I think the main thing you need to remember is that everyone is happy for you.  they are there because they are proud of you and happy to be sharing this amazing time with you.

I know it’s tough.  Maybe quietly say to a Bridesmaid or Best Man you can trust, let her know how you feel and ask her if she can keep things going if you need to excuse yourself for a little bit.

I understand your concerns but on the day you’ll probably be having that much fun you won’t realise you’re the centre 🙂

Embrace it!  When you have kids it will all be about them lol x

@rangersbride:  Great advice! Maybe ask your closest friends/cousin to try to keep things rolling if it looks like you’re too flustered with all the attention.

As a side note, I know exactly how you feel. I HATE being the centre of attention, but even worse, I am paranoid that I LOOK like love being the centre of attention and am craving it, when I’m not. Yikes!

I dreaded my shower because I was afraid it would be embarassing and I didnt want to be the center of uncessary attention. Well, I have to say that my shower was one of my favorite wedding memories! All the people I love were there and we had such fun.

My best advice is to relax and remember that you will only ever have one shower, one bachelorette party and one wedding. I was cringing inside coming down the asile because all eyes were on me, but it’s the only time I will get to do it. Just remember that everyone is there because they LOVE you.

I haven’t ha my bridal shower yet, but during my baby shower,  would start to feel overwhelmed. One thing I wold do is just excuse myself to the restroom.  After a few minutes, I would feel less anxious and reemerge.

If I was talking to someone and the covo was becoming strained, I would simply ask them if they needed something to drink, and say I was thirsty. Usually, people will say no, you can excuse yourself and get a drink. Find someone else to talk to for a few minutes.

At the end of my baby shower, I realized that while I didn’t spend a great deal of time with any one guest, I was able to talk individually to each of them, and I am happy I did.
