    I say talk to the girl that is hosting the party and see if she would be willing to help you reschedule. Then you can take a poll of the people you want there and see what weekend works best for the majority of the people. Then continue from there. 

    If you think that she would get upset or offended or stressed or something, then I just say roll with it and HAVE A BLAST!! That way you won’t come off as ungracious or something. THe others are missing out! Perhaps you can call the non-responders and see what’s up! You might be surprised!

    This is such a busy time of year!! Was it short notice? I would try to reschedule, I’m sorry you’re having bad luck with this date. I hope you can get a better turnout!

    I would just have a spa day and create an open invitation. That being said. I don’t like partying anyway.

    I bet you’ll have a great time with a small group (or just one BM!!) Those are usually the best nights 🙂

    What a bummer. I had the same thing happen with my shower (it was supposed to be tomorrow). The excuses were mostly good, but some were lame. I would reschedule, but still go have a nice night with your friend who offered to throw it. I canceled mine because I just don’t have enough time before the wedding… so much going on. AND as much as I don’t want to be, I’m a little bitter and don’t feel like setting myself up for the rejection again.  I hope it all works out for you!

    Just you and her! Five of my six BFFs cancelled on mine, so just me and one girl went. We had a TOTAL blast!

    Who determines what a good excuse is? What happens if you have someone who refuses to tell you why they won’t come. 

    Just go with whoever is able to go. Have a good time. There’s no guarantee that if you reschedule people won’t still have other things to do.
