Is it bad that I’m not even wanting a shower?? Lol

I’m an older bride though…..we have all that we need for the most part, we already live together for years etc. We feel that by having a shower is just asking people to buy a stuff which we don’t really need or want them to have to do plus we feel that everyone sharing  our special day is more than enough of a gift. :+)

We even thought about making a notation on the invitations saying “your presence is gift enough” but then I feel that may seem controlling and people will basically do what they want….but we def don’t expect anything.

We invited about 125 and I had about 25 at my shower. Only about 5 didn’t come to the shower and every single person invited to the wedding came! I kid you not!

Sounds like a lot of people only had one shower so the numbers are bigger.  Those big showers sound like a lot of fun though!  In our area you usually have one shower for each side of the family, a lingerie shower for close friends, and a “general friends, co-workers, church friends, neighbors shower.”  Depending on day and time, it seems like 15-20 are invited and maybe a dozen are able to come.

I’m not having a shower, but I’ve thrown a ton of them. I find between 50-75% usually attend, and most of my friends have requested around 30 guests be invited.
