I’m not even really having a bridal shower because everyone is so scattered all over the US.

My mom is hosting an 8 person (including me) ladies luncheon. It’ll all be women my mom/FMILs age. None of my BMs and no relatives other than my mom.

It’ll be nice, but I am a little sad to miss out on a true bridal shower complete with games, etc.

I’m having an intimate shower w/ less than 10ppl.  Since our wedding is 50ppl max and is just family and a few close friends, I’m only inviting ladies that have been invited to the wedding.  It will be @ a spa and we’ll have a light lunch.   Everyone knows that I’m the Spa Lady so it makes sense.

You should not ask people to pay their own way at a shower.  A shower is a mandatory gift giving occasion and it is not appropriate to get a gift and still have to pay to play so to speak.

You also shouldn’t be organizing anything to do with the shower.  If someone offers to host a shower for you, you should expect that they will host a party in their price range, be that cake and punch or a full meal.

I think a small shower is best.  I don’t like the very large showers.  It really should be the nearest and dearest.

I had a small shower, oly 4 of my friends showed up and my immediate family and my fiances mother and sister. None of my relatives or his relatives came. I was quite depressed and hurt because people couldnt make time to attend. I had about 6 people actually facebook me or call me the day of the shower sayig they weren’t comig. I would of been more understand if our family and friends lived far away, but the farest away is 2 hours. And these people come to my home city just to shop, but couldnt make time to come to my shower. With that said we still had a lovely shower, we planned a few games, had some yummy food. Which was supplied by my mom ad I. I actually had help plan , make food ad decorations. Because my three sisters didnt have enough time or money to help. I am still very thankful to everyone who came and we all had fun. But this whole weddings has been nothing but tears and hurt feelings. Ive realised theres alot of friends and family that I can not count on. But Im still trying to look on the bright side and be thankful for the few people in my life that want to help and be there for us.
