I’m living in Chicago, planning the wedding in Michigan. We have a small guest list, small wedding party- I wasn’t planning on doing any additional parties. No bridal shower, batchelor/bachelorette, nothing but the wedding. It just seems to make more sense to me, and sounds like it would be a lot easier for everyone involved.
Is anyone else forgoing the extra parties?

I didn’t have any of the extra parties. It sort of makes me sad that I didn’t but oh well.

We are going to have the bachelor/ertte party, but probably a combined one of sorts. We had some friends who did this. Everyone went to dinner together. Then the guys did their thing and the girls did theirs. We loved it.
I am hoping not to have a shower. I don’t like going to showers, baby, wedding, etc. …never have. But that is just me. If you do want any additional parties, hopefully everyone respects your wishes.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Was it logistics, or a choice you made? I am kind of worried I’ll be sad I decided against it.

@IlsaLund: Mostly logistics. We lived far away from the majority of our friends so I would have only had a few people at the parties.

I am skipping all of the above. I just don’t want them. I am taking the 2 BMs and our moms out to lunch.
