If my friend or family were eloping I would definetly have a shower!!  I don’t have any petty friends or famiy though that would find it tacky to not have a wedding to be invited to.  They would be doing what a shower is – showering the bride to be with gifts to make her married life easier/better! 🙂

The thinking that you should only be happy for/go to a bridal shower if you get to go to a paid ceremony/party is tacky, if you ask me.  Shut up and enjoy, lol!

Yes, the invitation is out and it’s a done deal – be grateful and let yourself enjoy it!

I’ve been to a shower for a friend who was eloping and I didn’t have any problem with it, we had fun.  It would be rude of you to demand a shower but since you’re not, enjoy being spoiled for a night!
