I have no idea  :/   I dont’ even know that I’m having one.

My mother was SO insulted when Future Mother-In-Law stole the baby shower away from her (she just decided she was doing it without consulting anyone, not realizing/caring that it is the MOTHER’s privilege not MIL’s privilege to host a shower.    Then she showed up for the birth after we told her we didn’t want anyone there, so my mother missed that too, and she has never gotten over the disappointment) so I’m ASSUMING she will call dibs on this one, if she hasn’t already.   I really don’t know though.

I have about a zillion dresses already so I probably won’t buy anything new even if I accidentally catch wind of a shower …

I am having mine SUPER early!  Mine is on June 1.  The reason is because June 1 was the only weekend date that nothing was already going on until the middle of August… August would be an ideal time for typical people, but I am a teacher and we start school in August which makes for a chaotic month!  My aunts are hosting mine 🙂

I am actually having two showers, very blessed! My first one is June 23rd and my second one is July 28th. I thought they were booth too early but I am so glad to see lots of other people who are having them around the same time! 

I am wearing the same dress I wore to my college graduation! Lol just a simple white sun dress, I want to save and buy a new dress for the rehersal dinner instead! 

My second shower my mom is hosting but under the guise of my bridesmaids (meaning she is footing the bill and giving the girls all the credit). She thinks its not appropriate etiquette-wise for her to host, even though I don’t necessarily agree or think anyone would care! Anyone else having their mom host the shower??

I have 3 dresses in the mail at my work tomorrow! I can’t wait to check them out – its been hard to find something I like that isnt black for the shower. I just always wear dark colors…. they are slimming!

I am also having 2 showers 6/1 an 6/22 and a “low key” bachelorette after the first one. It will be fun dinner and a show w all the ladies of my family since everyone will be in town together. I will also be having more of a “bar” type bachelorette in the city with my friends closer to the wedding.

we wanted to do most of the wedding stuff before it got to be summer and people away for weekends and vacations

You all are soo lucky you know when your shower is! I wish! But since on my days off I’m usually dressed downish and I don’t want to look like a ‘bum’ at my bridal shower..I’m buying a dress and shoes and giving them to my mom to bring to my shower!  Now I just need to find a dress!

My friend just sent me a message saying she’s planning one for me in early September.  I heard through the grapevine that my coworkers are planning something as well, though I’m not sure of the date.

My shower was super early as well – It was just this past Sunday!  My sister is my moh and she lives in Cali and this was one of her only free weekends until the month of the wedding.  My shower was beautiful and amazing but opening those gifts in front of everyone was not my favorite.  I was having serious hot flashes during the whole process.

I haven’t planned it just yet! Getting together with my ladies so we have a date and they can go to town on the details, I believe we were thinking August.

My first shower is June 2 (one week today, ahh!), hosted by my Future Mother-In-Law. My second shower is in mid-July. We could do it closer to the date because my sister is getting married August 24 (7 weekes before me!), so I want to devout my complete attention to her August. And I am a teacher heading back to school in September, so that month will be chaotic as well!

I honestly think you can never go wrong with a pretty sundress and coordinated accessories.  Pretty, classic, nice but not too formal.  Something like the images below, but obviously a dress that appeals to your style and taste.

I feel like the odd one out. 🙁

I’m having two amazing people throw me 2 different showers, I’m so grateful for and not 1 has scheduled a date yet. We were orginally getting married in Nov but had to move the date up. I felt awful so I offered to keep the date the same but my friend suggested we choose another date. Well she hasn’t been quick to pick one. Likely because she’s expecting her 2nd child any day now…I get it!!!!! But she suggested late Sept or early Oct.

Then my aunt is throwing the other one. I suggested Aug to her and she shot that down saying all of Aug was out. I suggested early Sept and she said no because it was around my bday (?)…I don’t even celebrate that kind of stuff wtih her…so I don’t know. But she won’t confirm any dates with me. I even suggested July because she teaches and I thought it would be easier for her to host with a pretty open schedule and there has been no response. Maybe she just doesn’t want to host it? I don’t know…

 

Anyway…I guess my shower will be in late Sept/early Oct and we get married in 10-10, in a Destination Wedding, just us 2.
