    I would talk to your Maid/Matron of Honor and see how she feels about keeping the date or changing it. She is the one that has and is putting a lot of work into it.

    Keep the shower as is. If people aren’t able to make, it won’t be the end of the world. You and the Maid/Matron of Honor can hang out at least, and neither of you will have to do more work.

    I would suggest getting her to make the decision.  It is a lot of work and she’s probably already done most of it.  Plus the guests have made arrangements to come too.  So it isn’t just putting her out.  I would say have it and who can make it can.

    I wouldn’t reschedule this close to the day unless your Maid/Matron of Honor is having panic attacks over the possible snowstorm. As long as your guests know that it’s ok if they can’t make it. I think spending an afternoon with your Maid/Matron of Honor eating delicious food (and maybe watching a funny wedding movie?) while it snows outside could be quite a nice way to spend some time actually!!!

    I wouldn’t reschedule–you don’t know what the weather will be doing. Leave it up to your Maid/Matron of Honor.

    I agree with the others – ask your Maid/Matron of Honor and do whatever she is comfortable with! Or if you really want to reschedule and your Maid/Matron of Honor will have to re buy some food maybe you could offer to help pay?

    I’m in the same boat. I have my shower planned for this weekend and we’re supposed to be getting a huge storm! And I also wasn’t up for a shower, but really wasn’t given a choice in the matter, as my FI’s family went ahead and planned one. I hate the be the center of attention, and a lot of people would have to travel, so I really wasn’t keen on the idea. But, now that it’s getting closer my nerves and apprehension have mostly gone away. We decided to go ahead, despite the weather, but advised people not to travel if it wasn’t safe and to check the weather for the entire route.

    I would continue with the shower and support your Maid/Matron of Honor. Regardless of anyone’s thoughts or oppinions, it sounds like she’s put a lot of time and effort into planning this shower for you because she cares about you. Especially with food having already been purchased, I would go ahead and just have guests check the weather and let them know you’ll understand if they can’t make it.

    if your Maid/Matron of Honor is the host it is all up to her and noone else. Speak to her, if she says you have no option well then thats it.   What business do boys have in the shower anyway? lol

    Could you push it back just to Sunday? That would give folks a day to get out from under the snow but still allow your Maid/Matron of Honor to use all the food she bought…Just a thought! That sucks tho, I’m sorry!
