Me too!  I only have two girls in my bridal party and I didn’t want anyone to be saddled with the costs on their own.  Also got really stressed out trying to manage time with studying, and my friends are scattered all over the country as well. 🙁

We actually don’t do them here at all. Are you having a bachelorette do?

No shower for me!  And I chose it that way!  I am not a fan of showers, personally…

Everyone is mad at me for politely declining their offers but I truly hate showers!

No shower for me. I dont want one. It just seems like an unnecessary cost for people who are already spending a lot on your wedding. All of these people will be buying you wedding gifts and the BM’s will be buying dresses, shoes, hair etc. I would feel uncomfortable asking people to buy me more stuff.

And can anybody answer my ignorant question, but what is a Bridal Shower for? What is the purpose?

Thanks! I never was sure of the tradition behind bridal showers.

I didn’t have any of the normal pre stuff because my friends were living far away from me.

I won’t be having a shower or a bachelorette party because my entire bridal party and family are all 7 1/2 hours away. His family could give me one, but it’s not the same. I need someone there and it’s just impossible to pull off.

I don’t really want one.  I just don’t like being in front of people unless everyone has had a few.  Just saying.  And, only one person in my BP is in the state!

We skipped the bridal shower too, but it’s not really a tradition in my family.  I don’t miss it.  I am having a bachelorette party and am pretty excited about that though!

No shower or bachelorette for me either. I only have one person in my bridal party. But I’ll probably go out with some of my girlfriends the night before the wedding for some casual drinks and things.

No shower here either.  All of the family and friends are from out of state.  Thought it would be fun and I am kind of bummed.

I’m not having one, and I have to say, it kinda bums me out.  I just had a fun bachelorette weekend in Miami with my girls, so I know I should be really happy with that.  Just a little part of me feels sad that no one thought to plan a shower for me… now it’s too late because I literally have no more free weekend days until the wedding.  Frown
