      If someone is wanting to throw you one then you should!  But only is you will be somewhat comfortable with it.  These people want to celebrate your upcoming marriage with you.  You are special to them and they want to celebrate you.

        I figure, if people don't want to come, they don't have to. And if they are worried about the cost, they could always get you something small, or nothing at all. I'd just avoid inviting everyone you know. Bridal showers with >10 people always seem impersonal to me.

          My sister wants to give me a shower but I dont want her to ask for money or presents is that ok? I really like the idea of getting together and celebrating my wedding but I feel these people will be spending enough going to Cancun for the wedding. My sis suggests she asks people to bring what they want for the kitchen. What do you think? 

          Nan and Erik forever!!!

            I'm not going to have a shower. I don't think it's necessary.

              I felt the same way but was convinced to have a shower after realizing that there was a lot of family and friends who couldn't make it to the wedding and wanted to be involved in the shower to make me getting married more "real". haha. Being the center of attention is not my favorite thing but it wasn't that bad because my sisters had activities planned and I never felt like I had to put on a show for everyone...very relaxing day. I would say have one to add to your life experiences!

                I just had my bridal shower this past Saturday.  My mother never gave me a choice in the matter! I was having one no matter what!


                I had a great time and very appreciative of all the people who came and gave gifts.  Even though some people will not be at my Mexican wedding everyone who came to my shower will be at my AHR.

                    I am definitely not having a bridal shower...I too feel like it would be too much to ask of people. Although, I've always thought it was too much regardless of where your wedding is to have people buy you a wedding gift & a shower gift, and maybe a bachelorette gift too--just always felt over indulgent somehow, even if you are paying for people's dinners at the wedding... Just my opinion! :)

                      My fiance and I are doing a DW in Nov. 2011, just the two of us. I am getting a ton of mixed ideas from friends and family about a shower. I am not sure if it is appropriate to have a shower...since no one is invited to our DW (we want it to be intimate, just the two of us). We are having an AHR upon our return and inviting everyone, approximately 100 guests. So, is it okay to have a shower, being that people won't be at our actual wedding, but will be invited to an AHR to celebrate our union upon our arrival home?? I am so confused!! The DW was supposed to be less stressful! ha
