That’s a though one! Is she invited to the other showering as well?

 I don’t see the big deal in her throwing you one? If it’s at work it’ll be totally seperate from the other one.

I don’t think it’s appropriate to have guests invited to both showers.  They might think that you want them to buy 2 gifts which isn’t fair for them.

It sounds like your co-worker and a few other office co-workers will already be invited to the other shower.  Could it be that she hasn’t received her invitation to this other shower yet?

If there is still a large group that would be interested at work (other than those already going to the Bridesmaid or Best Man shower) then I say let her throw it. Maybe you could ask to keep it low key, maybe you and the gals just all go out for lunch one day and she can bring the cake or something.

Some people just get really excited about weddings.  Try to find something she can help with to make her feel included.

Can she be on your House Party?

Would it work to “let” her throw you a luncheon at work? Not a shower, since you don’t want the work girls to feel pressured into getting you a second shower gift, but maybe she could arrange a luncheon at a nice restaurant near work for the work girls to celebrate with you. Just one idea 🙂

A house party is someone who helps you at the wedding.  For example, they pass out the programs at the ceremony, or makes sure that your guestbook is signed when people walk in.  Some even load the gifts, guestbook and other items in your car for you at the end of the night.

I think if she wants to help with the shower then tell your Maid/Matron of Honor to give her a call. Surely she can help set-up or cook food.
