Why can;t your best friend throw it? Who says you only get one shower? I know some people who have multiple showers including myself. My side threw one and his side threw one. There is still plenty of time to organize another shower for you.

Is it a typo kind of misspelling, or something like your name is Katelyn and they spelled it Caitlin?

I completley understand how you feel.  Even though for the last 28 years I’ve been spelling my name Ali lots of family members just make up their own spellings… they also call my fiance by the wrong name. Granted it’s an unusual name, but we’ve been together for 10 years so…..  at this point I just correct them on the spot. What else can I do? (Well, I also usually call them crazy under my breath..hah)

One of FMIL’s friends threw me a shower a few weeks ago–I had never met her, or most of the women who were there (about 10 women total, most of whom were in their 60s/70s).  My name was mis-spelled on the invitation also, as were the names of some of the invitees 🙂  I *know* that the shower was thrown out of friendship w/FMIL, and I am fine with it.  It was a lovely day and it was nice to meet these women who I had never met before.  I honestly hope that when I am in my 70s, I have friends as good as Future Mother-In-Law does who want to throw a shower for a woman they have never met!

Basically, my advice is to let it go–apaprently this happens often (or, well, at least twice in recent memory). It means a lot to the women who are organizing it so let them have their day.   Your mom also is likely super excited about the shower also, so let her have her excitement.  Her friends are throwing a shower for her daughter who is getting married–total awesomeness for a mom.
