My shower is the day before my wedding! Or, possible, the night before the day before my wedding. Everyone I want to invite (except for three!) lives out of town and it was just too much pressure on me to have them travel a whole separate weekend just for my shower.

 

Feel free to tell me how crazy this is.

Mine is May 26th in Ohio! My sister (MOH) just got the invites she ordered yesterday and will be sending them out soon! My Washington friends are also throwing me a Bachelorette party #2/shower the weekend of July 20-21!

I’m planning my friend’s shower for July 6 … We’ll be having the bachelorette that same night (her request … big bridal party, hard to get together!)

My shower invites went out over the weekend.  As I suspected, my mom couldn’t keep the date a secret for long.  My shower is June 8, 2013.  Got to go over the registry soon!

I’m not sure! My Maid/Matron of Honor and bridesmaid have asked me to get a list of people to invite together. This thread was a good reminder!

@vorpalette:  I’m with you.  Fiance and I just got a new place and its our first time out of our parents house and my BMs just keep talking about the bachelorette party.  I move in 3 months before our wedding and we literally have nothing to move in with. 

How do we hint that we’d like a bridal/wedding shower without sounding demanding?

@kveloso:  Bleh. My family has asked about where we registered, and I’m like, “How the eff do you guys think you’re going to get gifts to me if you don’t throw me a bridal shower?!” I have to have two because, while FFIL’s family and my family are fine, FMIL’s family will not come to one with FFIL’s family. I just assumed that, knowing we always do separate things for FI’s two sides, Future Mother-In-Law would say SOMETHING or ask for my grandma’s phone number or SOMETHING.

Ugh my bridal shower is turning into something 500 times more stressful than the wedding. My BMs are all out of town, my parents don’t want to spend a lot of money on it, my Future Mother-In-Law is still renovating her house after Hurricane Sandy so she hasn’t committed to anything. Its a shitshow, but hopefully things will get figured out this week. Its supposed to be May 19th.

I specifically told everyone i dont want a shower. I hate them. I hate the games, i hate opening presents for everyone to see. We have had a house for 4 years i dont need more pots and pans lol.
