I am so so soooo grateful that my bridesmaids are planning a lovely shower for me. Two of the four have never even been to a shower before, so it’s extra special to me that they are putting in so much effort to make it great. However, due to their travel, the shower is planned for a holiday weekend this summer. Which means that hardly anyone is coming 🙁 I’m really bummed and having a pity party. With the girls, moms, and my FI’s aunt it will end up being about 10 people. And I’m sad. I know 10 is a decent amount…but more than half can’t make it. I’m not mad at them, just feeling sad.

Totally understand your being sad (and not mad). Just disappointed, huh? Perhaps a positive way to look at it is that you’ll have a cozy group who can really spend some quality time with you. There are still a good number of people coming for YOU to celebrate your big day. They could be out doing other things that day, but they are coming to be with you! 🙂
You could have another shower with a bunch of those who weren’t around for this one. Perhaps make it a little different, have someone host it at a fun restaurant and have a girls evening of it.
Just some thoughts!

It’ll be great! Don’t worry about how many people are there, just enjoy your lovely shower!

Honestly, I think that’s a great number! You will really get to spend good quality time with them and enjoy the presents from each and every one (if you are doing presents). I had too many at mine to really do much more than chat for a minute or two before moving to the next guest.
Don’t worry, you are loved!

I can see how you would feel a little sad about having only 10 of you there but try and think positive.
I would prefer a more intimate bridal shower but have to invite all the ladies out of courtesy. There’s about 50. Its so overwhelming…
Cheer up and enjoy your bridal shower.
