@gettinhitched1982:  Are you close to any other family members? Was your future mother in law and fiances aunts/cousins etc invited? I would consider them my family too. I’m sorry you are feeling hurt but don’t be embarassed. Some people have a hard time getting weekends off and hopefully they will all attend your wedding!! Try to be positive and just enjoy your friends/family that attend the shower.

@gettinhitched1982:  Everyone is in different circumstances. Many brides live at some distance  from their family, some families are estranged etc.

Just because someone is unable to attend a shower, doesn’t mean they don’t love and care for you. There is no need to be embarassed.

i agree with PPs. i would just revel in the fact that you are pregnant with an amazing miracle! (some people don’t ever get that)!

@gettinhitched1982:  I know you’re (understandably) disappointed, but look at it this way – you have a bunch of friends and your mom and it sounds like perhaps your ILs will be there and want you to revel in their love & joy! I would focus on who is there, enjoy and be present in the moment, and not focus on who is *not* there.
