- Wedding: February 2013
So Saturday I had the first of three wedding showers. It was alright for the first bit, while everyone was chatting and eating. Then we started playing games. I couldn’t play any of the games, because It was all questions about me and i was judging some of them, so I just kind of sat there awkwardly. Opening gifts was really weird too. I knew what they had got me off the registry, so I wasn’t really surprised. I liked it all, but I didnt know what to do besides just open it. Plus I’m really uncomfortable around alot of my extended family. I don’t know them all that well and only really see them at gatherings. I have two more showers to go. One is the personal shower which only 25 are invited to, so were expecting about 20. But opening up lingerie in front of everyone? I don’t know. Then theres going to be the one at my Fiancees parents. I dont know how many are invited to that but i think around 50. I’ve met most of them, but I can never remember anyones name so that should be weird. Fortunatly I get along with my MIL and FIL, and my fiancee is coming with me, but I’m still really nervous.
Does anyone have tips on how to enjoy those showers cuz this last one was mainly just really awkward for me. I’m really shy around people I don’t know well and don’t like being the center of attention.
