- Wedding: March 2014
My friend’s shower ended up falling on a weekend that I would be out of town with my family. I didn’t go to the shower and I was her Maid/Matron of Honor. She knew about the shower, so I was able to discuss it with her beforehand. I felt bad that I had to miss it, but family is family. I got her a nice gift, wrote her a note and left it with her grandmother. But I went to her bachelorette party and of course, to her wedding.
Only you know how your friend will react to you not being there, if you end up not going. Perhaps you could try speaking to the people throwing the shower and letting them know about your plans. If nothing can be worked out and you miss the shower, I agree with the other posters who’ve said to buy her a gift, write her a note and maybe call her the day of.
