@PonytailKim:  I’m having two showers – one in the city, hosted by my bridal party, for friends and one closer to my parents’ house, hosted by my mother, for family members. It’s the easiest way for everyone to be able to attend without having to travel too much!

Sounds like the perfect situation for both families.

I have to do two as well. I am not relishing the idea of registering and receiving gifts at two parties :l but my Mother and Future Mother-In-Law are asking for this. Gah.

Your idea sounds wonderful – casual is the way to go for these things!

I have heard of multiple showers. Sometimes certain groups of people want to have a their own little celebration with a bride (co workers, or old college friends) with out family.

I’m having two showers as well…one where I currently live, and one in my hometown.

We were exactly the same as you.  Each hometown about 100 miles apart, and we were (still are) in the middle living in a very small town.  DH’s family held one for his side of fam and his girl friends/friend’s wives, my sisters & mom held one for my side of fam and my friends.  It worked out great and most appreciated not having to make such a drive to attend the shower.

@PonytailKim:  my fiance’s family is throwing a couple’s shower for us this weekend and then my family is throwing a more traditional, female only shower in May.  Most of my friends ended up having 2 showers so you’re not alone!

Where I live it’s not uncommon to have even 4 or 5 showers. Work shower, church shower, her family,  his family,  and any other social group you might be part of.

I’m having three, but not by my choice. We’ll be having one in the city we live in in North Dakota, one in the city where his family lives in in California, and one in the city my family lives in in Alberta.

As long as you have people to host it I don’t really see the problem. This isn’t uncommon for people that have family and/or friends in many different places. We had two engagement parties, one where I lived and one where my husband is originally from.
