Bridal shower???

I am just wondering if a bridal shower is a must or if I can skip it? With everything going on with Covid right now, I don’t feel like having a bridal shower would be a smart thing to do. Plus my family would be traveling in for a bridal shower and I don’t want to have to worry about their health and safety. I would love to hear good alternatives to a bridal shower.

    No pre-wedding event is a necessity. As far as an alternative, a bridal shower is a gift giving event, I'm not sure there's anything else that will replace it.

    It’s not a necessity. If you don’t want one that’s fine, however like the person mentioned above, that’s an event where you get gifts

    I agree with you. I was in the mood at first to have a bridal shower but now with covid I changed my mind completely and don’t really want one either.

    It's definitely not necessary. If someone insists on throwing one for you, or if you want to have one safely, it's possible to do it virtually.

    Nothing is required but people will host them for you and it's generally considered rude to decline. It can be setup as a Zoom event.

    It isn't something that you need to do. The pre-wedding parties are not a need. You could have a zoom bridal shower if you are looking for an alternative.

    You could skip a bridal shower. Pre wedding events are never a must

    Jana, I would honestly be surprised if someone threw me a bridal shower. None of my family or wedding party seems interested in planning one. They only want to attend one. It is just so much stress for me with trying to plan a bridal shower, bachelorette party, wedding, etc plus my fiancé and I are trying to get a place of our own.

    No. It’s not necessary at all. Even pre-COVID, I didn’t want a shower or a bachelorette party. All I want is for our guests to attend our wedding and celebrate that special day with us. Basically, I guess I just don’t desire to interrupt their schedules with a bunch of unnecessary parties (engagement party... bridal shower... bachelorette party, etc ). It’s a lot even without a pandemic.

    Same here, the only thing is I know our families are not going to want to give us money. I just don’t know if we should still create a registry? Our families will be the type to get offended if they can’t give us anything. I just don’t feel like having a bridal shower.

    Even pre-covid, I wasn't planning on doing a bridal shower. Not my vibe, and definitely not necessary.

    I’m in the same boat as you! Can’t decide if I want to have a shower or not and I would hate to spend money on an event I’ll have to end up cancelling. I might skip it. It’s not the end of the world I guess.
