    @jlc3:  I dont think it is weird at all. Your still getting married. It maybe the only way some people will be able to celebrate with you

    No! not at all!! Showers are one of the best parts of being a bride! You get to be doted over and those that can’t make the trip can still celebrate with you!

    I don’t think it’s weird as long as someone is hosting the shower for you and the only people invited are those that were also invited to the wedding.

    @jlc3:  at the end of the day it is your special day and you can do whatever you want! Your bridesmaid and aunt will get over it if you decide you don’t want to have one… They love you and will be happy with whatever you want!

    @jlc3:  It is fine, just only invite those who are invited to the wedding! 🙂

    @jlc3:  I had a destination wedding and had a shower. My mom and aunt threw it for me and it was nice to be able to celebrate with those that couldnt make it to the wedding

    @jlc3:  Both my sisters did bridal showers before their DW. It was a good way for family to get together and celebrate, even if they couldn’t afford to go to the wedding. A nice way to do it is do a “Jack and Jill” style, so couples can come. We had a lot of fun doing it that way! I would just stress to your bridal party NOT to get you a present, since they’re already paying so much just to attend your wedding.
