Can/did you let her know this?  Maybe you can say something like “we’ll play it by ear and see how I’m feeling” and maybe offer to consider having just have a small dinner at someone’s house or a restaurant (if you’re up to it).  I totally get where you’re coming from but people like to feel included and that they’re doing something special for you/brides during this time.  You may totally want to get out and just get your mind off your studying and the exam and wedding projects for a few hours and hang out with some people who are excited for you upcoming wedding.

@philodendron: I understand completely. If you can’t do it and you know right now that you won’t be able to do it, don’t offer any false hope. Communicate your situation directly with her if you can as opposed to going through others.

@philodendron:  this is a once in a lifetime experience. Drink a red bull and have fun for a few hours!

I think that if you just say to her what you’ve said to us, you’ll be fine.  I have been married twice now, and have turned down showers both times.
