Shower(s) HELP!

Just wondering how many showers you girls are having. I have a really large family and quite a few close friends. I really would prefer to just have one shower (I don't like the party being all about me!) and I don't want my BMs to have to give up a Sat. or Sun. twice for the sake of a shower! But my mom is insistant that I have two (I have had two people offer, my MOH and my God Mother). She heard that 15-20 people is the appropriate size for a shower. She also thinks I would be offending someone if I suggest that we combine them. Any advice appreciated!

I think one is enough, but I know a lot of girls here have 3+, which I think is excessive.  If they are in the same state, I would combine them.

Sorry, but this one isn't up to you. You just have to accept the generosity of those who offer to throw you showers and show up with a smile to as many parties as they want to throw. Also, your BM don't have to attend them all, they are adults and if there are too many, they will just turn down the invites to the ones they can't attend

as 1 of her bms, i was invited to all 3 showers my gf had - but i only gifted them once - one was a for a younger crowd - friends and cousins; another for older family - and more for her mom; and then they had a co-ed shower...all in a matter of 2 months


i've already told everyone that i dont want one - altho we may acquiesce and do one that his mom wants to throw us...

I only had one- we had planned on 20-28 people too- but only 18 came, so thats another thing to think about- maybe not everyone will really be able to go...  Just a thought!


My friend had two- one MAIN one, and she had a small one for her mothers close & work friends.  Another idea for you!


Mine was a bit much- my MOH (sisters) went above and beyond and everyone really came together to make it VERY fun and memorable- I couldn't imagine having 2 of them like that....  So much work...


I have also heard of two- when people have had regular showers, and then another more naughty- like a lingerie one/ passion party for the younger crowd...


HTH!

I only had one and it was the Sunday before our wedding.  There were 17 guests.  It was tough for guests to come to events two weekends in a row.  Madness! 


I was in full wedding planning mode at the shower.  I came up with the concepts, colors, place setting design, fllowers, etc.  My sisters weren't as passionate (anal) about it as I was.  :)   After all was said and done, they were relieved I was involved.   They were both busy and left all the details to the last minute.
