    @Skittles131:  I’d be happy with 1, but I’m not getting any 🙁

    Most of my friends have had a couple

    I had 3. My dear friend, my aunt/god mother and family and then DH’s work! We were soooo touched! I personally don’t feel there a number for you to adhere to but do what feels best for you!

    I had just one. My MIL wanted to have another one for me but I said no.

    @Skittles131:  It’s very rude to invite the same guests to more than one shower. Don’t do it. Either cancel the subsequent showers, have an entirely different guest list or change it to a lunch or some other non gift giving event.

    Also keep in mind that multiple parties celebrating the same wedding get tiresome very fast for repeat guests.

    I had one, and that was more than enough for me!

    I think I will be having three. FSIL is throwing me one for their side of the family, my MOH is throwing one for our side of the family and my close friends (she’s my cousin), and work has talked about doing a little something for me too.

    There’s no option for 0.  I live away from our familes and friends, so there won’t be one.  Plus we aren’t registering so even if I did live near everyone there wouldn’t be one anyway.

    I had 2 bridal showers and 2 baby showers.  It would have been too difficult for EVERYONE to come to one shower because of distance.  So we had one in one part of the area and rhe other in another area.

    @Skittles131:  I’m going to be having 2 showers (one in my hometown with family and friends, one where we live now with FI’s family and my local friends) and my bachelorette “party” (If it even counts…it will just be my sister, my cousin, and one BM in vegas…so nothing crazy)
