    oooohhhh I hope not!  Attending our destination wedding will be gift enough… we don’t want gifts at all, definately no shower!

    I would imagine that the ladies of the groom’s family will want to throw one for me. I’m pretty indifferent about it. I’d be fun of course, but I wouldn’t expect them to or anything.

    I know my girlfriends are planing something… don’t know what yet. But I’ve made it clear that I do not expect any gifts.

    My MOH is all into planning our shower.  How could I say no?

    I agree. Really, the reason to have a wedding and not elope to because we want to share the love with our loved ones. Why shouldn’t they want to have one more party to share the joy?

    One of my girlfriends asked me about hostessing a shower and I suggested a couples shower-low key and fun for everyone. It’s more about the celebration than the gifts. Since then, two other girlfriends are in on it and kids are now included, so it will be family friendly as well. I think at work, my hallmates will probably do something fun like take me out for fajitas or a simple gift card shower with cake & punch. Any shower is more than expected. I didn’t live where I live now (I taught in another school system also) when I got married the first time and I was at another school when I had my twins. I think if I had been showered once before for my first wedding and also for the arrival of the babies, then it would be a different story. But you  know, we teachers are wedding kinds of people-a gal I work with has had 4 babies during the time she has been at her school and the first shower was tradtional, second shower was gift cards, and third & fourth showers were diapers. We like to "party"! We’re a social bunch! 🙂

    I voted no, but friends offered, and we asked that it be post wedding instead. Infact, if we have our house, we might host it ourselves, since it’s an out of town wedding and few are invited.

    I vote yes — family thinks differently — They know I do not want a suprise shower — did not want it the first time and they knew how upset I was by it.  So I am assuming no shower which is my mothers new key word.
