If someone wants to throw you a shower absolutely let them! It’s a wonderful experience. And not because of material stuff, but just being surrounded by all the ladies who love you. It’s really special. You should enjoy all the bells and whistles of wedding traditions, you don’t deserve it any less than a 20something bride.

I’m a 31 year old lawyer and most of my friends are poor or on welfare and I’ve been with Fiance for going on 11 years,  living together for 6 years,  already have most things we need,  but we’re still having a shower. We aren’t going to expect much,  but we still get to do all the same traditions as everyone else!

Why don’t you leave the decision to your friends or family if they would like to throw you a shower? I got married at 35 and declined a bridal shower, but other people offering to host a gift giving event is very different than you deciding to throw a shower for yourself.

aprilmb1:  All the background and justification is unnecessary. Why would it be tacky or unacceptable for someone to throw you a shower? Nobody is going to think “What a greedy bitch, didn’t I just give her a freaking frying pan 14 years ago? And now she expects wedding presents too?!” As long as you’re not throwing it yourself or asking people to throw you one, it’s perfectly fine. You mentioned that people think you’re loaded — are they struggling financially? If so, be sure to register for a lot of lower-price-point items. It can be a bitter pill when you want to celebrate a loved ones marriage, but everything on their registry costs more than the light bill you’re already not sure how you’re going to pay. Other than that, have fun and enjoy this time!

Your housewarming party was 14 years ago, right? I think it’s fine to have your mom throw a shower for you and the commenters above are right that people would be insane to think that a gift they gave over a decade ago should count towards this. Enjoy the shower!
