I’m having 2 showers. One was a couple weeks ago, and 2 of my 3 bridesmaids came.
The next one is this Saturday and none of them are coming. I know their only obligation is to stand next to me at the wedding, but I can’t help but be a little bummed that none of them are coming. Especially since it’s FH’s side of the family hosting..I was hoping to have at least one there. And it’s honestly not about the gift. I just wanted to have friends there, since I won’t know the majority of the people attending.
Did anyone elses bridesmaids not show up to the shower?

All my bm’s planned and came to my first shower. Only my future SIL, who is a bm, came to my second shower. I definitely didn’t expect them all to travel for both showers! I had a good time at my second shower even though I didn’t know all the people and actually it was nice to get to know FI’s extended family better.

One of my BM’s did not come to my shower, but she lives in another province so I wasn’t expecting her to, but at the same time she didn’t even RSVP, nor has she asked me about it!! I’m a little bummed!

Same thing with me. All 4 Bridesmaid or Best Man, plus the junior bridesmaid and flowergirl, came to my first shower, which was for my side of the family thrown by my aunt. Only 2 BMs (my best friend & my new SIL) came to the second shower, thrown by my Mother-In-Law & SIL. The junior bridesmaid (my husband’s goddaughter) and the flowergirl (my MOH’s daughter) both came (even though Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t… Flower Girl came with my mom). Would’ve been nice to have them all at both, but no big deal. They had other commitments already that day.

I think that’s kind of why I’m sad. I told them they didn’t need to plan a shower. 2 was plently…So I guess I figured they’d come to the others since they didn’t have to plan one themselves. And I understand everyones lives dont revolve around me or the wedding, I’m just bummed that not even one of them can come.

I’m having 3 showers, and not all of them are coming to each one. 3 came to the one this past Saturday, 2 will be there this Saturday, and then 4 will be there on Sunday. I have 7 bm’s total, but they live all over the place so I really don’t mind to be honest. I know they can’t be at all of them.

I had two showers, 2/5 bridesmaids at the first (both my sisters) and 2/5 bridesmaids at the second (one of my sisters and his sister). So, my one sister went to both. All the bridesmaids did make it out for my bachelorette though. And, they’ll all be at the wedding. 🙂
Honestly, I was so happy to see all the other people at the showers that it didn’t really matter to me who wasn’t there.

I would expect the BMs to attend one shower but not all or both (in your case). It sounds like you really only have issue with one Bridesmaid or Best Man who isn’t attending either. Does she have a valid reason?

3 of my girls wont be at the one my Future Mother-In-Law is throwing. I am by no means upset. The shower will be awkard enough. It will be me and 20 women I have never met. My mom is going my Maid/Matron of Honor and the Bridesmaid or Best Man who is my roommate. His mom lives with us (my Fiance and my one Bridesmaid or Best Man and myself), so she is kind of obligated.
Are’t you BMs throwing you a shower?
