I was a wreck for mine!! I was shaking in the morning, and I couldn’t eat anything. In fact, I’m convinced that I wouldn’t have survived it if my FI (now DH) hadn’t been there the whole time with me. Turns out my nerves were hightened by the fact that I was surprisingly getting my period that day (yep, in the middle of my shower), but it wasn’t terrible! You’ll get through it. The people that will be there are people that love you! It’ll be fine!

YES!  My shower was last weekend and I got super nervous last minute.  Just try to relax.  It was actually very comforting for me to tell myself everyone there loves me & is happy for me.  I don’t want to scare you but I will tell you that I was calm mentally but my body wigged out on me.  I was throwing up all day including through out my shower.. I faked being ok the whole time.  It was a mess and a blur of a day & I wish I could have a redo πŸ™  Everyone was so loving and joyful, it warmed my heart to see all of my friends and family so happy for us I wish I could have enjoyed it more!  You will be fine just don’t work yourself up!

My first one is this Sunday.  All of FI’s side, most whom I don’t know or have only met once.  Eeek.  Holding it together pretty well now, but Sunday I’m sure I’ll be sweating bullets!

I was a major wreck for my shower.  I hate being center of attention and seriously had knots in my stomach the entire night before.  It turned out being so much fun and I was able to relax.

I am excited for mine, it’s this Sunday.  I don’t get nervous being the center of attention, I love it.  But it might be emotional for me as I am a pretty emotional person.  Seeing everyone who came out to celebrate with me and then having to thank you might make me cry LOL.

I’m so glad my shower (which is tomorrow, yay!) is a couples shower, so my FI will be there the entire time! I HATE being the center of attention, and I have been stressing out about what to wear! I just hope it is fun and relaxing and not awkward…

I was super hungover for mine!  The only way it worked was to have it the afternoon after the bachelorette party.  Woh-woh.

At my shower I was so antsy to get ready I pulled my car into the garage slipping on the gravel and tossing it up into the air onto the road where it hit a passing car. SO FUN! waiting to get the bill. I did have a great time after that… just let go! Whatever happens, happens.
