Someone wants to host one and invite (female) members of his family I haven’t met before. I’m a pretty shy person and I feel a little uncomfortable. Is that awkward or am I just being silly?

Oooo….I can see how that might be uncomfortable with family members! Awkward!!! Perhaps telling FMIL that you’re not into anything too racy (even if you are, you may not want to open these gifts in front of people!) and maybe give some suggestions of pajamas, nightgowns, robes, camisoles, etc.
I went to a shower years ago in which the bride was very modest. It was requested directly on the invitation that nothing too revealing be given as to “not embarrass the bride”. She still got some pretty lingerie, but nothing like crotchless, edible underpants!

I would also think it was awkward. My mil bought me some lingerie for my shower, and like I said, awkward. But then again, she has really good taste and got me some cute stuff, so I’m glad she did!

I’m the same way and I was totally against having any lingerie given to me at my bridal shower. I’m shy and I would be so embarrassed to hold up lingerie in front of my family for them to ooh and ah at. I included where we were registered with the shower invites and asked my mom and mil to tell people to get me something off of registry. I actually go into a little argument with my mil about this shower because I asked her not to give me lingerie and she stated she still was. I think that since this event is about me, I should have my way, lol. She has already been married and has known me for a couple of years and knows how shy I am. I would rather buy my own lingerie and get gifts that I know I would use without hesitation. So make sure you speak your mind so you will not be embarrassed that day.

I agree about it being awkward!
When my MOH & BM were planning my shower with the help of my mom, and aunt… I told them specifically I DO NOT want a lingerie shower. For one, it’s awkward and two, I rarely wear lingerie so it would be a total waste.

I just realizes that I am having a personal shower, and I am so small, that I am worried that things won’t fit….:(:

i wouldnt feel akward but it is wierd that you wont know ppl at your shower. Your friend probably just wants more ppl there for a festive party

I think you should make your feelings on the subject crystal clear, it is your shower and it should be what you want.
