@jules28:  I can definitely relate. My shower isn’t scheduled until the end of July but I’ve already had quite a few people say they aren’t coming. I’m contemplating just canceling it since my Maid/Matron of Honor hasn’t really planned anything yet. 

Just try to see the bright side. Maybe the shower isn’t meeting your expectations but you will still be surrounded by women that love you and I’m sure you will have fun.

Lots of ladies on the boards had a similar experience. I blame it on summer just getting started.

Summer’s just getting started, and if you and your friends are in that 20-30 age range then there are probably  a crapload of weddings going on. Everyone has other stuff to do and 6 other weddings to go to.  Don’t let it get you down.

@jules28: Oh, my heart goes out to you. I haven’t had mine yet (still quite some time to go), but I know I would be feeling blue too. Maybe you can do someting really fun and unique for your shower that you wouldn’t be able to do with tons of people. I don’t know exactly what that would be, but I bet if you and your Maid/Matron of Honor thought about it, you could come up with something really amazing and special to do with the guests that are coming. Sorry I don’t have any suggestions, but I will keep thinking about it and post again if I come up with anything!

@jules28:  I had my Mother-In-Law, MIL’s friend, SIL, brother’s gf and my mom at my “bachelorette party” that was really just a sit down dinner for the girls. I didn’t have a bridal shower nor a wedding registry because my Darling Husband and I are very fussy about the amount of stuff we have in the house.

I’d say that’s less than 10 ๐Ÿ˜‰

@jules28:  I know the feeling.  I think *1* of my friends is coming.  The others have RSVPed no, because they out of town or are travelling for work or have other weddings to go to.  Someone on here told me that I have to remember that friends’ attendance is more important at the wedding than at the bridal shower.   My attendees will be most of my family and FI’s family – I will be having a small, intimate, family shower ๐Ÿ™‚  It is better than nothing! ๐Ÿ™‚

I was getting bummed out the other day because a lot of girls that told me they would be there started backing out.  I had a chat with my Maid/Matron of Honor and I’m fine now.  The fact remains that no matter how many people show it, it will still be fun!
