@MsGinkgo:  I’m not having one either. I see it as a bonus because I won’t have to play any stupid games 😛

@MsGinkgo:  For what it’s worth, I don’t think being sad about missing something that you enjoy doing makes you a brat or entitled. The fact that you didn’t even mention missing out on gifts is evidence enough. I’m sorry you don’t get to experience having your own shower!

I won’t have one either.  I live in Texas, my family and two bridesmaids are in Ontario, one bridesmaid in BC, FI family in Minnesota…  It would be fun but it’s not the end of the world.

Even without the geographical issues, I wouldn’t have a shower anyway.  We are having a destination wedding and not registering because I don’t think it is a appropriate to ask guests to pay for flights and hotels and then be like “oh hey, here are the presents I would like you to buy us!”

@MsGinkgo:  Maybe you can have one the day before the wedding?

I won’t have one and I don’t want one. But I saw some people doing that.

@MsGinkgo:  

@MrsPanda99:  Woah… neither of you are having showers? That makes me sad! I love you two and would totally throw you awesome showers if A) I knew you IRL B)we lived near each other and C) I wasn’t broke as hell. 😛

@afake79:  +1!

@MsGinkgo:  Maybe you could ask your mom to put together a “bridal tea” for the ladies the day before the wedding when people will already be in town? Sometime before the rehearsal dinner maybe?

So sorry, OP!

Can you have a last-minute bridal shower? I know of some girls who have them the day before their wedding… that might be a possibility.

I wanted a backyard wedding. We’re not doing that, but I plan on exacting my revenge by having lots of fun backyard parties in the future! It helps me to feel better about something I’m still a little bummed over. 🙂

@MsGinkgo:  Then play them with my sister. She would love to plan a shower 😛

@MexiPino:  I’m not because we are having such a small wedding. My sister really wants to plan one for me but no one is invited to the wedding except my parents! We consider it a local elopement with my parents as witnesses. It seems rude to ask people to buy me gifts if they aren’t even invited. I would totally be a good sport and play the stupid games otherwise 😛

Most bride’s want the parties and things that come along with getting married. I’d feel sad too, maybe as PP’s said you can have something the day or night before the wedding? I just went to an out of state wedding and we arranged to do a Bridal Shower brunch the day of the rehearsal. It took some coordinating but, it all went really well, we wanted our friend to have a shower and bach as she deserved, despite everyone living in a different state!
