So our wedding shower is in two weeks. Eeeeep. I’m nervous because I hate being the center of attention. I also hate not being in control. I’ve obsessed over the registries for about a week now and I’m trying to let it go because I don’t want to ruin any surprises. I just want it to be over to know what we got. Don’t get me wrong, I’m ok with just getting a tooth pick. I just want to know! Lol. I promised my SO I would leave the registries alone till after the shower. We’ll see how these next two weeks go.
So we’re having a co-ed wedding shower put on by our church choir and it will be in the bulletin for the whole church to come. It’s a 2pm dessert shower. I’ve neer been to a wedding or bridal shower before so what should I expect? I know I can’t get out of opening the gifts as much as I wish I could, I’m quite shy. Any other bees struggling with relaxing and letting it just happen? I was thinking of bringing my thank you card envelopes for people to write their addresses down to make the thank you cards easier.

My sister had a church shower and it was quite nice! So many ladies came out (some we expected, some we didn’t). It was really nice and they were super generous in their gifts!
I think we probably prayed once, before we had some snacks but otherwise it was not “churchy” or “religious”.
I think you should plan to have a great time 🙂 My sister is shy too, an she was blushing the whole time, but smiled from ear to ear the whole time too 😉

@MelodicCallie: Showers are dorky and casual but kinda fun. 🙂 Don’t worry about it too much. There will be food and punch and lots of women asking about your wedding and being excited for you. You’ll probably play some lame games (that you may or may not have to participate in) and then you get lots of presents!
You should definitely get addresses, but I’d do like a guest book kind of thing instead of the envelopes. I mean, everyone knows why you’re getting their addresses, but having a book gives the pretense of “I just want to stay in touch!” as opposed to announceing “I just need it to fulfill the social obligation of having to send you a Thank You card!”. You could even just get a cute cheap address book.
