So I think I’m going to have a lot of showers and I am worried about it. I don’t know why it worries me though. Here’s the list of the showers I think/know will take place:
-couples shower hosted by my family
-couples shower hosted by his family
-bridal shower hosted by co-workers
-bridal shower hosted by friends from church
-bridal shower hosted by friends (non church)
Ahhhhh! Is that a lot of showers? This doesn’t include the bachelorette party. I could maybe combine the bridal shower from my non church friends with the bachelorette.
How many showers are you having? or How many did you have?

Oh my goodness! I think that is a ton! How nice that you have all those people who want to thorw you showers. If the guest list overlaps at all, I would say that becomes too much.
I am having….ZERO showers! People have offered to throw me one or two but I politely declined. I hate being the center of attention! We also already have our home together and don’t need more stuff!!

It’s a lot, but it’s okay as long 1: the guest lists don’t overlap and 2: all the guests are invited to the wedding.

i agree with the others, as long as the guests aren’t going to multiple showers, it’s fine. i’m having one shower. my family/bridal party is hosting it and inviting my friends and my fi’s friends and family.

It is a lot but it’s okay as long as the guest lists don’t overlap and everyone comes to the wedding like cheerful said. Lucky, we didn’t have any

do your families live close together? If so, that’s too many, IMO. I think 1 is good, 2 is pushing it, but more than that is crazy. I can see throwing in a church one or a work one, since they’re certain groups of people, but people at showers are also invited to the wedding, so you would think that they’d be aquainted soon anyway. Combine some of those suckers!

That is a lot of showers. I am having 3 that I know of –
One for my family and friends (2 hours away)
One for FI’s family
One for the church

I agree it is fine as long as the guests aren’t all invited to all of them. I would invite your parents to all and your bridal party but let the bridal party know they aren’t expected at each.

Lucky you! I don’t get any showers 🙁 I think it should be fine, just be really careful with the guest lists – I would not appreciate being invited to several showers for the same person! If you do want to combine some, could your families throw one big shower?

As long as the guest lists do not overlap and all the guests are invited to the wedding you are fine. Do what works for you. I feel like some people on the boards tend to be really judgmental. I’m having four because that is what worked for all our different family and friends. And that was with me turning down shower offers. Nothing is “over the top” if it works for you, your family and your guests. I frankly think it is nicer to have multiple smaller showers than one huge one. I recently had a shower with 22 guests that lasted 4 hours and I barely had a chance to adequately talk to everyone and that made me really sad. Showers are structured – there is eating then games and then presents – as the bride all of that really cuts into your chance to spend time with your guests (which is the most important part of the event!).
You are very fortunate to have so many people want to celebrate you! Enjoy it 🙂

I think you’re a lucky girl, and you are surrounded by people that care about you and your FI. I think you shouldn’t worry about it and just enjoy this time in your planning.

I agree with other posters who said that it’s a lot of showers, but it’s OK as long as the guest lists don’t overlap.
