Did any of you lovely encore Bees have a bridal shower the second time? I never expected one, or even talked about it, because I just assumed I wouldn’t have one especially because the wedding is so small. Last night, a dear friend of FI’s (female) who I’ve also become close with asked who was planning my shower? I explained that I didn’t even think about it, since I’ve already been married etc. and she seemed really surprised that I wasn’t having one. Since no one else has mentioned throwing me one, I can only imagine a lot of people think about the same as me but wondered if I was just odd? I’m not against the idea, if someone threw me a shower I would think it was sweet and lovely, I just never really thought about it, so that wouldn’t be the reason no one offered. What do you think?

I didn’t have a bridalshower the firt time around so I’m kind of hoping for one now. I think it’s ok to have one the second time around, it’s a celebration!

I might be having more than one bridal shower and it’s my first and should be my only wedding (mostly because of geographical restrictions and I move around a lot easier than half of a family).. here’s my thought if people want to throw them for you.. then hell yea! Its not like someone can judge YOU for something other people are doing for you.

I’ve never had a bridal shower, or a bachelorette part for that matter… But Darling Husband and I eloped, so that probably has something to do with it. Not only that, but Darling Husband and I didn’t need anything, because we were combining two complete households–we needed to get RID of stuff!!! Although, it would have been cool if someone had thrown a lingerie party for me…
However, I don’t see anything wrong with encore brides having showers thrown for them. It’s a different wedding and a different couple. Besides, it is a friend who decides to throw one, not the bride.

I feel the same about bridal showers as I do about baby showers.. no matter how many children (or marriages) you have… it is a celebration and every bride (or baby) should be showered!! 🙂

I think you get a shower per wedding.
But I have to disagree about getting a shower per baby. Maybe only a sprinkle for the second baby!

LOL thanks ladies!! I’m still not having one (unless someone is planning a surprise that I’m unaware of) but it’s nice to know that I *could* if someone wanted me to have one.
Baby showers I think it depends, if you have 2-3 kids close together it doesn’t make sense to have a full on baby shower, but if you have a surprise baby after you’ve given away all of your baby stuff you should have one, or at least *something*.
