I’m not having a shower, nor do I particularly want one.

I’m sorry you’re feeling down about this, but thankfully your family will be able to come out for the wedding!

I didn’t have a shower either.  Especially since almost all of my friends were out of town and wouldn’t be able to fly in again.

I never had a shower.  I was in another country which made it impossible, and my wedding was in my homestate, so even when I did get back in the US, I would have had to travel to have a shower and that wasn’t possible.

I’m not getting a shower either πŸ™ ALL of my family is out of state so I wasn’t really expecting one but it would’ve been nice to have the whole “wedding experience”. I’m a little bummed but Can’t really complain too much all my loved ones will be with me on our wedding day. Since the shower isn’t a possibility I was thinking of having a wedding lunch the day before with all the special women in my life. Just something for you to consider.

I wasn’t going to have a shower, and then at the last minute someone offered to throw one right before the wedding in the town we’re getting married (3,000 miles away.) I really appreciate it but honestly, its become kind of stressful since I’m getting into town the day before and have a lot to do. It will be fun, but I honestly don’t think I’d be devastated if we weren’t having one. Its all going to be my mom’s friends anyway, since all of mine live all over the country and can’t come until a day or two before the wedding.

I’m not having a shower either. For one, everyone is out of town, so it’s not like everyone can get together (except for the day before the wedding, but I would be too stressed) and two, wedding guests are already paying so much to travel and come to the wedding – I don’t want them to feel like they need me to get a shower gift too.

I never really understood what showers are for. By that time, Fiance and I will be living together, so we won’t need anything for the house.

I didn’t have a shower.  I lived in WA while my family and friends were all on the east coast. πŸ™  I tried to suggest having it the week before the wedding but my sister was too busy to plan it. So I didn’t have one.

I was bummed out.

Now shower here either–literally everyone is an ocean away.  Considering everyone is flying in for the wedding (including us!), it all works out πŸ™‚
