Sometimes the mom wants to throw one and the husband's family wants to throw yet another one. That was my SIL's case. She lives in a different state. She came up here for one shower, and had another in her state because her dh family insisted on throwing her one there (even though they came up to the first one).
Other times it's family throws one and work throws a 2nd one.
Most get one.
I'm having 3. One given by my friends where I live. One in SC where my mom lives and other one at work. The one at work and in SC will be much smaller than the first one.
I think it just depends on how many people you are going to invite, where people live in proximity to you, etc.
Just had a shower this weekend with my family and friends... fiance and I have another in two weeks with his family and friends 3 hours south of here. There probably would've been 50-60 people if we hadn't split it up- EEP!
I'll probably end up with 3 showers. One with just my close friends - about 15 people, one from my family about 30, and then work will probably do something I'm sure as we have for others in the past.
Well, it depends on the situation. Usually multiple showers are more of a geographic issue than anything else. For example, I had three bridal showers. One was for my family, one was for DH's family (they live 3+ hours away so a joint shower wouldn't have been convenient for anyone but me), and one was a couples' shower for our friends. I also was lucky enough to have a surprise shower at work.
For the baby, we're only having one shower. MIL is having a a "welcome baby" party later this summer on their side of the state for DH's extended family that can't make our baby shower here.
