    Maybe he can explain to her this would be a great wedding favour!

    @Ahone:  I agree.. I’ve been very straightforward about not wanting one.  And I’m not having one.

    But not everyone is that direct, and she may not want to look like “the bad guy”.

    It does sound like a strange situation. My guess is that she really doesn’t want a shower, but she doesn’t know how to say so. If your aunt really wants to throw a shower, I think a couples shower would be the way to go! Maybe ask if she’d be more comfortable with that. If she isn’t, then maybe just skip the shower.

    It seems useless to me to force a shower on someone who doesn’t want one. Just don’t have one for her, as she clearly doesn’t get them and doesn’t want one.

    I would definitely try for the Jack and Jill shower. Even though the bride is the typical guest of honor at showers, the groom also benefits. I wouldn’t want him to miss out if he was my brother. Even if she doesn’t want one, it seems like your brother does. It wouldn’t be fair to him to just right off having a shower entirely.

    I wouldn’t throw a shower for her. Leave it up to her family since she’s making no effort with yours.
