Many people have told me to have a bridal shower but I do not want one because I don't want people to feel like they have to buy me gifts. I also hate being the center of attention. My FMIL told me that she is going to throw me one anyway because I will be her only dil ever and she and her close friends (whom I have not met) want to "shower" me with gifts and love. She lives two states away which will be very inconvenient for my friends and family but I don't want to turn her down. I only have about 5 close friends and three of them said they are willing to come. What do I do?
How many of you brides did not want or have a bridal shower? Why?
