SO I've been going over this in my head a bit and I'm a tad hesitant on the whole bridal shower situation.. I feel like I have a kind of, strange family situation..
I'm an only child, my parents are divorced and my bridesmaids are pretty much spread all over the midwest. I have two cousins getting married the same year as me, and their mother is my only aunt, and I certainly wouldn't expect her to pay for/host a shower for me. And, to be quite honest, the whole idea of the shower just doesn't really appeal to me. I've got a fair amount of friends/relatives, but none of them really know eachother, and there's a little bad blood floating around in my family.
My question here is, since I dont have this huge group of people that are dying to throw me a shower, and a weird family situation, is it OK to just nix the bridal shower? Its honestly not my thing, and I think the whole day would just feel a smidge awkward.
Please let me know if you have alternatives or advice. Thanks.
