    I hate going to showers! Thankfully I didn't/ haven't had one. (One might pop up unexpectedly though so I won't be too confident.)

    Making things out of toilet paper and the silly little games is too much. Some seem to love it, but honestly, that is so not for me!

    I feel for you Jen. I hope your family really listens to you. I can't believe they haven't caved yet.

    Do what makes YOU happy. I mean really, aren't they planning this for that reason? To honor you and your new bride status?

    A group cocktail party sounds like fun. Talk them into that. So much better than making a bouquet out of bows and toilet paper veils. haha
    Happily married since 2008

      to appease my female relatives, my sister is going to throw a non-shower where they will join me for tea at the drake hotel in chicago (which is super fun and only about $30/pp) the week before i leave for mexico. so much easier, more fun and no pressure to open gifts in front of strangers.
      ditto ... abbie nailed it! i had forgotten about the toilet paper dress ... those games ARE terrible! i'm in complete agreement ... i also made it clear to my friends and family that i didn't want a shower either! just not my thing! i think you've gotten good advice from all the girls - and you sound a lot better! i know that YOU know that it's just because your family and friends just want to celebrate with you --- so, a nice cocktail party would be nice (and your FI can be there, too)!

      BTW Maura --- the Drake is one of my favorite hotels ever! my FI lived in Chicago, i've been missing it a bit lately! (and if you know anyone looking for a really nice condo to buy - we have one on the corner of superior and orleans!)

      good luck Jen - let us know how it works out!

      my friends did not plan any stupid games, I think you should make that very clear that you don't want any games.
      Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!
