I had two showers, one for friends, one for family. Each about 20-25 people attending. It was pretty busy but really fun! It goes by REALLY fast though so enjoy it!!

I’m having one so far but FI’s aunt has hinted that she wants to throw me one too. In addition to that, I will also be having a bach party, FI’s cousins are throwing us some kind of party, and FI’s aunt (same as above) has already thrown us an engagement party. It is soooo overwhelming! Here’s my breakdown:
1. Engagement party thrown by FI’s aunts–about 35 invited
2. Bridal shower thrown by MOH–30 invited
3. Possible bridal shower thrown by FI’s aunt–don’t know yet how many people
4. Possible wedding shower/party thrown by FI’s cousins for both of us–don’t know yet how many people
5. Bachelorette party thrown by MOH–7 invited

One shower for all ladies invited to the wedding (approx. 56 to be invited). Will most likely have the bachelorette party that night since everyone is spread out and it will cut down on an extra trip!

Ok so i’m not so abnormal after all! Don’t get me wrong, i’m very thankful. And its not like I have to do the work to put on the showers except there will be alot of thank you notes to write!

I’m not having one! I absolutely do not want one and I told both my MOH and my Mother that and I sure hope they listen. My SIL had two, though. She had one with co-workers in California and one with family/friends back in Michigan. I think 3 showers in your situation makes a lot of sense with all the different people from different sides of the family, etc. It doesn’t sound crazy at all!

i will have 2.
one put on by my MOH (family lives out of town), approx 30 people invited and another one put on by my coworkers (tea party), approx 10 people invited.
one of my co-workers wives approached me with the idea and she was so excited — how could i say no? i think it will be fun!

One. Both of our families and all of our friends are local so my bridesmaids are organizing one shower that will include everyone (approx. 35 women). FI and I work for the same company so our departments may organize something but I don’t really consider a break room soiree an actual shower.

Am I the only one who doesn’t know about bridal showers yet? Nobody has mentioned throwing one for me. My mom lives in a different state, so I doubt she will throw one. My FMIL may, but she tends to be “busy” with other things in life. I have 3 bridesmaids where I live, so maybe they will throw one. But my MOH’s all live in different states as well. The only thing I know I’m having for sure is bachelorette party (because I will throw that myself if nobody wants to host, baha) and a bridesmaids luncheon that my aunt wants to throw the Thursday/Friday before I get married. But that is for my BMs, I’m so excited 🙂 🙂 🙂

I’m having 2. My DC-based MOH is throwing me one with 35 women (friends and co-workers) invited, and my Boston-based MOH is also throwing me one with 45 women (family and childhood friends) invited. I’m not sure I could handle more then 2, but if it’s something others want to do for you, I don’t find anything wrong with having multiple showers.

I have two as well: one in Fi’s hometown thrown by his mom and her friends; one in my hometown thrown by my bridesmaids. The first one is tomorrow…I can’t believe I’m a little nervous! It just seems like a whole lot of attention! 9probably should have seen it coming with planning the wedding in all….) 🙂
