Your sister only gave people one week’s notice?  I’d be a little ticked off at her, because it’s probably a big part of the reason more aren’t coming.  What was she thinking?

You’re not being petty, it’s natural to feel disappointed.  I hope you have fun, anyway.  Big hugs!!

So this is obviously a second shower, were many of the same people invited? You are only supposed to have one shower, and I wouldn’t complain if the same people that attended your previous shower are now the ones not attending this one, it definitely seems like a cash grab.

Mine was same sort of deal – I was just thrilled that people showed up (except my Future Mother-In-Law, her I could have done without). Just enjoy the company of those that are there – having been in a situation where like you I’ve gone out of my way and my comfort zone over the years to shower my friends and enjoy their events, I felt my own shower actually had little to do with me at all.

You can’t dwell on it, honestly there is no point, it wont change anything at all and you still have to get up the next day. Grin and bear it, sorry dudette but it’s the best way.

Because of scheduling and distance, I had my one and only shower the night before the wedding- when all I wanted to do was attend to all the last minute wedding details! My mother, Future Mother-In-Law, Maid/Matron of Honor, and my grandmother were the only guests. I know I would have liked to have had a big shower with the games, tiny sandwiches, lots of guests, etc., but I also don’t really regret it.

Enjoy your time. It might not be the perfect event that you’ve dreamed of, but it’s still better than nothing, and having people around who love you is always a wonderful thing.

WOW, I am feeling the same way.  I had a bad friend breakup a few months ago, my mom is crazy (as in had to be sent away), and have no sisters.  I am not being thrown a shower and I feel your pain.  If I had money, people would be celebrating me.  I have given my last $50 at times to be there for people.  Im feeling a little left out too,.  This is my first wedding btw.

So anyways my point was to enjoy the people that do come! Even if its an intimate setting with close family, they care enough to celebrate you.  I totally did not mean to talk about me.  Reading your post made me feel not quite so alone though.
