The Bridal Shower

As you know, this blog is about married life in Los Angeles — with a perpetual flow of coffee. However, those of you that have been reading closely will know that the wedding is actually just ahead of us. With that in mind, the wife-elect (fiancée) had her bridal shower this weekend, and I was there!

I had never attended a bridal shower before. Heck, I did not even know men were allowed to these events! I suppose I was thinking of the bachelorette party. Regardless, I was happy to be invited, and so were my parents. It was an interesting experience, not just because it was co-ed, but also because it was diverse.

Perhaps it is Los Angeles, perhaps it is the times, but my future in-laws’ house was filled with people from all walks of life, which was great! Among the invitees were Judaeo-Christian conservatives, ultraconservatives, classical-liberals, actual liberals, all sexual orientations, Whites, Latinos, Asian, and Black Americans between the ages of 20 and 70 years old.

I personally love these environments, specially when they yield a healthy exchange of dissenting ideas that turn into debates. Alas, the woman of the hour avoids this sort of confrontations at all costs. I guess opposites really do attract — and no, the irony is not lost on me.

At the end of the 2 hour shower-turned-5 hour family get-together, we were exhausted (I literally feel asleep for a few minutes likely due to the Chinese food-induced comma), but glad that we attended. It was fun, and in case you were curious, I did indeed have a cup of coffee in hand the whole time. Cheers!

Tell me, have you ever attended a bridal shower? Do you like debating or do you avoid confrontations like the plague? Does Chinese food make you sleepy, or is it just me?

  1. I’ve been to a few bridal showers, three of which for my sister in laws. 🙂 I DO love Chinese! I usually only get it when I hang out with my aunt, however, so that is kinda sad lol. Aaand, I really couldn’t debate for the life of me. I’m super shy and introverted when it comes to confronting people or starting debates. 🙂

  2. Though marriages in India and are a big affair and there are many pre marriage functions; none of them are called Bridal Shower! But yes, I love this multi culture and friends and relatives from all walks of lives functions.
    All the best for your wedding. May you have your best coffee ever 😂☕️

  3. Hi Mr R, good post, never been to a bridal shower, I love Chinese food and it doesn’t make me sleepy and I try to avoid debates whenever possible, especially in a crowd, one on one is not so bad. And I do like COFFEE!!! It’s one of the main food staples. Have a great day!😃😺
