My sister told me this morning that only 7/15 people RSVP’d for my shower. I was really hoping to have at least 10 people 🙁 How can I still make the party fun and now awkard? Did anyone else have a small bridal shower?

I just had my bridal shower this past weekend and it was only 7 people not including me it went fine. We did two games and ate food and I opened gifts. It wasn’t akward at all

@Sassygrn: Thank you that made me feel a lot better 🙂 I know that most showers have like 20-30 people but I wanted small and intimate, just not THAT small! LOL

Small is better, it gives you the opportunity to spend time with everyone there, rather than having to spread yourself about like you will have to at your wedding. Go for something that incorporates games, much easier with a few, and some bubbly, much cheaper with a few lol.
I dont’t have many girlfriends, so mine will probably be smaller than yours. Enjoy your party!

It will be fun because you can actually take the time with each of your guests. Large bridal showers are fun, but spending an hour opening endless presents can get boring. Just relax and have a fun time with whoever shows up! It will be great 🙂

You can do more involved things that you wouldn’t normally be able to do at a large shower! One thing I’m thinking about for a shower I’m planning for my friend that will be small is decorating cookies because she loves to bake 🙂 That would be a disaster with 20 people!

I had a big shower (40+ people) and a small shower, about 8 total including me and I totally preferred the small shower. I was a lot more relaxed and got to talk to people. People who couldn’t make it still sent gifts, so there was a lot to open also.
We still played a game, but it was more fun than the game at the big shower. People got more into it and paid more attention since there was less potential for side conversation.

One of the best showers I went to was about 8 people. Basically, we all got together at the MOH’s house and had brunch. We sat around talking like we normally do and then the bride opened her gifts at the end. It was great b/c it was just like meeting the girls for brunch but one of us got gifts. Who wouldn’t have fun doing that?
