bridal shower. It kind of caught me off guard, I didn't think it was something that was done. The more the conversation went on for a while I realized she is planning a full blown extravaganza. She is talking rehearsal dinners, showers, the whole 9 yards. It kind of rubbed me the wrong way because we just did all of this 4 years ago for her. She had a wedding and all that comes with a wedding. I've never participated in a vow renewal, so I am pretty clueless, but is this typical??? I feel like she wants a do over. And she is allowed to do that, but my wallet is already anticipating this being pricey for me, again!
