3 Showers...WTF!!??

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone!!!! I am going to visit my mom this weekend and talk to her about it....


I like the idea of the mothers getting together and throwing one...but then their tastes are so different and FMIL is so overpowering and my mom is so laid back and let's people walk all over her...so I'm not sure how that would work...


I also like the idea of giving all the phone numbers and telling them all to figure it out w/ each other! :)


As far as bridesmaids, it's my sister only and she would just help my mom with the one she throws if that happens.


I just want to talk to my mom in person and see who she plans on inviting and tell her that the friends will be going to the one my friends are throwing and if there is enough people then we can have 2 but otherwise maybe she can just help the girls with ideas, or money, whatever....


We will see...

I TOTALLY know what you mean!


We are having a Couples Shower (thrown by Best Man & his wife) ... then my sister is throwing one up in DC for my older relatives and the few friends I have up that way ... and I have 2 friends who were planning one for here in SC.


The two friends wanted to do separate showers even though I told them I really didn't need anything else ... and I finally just had to tell them they rally needed to do them together as one ... b/c like you, I couldn't expect my friends to go to all these separate showers -- and quite frankly I don't have the friggin' time on weekends for all this crap.


I would see if something can be combined to take some of the stress off of you.


Perhaps the families can throw a Couples Shower, or the Stock the Bar Shower, so that it's about the two of you and not just you.


My brother has a Lawn & Garden Couples Shower when they got married and it was awesome.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
