Take lots of deep breaths. Remember that the people who do attend are there because they want to share in the joy of your marriage and wish you well.

Make sure that someone who knows about your shyness (mom, friend?) sits next to you so they can whisper encouraging and helpful words.

When I had my showers for my first marriage, my then Future Mother-In-Law hosted a shower where she and my Future Sister-In-Law were the only 2 I knew. The other 50-60 ladies were their friends, neighbours, relatives and church members. My FSIl sat next to me at my request. After I opened a gift and oohed and aahed, she would  whisper to me g”The lady in the pink dress sittin on the right of the piano” and I would look at that lady and say” Thanks so much, I love the teapot!” I felt like an idiot with all eyes on me, but I got through it and so will you.

Don’t forget that you can always excuse yourself, and take a break, even if that involves going to the bathroom.

Let us know how it goes.

I don’t like being the center of attention either!  But I found out that once I got into the swing of opening gifts it wasn’t all that bad.  Many of the women were chatting the entire time I opened gifts and they really only looked over when I opened a gift from them.

Like julies said have somone sit next to you and help you!  Its actually not as bad as you think its going to be.  =)  Plus…its kinda awesome to open presents!

I was in the same boat as you in that I don’t have a lot of close girlfriends. My two good friends who were in our wedding were going to be coming in from out-of-state, so obviously they weren’t at the shower. Showers and events like this are anxiety-inducing; you’re not crazy. I’m so glad to hear it all went well for you and can’t wait to see pics. 🙂
