For those who are NOT having a bridal party.....

Recommended Posts

is anyone still throwing you a shower or a bachorlorette party? I'm having a DW in Jamaica and i've decided to not have a bridal party. I had to throw and pay for my own shower. I'm just wondering what's gonna happen for the bachorlorette party.......i kinda wanna have one but unfortunately, I don't think any of my "so-called" friends have given me or my wedding a second thought!!

Do you have family that lives close to you? I'm surprised to hear you threw your own shower.. I've never heard of anyone doing that.. did your guests say anything to you about it? I'm sorry you're in such a funky position with no close friends stepping up.

i only had my sister stand up for me and she was in no kind of financial situation to do much for us, but we had a lot of other family members help out with throwing showers and stuff like that. the only thing i had to do on my own really was my bachelorette.

Here's the thing: I'm an only child. Both of my parents are from Jamaica and most of my family is spread out in Miami, NY, and JA. Yep, I had to throw my own wedding shower....how pathetic is that!!! No one said anything to me, they came LATE and then ate and left (no one even stayed to help me clean up).

 

 

I really want a bacholorette party, but I don't want to have to ASK anyone to throw it for me.

This is a tough spot to be in but I say if you were good enough to throw your own shower then just bite the bullet & organize your own bach party! From planning this wedding I've learned that if we wait for people/our so called good friends, to do things for us, they'll never get done. I know you don't want to have to ask anyone to do it for you so maybe this is the best option. Also, at least if you throw it, you'll wind up doing what you want to do as opposed to going someplace that you wouldn't have really liked.
Why not give it some more time & see what your friends do. Maybe they'll surprise you & get it together.

I agree... hopefully w/ time your friends will step up to the plate... but if they don't, and you want to have one then you should definitely go ahead and make sure you get to enjoy one :)

I am in a similar position. Most of my family and friends live out of my area and I don't have anyone I can really rely on to throw me a shower or bachelorette party. I may end up just planning them myself, but I can't decide if that's just going to make me feel like a loser. I have found that some people just aren't as excited about me getting married as I am. Wouldn't it be nice if they were?

= ( I'm sorry to hear you are in a pickle regarding this. Would it be worth it for you to travel to where a close friend or family member lives? Might be fun to go away for a weekend, blow off some steam, and party with someone close. I don't see anything wrong with throwing yourself a bach party. But IMHO I'm not sure if I would want to celebrate with people who couldn't be bothered to step up for me.

I'm in the same boat - no one lives close by. People have talked about a shower, but I will be traveling to the west coast.

 

Its difficult, too, because I don't want to invite anyone to the shower that won't be going to the wedding so that gets me a headcount of, what, 7?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
