@Birdie Love: yea, I start feeling bad when I read just about any post on here… but there are so many bees that I love. The ladies here are the closest friends that I have so i couldn’t leave. I just try to avoid posts that I think will just depress me more.

@Birdie Love: Oh I am right there with you! I’m sorry you feel unloved, I have felt that too a little bit.

I totally get you though. Future Mother-In-Law offered to throw me a shower but she has a way of leaving my mom out when they plan these things so…it just wasn’t something I wanted. My Maid/Matron of Honor is really too busy to throw me a shower and a lot of my friends are out of town too. Trust me, there are plenty of brides who don’t have showers because it isn’t for them–so don’t stress! The wedding will be fabulous and that is all that matters 🙂

I know how you feel 🙁

 

I won’t be having a shower, I live in Canada but our wedding is in the UK (where I am from) so although I have many friends here in Canada now, I don’t think its really on their radar because all the wedding stuff is going on in the UK. And in the UK my Maid/Matron of Honor is too busy planning her own wedding and dealing with her job as are the rest of my bridesmaids. So its not happeneing for me either.

 

Nvm the big day is enough of a crazy celebration. Thats how I look at it! (most of the time :P)

It’s not too late!  Get your girlies together and go out on the town for a stagette – you’ve still got a month left to do it!

It doesn’t need to be anything fancy…

I was feeling that way my MoH dropped out of my wedding, and no one was throwing me a shower, so I talked to my mom and she was like “We have this family friend that loves throwing parties!” So I just asked the family friend and she was thrilled. Maybe you have a female friend, aunt, friend of your mom that just LOVES throwing parties. Don’t be shy to ask someone if they could. I know it seems a little rude, but sometimes people don’t think about it. Even if no one you know can throw you a shower, try not to let it get you down. Maybe throw a party for yourself? Not a bridal shower exactly, but just a “I can’t wait to the wedding to celebrate that I’m getting married” girls day. Get some fruit, cookies, and balloons and invite some people that you enjoy. It’s the 21st century, you can be an independent woman and celebrate yourself!

I agree with HZjust make it happen; I live far from parents so didnt have a formal enagagement party so I invited all my girlfriends to drinks and celebrated, it was fun

who says you cant have a bachelorette party= there’s no written rule someone else pays for it or throws it- just invite your girlfriends for a night out and go bar hopping get a sash; why do we have to follow etiquette? if you want to party make it happen, a shower may be a bit tricky, usually someone throws that

Have you asked your Maid/Matron of Honor if she can talk to the other bridesmaids? My Maid/Matron of Honor can’t host my bridal shower (it’s in my homestate, and she can’t travel to it before the wedding) but she talked to another bridesmaid who lives there, who then offered to host it and my mom is going to help. So, maybe another friend will be kind enough to help. Have your Maid/Matron of Honor put out some feelers, you may have a friend who loves throwing parties!
