    Wish me luck. I fought this one tooth and nail but totally lost. I didn't want a bridal shower at all 1. because I get anxiety about this kind of stuff I don't feel very comfortable being the center of attention. and 2. I just felt bad that people were spending all this money to come to our DW and than to have them spend more on bridal gifts just makes me feel bad.

    Nevertheless my friends and family insisted that either I comply with their wishes to have a bridal shower and I be let in on everything or I could refuse a bridal shower and they would surprise me with one anyways.

    Well I hate surprises so I decided to be "OK" with the bridal shower thing.
    Alright so here we are the big day and I'm so nervous!

            jackie, my advice is have a glass of champagne right beforehand

            i felt the same way about showers, and was told whether i wanted them or not i was getting them (already had one in mexico with FI's family & friends, and I have two more to go here in the US in june!), so i figured by complying i could cut down on my anxiety at least with the surprise element. my stepmom made a genious suggestion that she and my friend host one of my showers at my new condo, so that not all the attention will be on me because a lot of people coming wont have already seen the new place. i thought this was great, and agreed to it right away. whatever you do, just remember to breathe and try to have a little fun!

            jackie, i agree with maura! a quick shot or glass or champagne downed right before will do wonders for the nerves. try to have fun and dont forget, we want to see pics later!
