Don’t cry ๐Ÿ™ How many people were invited?  Are people backing out because of weather related issues? 

Maybe a lot of people will send gifts…Honestly I think no matter how many people show up or not you will end up having a really nice time.  Plus you are having another shower in Ohio!! Thats great.  Some people don’t even get to have a shower!

Smile girl! On the bright side, there wouldn’t be a shower if you didn’t fall in love with the man of your dreams!! Be happy about that!!

((hugs)) I am so sorry that you have to go through that!  I’m sure your friends and family would love to be there, and no matter what you have the one in Ohio to look forward to!

A few of my BMs said they were going to throw me a scrap booking shower and I was SO excited for it!  Well…wedding is next weekend and no shower ๐Ÿ™ I’m bummed because I’m the first of our friends to get married and I feel like I’m missing out because of it.  For my cousin’s wedding 7 years ago (I was a BM) I went to THREE showers.  Maybe I’m a tad jealous, but her side of the family didn’t throw me one at all; they’ve hardly acknowledged the engagement. 

We can always do a WB shower tomorrow for you!  The Bee did that with a bachelorette party a few weeks ago and it was really cute!!  Keep us posted.

Not a lot of people were able to make it to my bridal shower, but it just made me really appreciate the people that could make it.  I felt honoured to have them there and we all had a great time.  Hope it works out better than expect =)

Trust me, it’s not about the # of people in the room, it’s about the ones that come to support you. Even if it’s just had a handful of people, it will be a fun, intimate shower and honestly, those are a million times more fun than huge showers.

I know how you feel – half the people the RSVP’d for my bachelorette party were no-shows or cancelled that day. We had 5 people (counting me) and we ended up sitting and talking to a waiter at the restaurant we went to for THREE hours. Never went to the bars, I had 2 drinks the whole night, and it was just kind of dumb. Definitely not the fun, rowdy night I had in mind.

Just try to have the best time possible at your shower and you could always try inviting some of the ‘no’ responses to the shower in Ohio if they are people that you really wanted to attend.

My shower was a few weeks ago and 15 people didn’t show up… I was really upset and it was almost embarrassing. I got comments like “oh people will be coming in any time now” but honestly it was beautiful and I knew that the people who were there truly wanted to be there :).

I hear ya. I am getting married in 15 days and am not having a shower. Many of my friends cannot make it. I only have two friends here and one is going to be attending another wedding in LA. You have another shower in Ohio! That is awesome and so are you. You are marrying the love of your life and that is all that matters!
