Hmmph. I live halfway across the country from all of my ‘old’ friends. My Maid/Matron of Honor wants to throw me a shower, but really only about 10 people would attend, mostly FH’s female family members. I’m not really super close with anyone except maybe 3 people who I would invite. Should I even bother having a shower? I am kinda bummed. I wish I was back home sometimes. Bleh. It’s just that kinda day I guess.
And Maid/Matron of Honor offered to just do a lunch somewhere, but that would seem lame to me, going to lunch with 3 girlfriends, it would be like ‘I really have no friends here so you guys are it’ to me. I know that’s silly but it’s how I’m feeling.

i’m having a shower with 5 people – i’m in the same boat! But think about it this way – it’s a chance to make it more about the quality time than the presents. We’re having a spa day. It’s going to be awesome!

@ Crayfish – a spa day sounds really good for a small amount of people. That’s such a good idea. Obviously I can’t ask my Maid/Matron of Honor to do that (lol) but it’s a really good idea.

I think you should still have a shower! I know in most cases it’s, the more the merrier but honestly, there is nothing wrong with having a smaller shower. It’ll be easier to coordinate and you’ll get to spend some great quality/bonding time with your friends. I say go for it, and enjoy!

You could do a post-wedding spa day sort of thing? If you go back during the year anytime? And that way you could all talk about the wedding and recap some of the glow 🙂
