When people ask, just simply say that no one has offered to host one and leave it at that. Or say something like, not that I know of.

Why not have a small party after you get married?

i dont think its rude. in our day & age who cares ? unless ur family is traditional ! have a joint bridal shower with your man too 🙂 weddings are about the love & spending it with people who love both of you . or maybe ask your Maid/Matron of Honor what she thinks?

@Fermata: I think what your stumbling over is the “Shower” aspect of it. I would say to just hold something like a cocktail party to celebrate with your Church. Ask the Church if you can use their hall and send invites or post in the parish bulletin. It can even just be a “Coffee/Tea” Reception. If you send invites and do not want gifts then state that “No Boxed or Cash Gifts. Your Attendance is the Gift” If you don’t want to do it for the gifts, but would be happily suprised if a few did, then just inviting through the bulletin + word of mouth is good and if asked you can let them know you just want them to attend.

I think that would help you celebrate with the ones you want without it being a big expense and without it being a “shower”. Do that just after you get married by going back to celebrate.
