I won’t feel guilty.  I loved the honor of throwing my twin sister’s bridal shower (she’d been asking for a Luau for our birthday for several years, so I decided to give her her own!).  Yes, it was expensive, but I knew one day she would return the favor.  Just like I will do for all my other bridesmaids when they get married.

As far as being center of attention, it doesn’t surround me in the slightest when it’s all people I love and know well.  The exception is some extended family who I didn’t want to invite, but my mom insisted when we were discussing the guest list.   Whatever, most live OOT so only a few are likely to show.

Try thinking about the individual people you will get to spend time with/talk to. I find that helps me. Instead of thinking “OMG, there are going to be 30 people there, and I’m the center of attention!” I try to think “Yay! I’ll get to talk to Aunt Jo, who lives in California.” Yes, you’ll be the focus when you’re unwrapping presents, but even then, people will be chatting with the girls they’re sitting with, and your attention will be on those closest to you. It will be fun–promise! (And definitely DON’T think about the people who have chosen not to be there! Let your focus be on everyone else showing up to give you love and support.”
