I know I am having one. It never really occurred to me to have more than one (although I think it is wonderful to have that many people who love you and want to throw one for you). It just made me think reading about showers being thrown by say your mother’s friends. Are all of them invited to the wedding or do people have showers thrown for them by people not invited to the wedding?

I didn’t have any! I was moving from Atlanta to SF so it just got too crazy to organize anything. My closets girlfriends live all over US & Asia, making it even harder too.

I had one, thrown by my grandma, mom, and godmother. My Mother-In-Law was supposed to technically help host it, but she decided to not pay her half, so I would not consider her one of the hostesses.

I hit 3 but I’m only having 2! One for ‘housewares’ and one for lingerie. I just don’t feel comfortable opening lingerie in front of his grandma! 🙂

As far as I know, I am having two. One is near where I live (so cal) with local people invited and one in my hometown (central cal) with some relatives invited. This way, my Maid/Matron of Honor doesn’t have to host too many people at once and those who live far away (central and nor cal) don’t have to come down twice in one year. Usually the girls at work throw baby showers, but not sure if I will get a work shower seeing as how I am not really inviting anyone from work.
My first and biggest shower is in about a month and I’m so excited!

My Mother-In-Law and her best friend threw mine. It was fantastic!

I’m having three against my own will, haha. My Maid/Matron of Honor is throwing one where we live for most of our guests (mostly college-aged) and it will be a "Jack & Jill" joint shower with a luau theme.
Then my mother wants to host one in my hometown for family and church members.
Finally, my future sis & mother in law are throwing one in my FH’s hometown for their side of the family and church members.
I think it’s a little much but none of them are budging and think I should just be happy with all the gifts I’ll be receiving. Bleh. I guess it’s best for the guests since the 3 towns are hours apart and we really can’t combine any of them because of the distances…

I am so lucky! My wonderful Maid/Matron of Honor (cousin) & aunt are throwing me a shower for my dad’s & stepmom’s sides of the family & my friends. Then, my great aunt is throwing me a shower for my mom’s and stepdad’s sides of the family & my mom’s friends. Finally, my fiance’s aunt is throwing me a shower for his family & his mom’s friends. I’m really surprised & honored by all this attention, but I’m really looking forward to hanging out with all the women I love (and getting to know his family better, since I’ve only met some of them once).

I think I’m having two. My Future Mother-In-Law is throwing a tea party for me in April with her friends and FI’s family, and I think my aunts are throwing another one for my family and my mom’s friends.

I’m having two and I feel so lucky. I had my first one this past weekend and it was so much fun to have so many friends and family members together with everybody just happy and supportive. It was a great way to re-focus on the upcoming marriage instead of all the nitpicky wedding details.
