I’m getting married on June 19th of this year, and I’m having a wonderful time planning. My amazing Maid/Matron of Honor is planning a shower for me in May and I’m super excited! Last year there was a wedding every other month, so I’ve been to a lot of showers, and I’ve loved going to them all. I just can’t believe I actually get to have one, and I’m feeling a little guilty about being so excited. Just wondering if anyone else has felt that way?

I was convinced I wouldn’t have a shower, and I just found out that one of my BMs is organizing one for me. I was so incredibly excited to get this news, and also feeling a bit guilty. So you’re not alone 🙂

Why does it make you feel guilty? I didn’t have one and I’m sort of sad about that but you get more gifts from the wedding itself so if you are feeling guilty about getting gifts, you should feel guilty about the wedding!

I HEAR YA!!
We had 7 weddings last year, I was in 3 of them, Fiance in 1 – It was wedding mania. I’m also one of the last to get married, I not used to being center of attention and people asking to throw a party FOR ME…?? totaly throwing me for a loop. the wedding planning was us, planning a party for us. — easy enough.
I ended up asking to do two smaller showers – one with all my family and good friends and the other with our family friends and extended people – which I’m calling the anti-shower. more like a cocktail party. Makes me feel less center-of-attention.
You’re not alone! I’m stll kinda in shock that everyone wants to do this stuff for us!

I’m not sure why I feel guilty, it’s just a tiny bit, and I fully intend to enjoy every wedding related activity. My FH and I have have been together for over 7 years, and we joke that we had to make sure everyone we knew got married first! It’s finally our turn. Yay! Thanks for the input ladies! *Amanda*

Don’t feel guilty… you’ve earned it! I’m actually trying to soak it all in because I know at the end of April the parties, bachelorette, and the wedding will be over and we’ll be off to our honeymoon. There is so much work and love that goes into planning I don’t want to miss a moment being upset, frustrated, or worried. It just gets in the way of all the happy time. Granted this is easier said than done but bask in the fun and joy it is to be a bride-to-be! Congratulations!!!

Hi! I love your post as I have totally gone through the same thing. I feel like I have attended so many bridal showers and so many weddings and engagement parties (and I LOVE them all), but now that it is my turn I feel like maybe other people are ‘over’ the perpetual celebrations. It’s totally in my head though – but its great to know that others feel the same way!!

I’d probably be excited if the people planning it hadn’t been bothering me all along about the details and drama. It is mostly going to be my FI’s family so it should be… interesting. I’m actually dreading it and I can’t wait for it to be over. But, I have another, much less formal shower in May that I’m looking forward too!
