@MsGinkgo:  I was SO sad about not having a bridal shower. Not about the gifts or anything, just that I wasn’t going to get to have the experience!

I personally wouldn’t attend a shower more than a month or two before the wedding.  This early wouldn’t really be a shower.

I didn’t do a shower before my first wedding and honestly, I wasn’t that upset about it.  I was somewhat disappointed to miss out on the tradition but since nobody stepped up to throw me one, I didn’t get one.  This time around my FMIL is planning to throw me one and I have begged her to keep it simple (a get together at her house with brunch and mimosas.)

Why don’t you host a bridal brunch for your female friends and family when you go back home?  You can’t throw yourself a shower but you would at least get the party and attention that comes with a shower.

I’m not sure if I will have one, but I wouldn’t really care either way. Then again, I also don’t care about an actual wedding ceremony when I am already legally married. The honeymoon will be fun though! I can understand being disappointed about something you really want though 🙁
