Put your foot down.  Normally, I say that when someone throws you a shower, it’s a gift and if you’re not footing any portion of the bill, then you have no say.  However, in this case – tell them that if they don’t change the date, you’re not going to show up to your own shower.  Tell them this isn’t up for debate.  The answer is that that’s a bad date and you’re not having a shower on that date.  End of story.  My Fiance also lost his mom at a young age and he gets sad every year on her birthday and on the anniversary of her death.  I couldn’t imagine doing that to him, either.

@futuremrsk18:  +1 all the way. They need to be considerate of his side of the family. It’s not just an ordinary day.
