Are your showers scheduled?

I have a work shower scheduled for next week, but other than that, no dates have been set. Obviously, I know I am not entitled to anything, but I know both sides want to throw one...it's just getting a date down. I'm getting worried because it's getting closer, and we've really got nothing!

Re: Are your showers scheduled?

  • We just confirmed nov 6th. That seems to be a popular weekend for a lot of us on this forum. My thought for that were it's right before all the holiday craziness. after the holidays is just cutting it too close, and as my mom put it what ever we don't get at the shower people can get us as christmas gifts. DH and I are just asking for stuff for the baby for christmas since we don't want and or need anything ourselves.

  • Mine is scheduled for November 6th! My boss plans on having a small gathering here but I assume that will be right before I leave in December.

  • Mine is set for Nov 27th, it's for both my side and DH's side.  My work shower will probably be sometime in December, not sure yet.

  • I have two- one schedule for Nov 19 and one for Jan 7. Neither of the hosts brought up a shower until very recently, and I was worried for the same reason as you. But there is still time! :)

  • Don't worry, I just scheduled mine. It was going to be November 13th, but then I noticed I hadn't even registered yet and wouldn't have time to do that before invitations needed to go out. So November 20th it is. I'm registering this weekend so we can send the invitations on Monday.

    I have met with the restaurant though where we're having it so I've gotten that step done.

    Also, I agree what PP said - I didn't want it after Thanksgiving because it would be too close to Christmas. And I love the idea that if there are leftover things on the registry they can be Christmas presents!

  • I kind of have no idea when my shower is...I had two friends ask to throw it back when we announced the pregnancy in July. Neither of them have mentioned it again since then. I recently had a third friend ask when I'm having it, when I said "who knows?" she said "well we will plan it for early December!" --- so i guess that's when it is? i still do not know if it is just her planning it or all the other friends in my circle. it's weird. pfft.
  • Yup, Hubby almost spilled the beans (yes)! Lol, he mentioned it will be in the city and that the "HALL" had already been booked! (Gotta love him)

  • My first shower is with friends and my family next weekend and we are supposed to be having one with DH Dad's side that his cousins all know about..but no one will tell us when it is, so kind of confused on that situation lol

  • Not that I know of.  I'm in the same boat.  My mom told me months ago she wanted to throw me one in early November, but she hasn't mentioned anything since.  My friends and family from church and work keep asking me when it is and the truth is, I don't even know if we will have one.  I've already registered so on the plus side I can at least get the completion discount and get everything ourselves :)

    this is me too...my family is all out of town and he has mentioned his sister doing something but I havent heard anything so I have been doing surveys online and buying things with my amazon GC and then we can always use the completion discount!

  • I had one last weekend because I didn't have time to travel back to my parents home and later on I didn't want to travel that far anyway.  So one down and one to go! 

    The other is scheduled for 11/13.  I scheduled that with my inlaws a long time ago because all of our weekends are a bit nutty, so finding a time early on was important.  I even have the list with addresses to them already.  We'll be having it at our house as an open house type of thing, many people haven't been to our house and we didn't want to transport stuff.

  • Mine is November 19...and I'm not done registering yet. EEEK!!! We have only registered online at one place but I would really like to go in store too for those who do not like ordering things online as well as register at one more place since the nearest Target (where we have registered) is 45 min away from our hometown. Where does all the time fly off to!?!?

  • I'm pretty sure I'm not having one.  My MIL & most of DH's family live in FL (we're in CO), my mom won't do it (anxiety/people issues), my SIL & my friends haven't mentioned anything (and neither SIL or my friends really know each other to be able to pull off a surprise shower).

  • Invites have been sent out for Nov 5th.
  • Invites were sent out and the shower is November 13th at 2pm.  I didn't have a large group to invite so if no one shows up- more dessert for me! That's all I know about this shower anyway, my SIL is making everything a surprise but asked me what desserts I would like there...

  • Mine are scheduled for mid-November, but that's because I will have to travel back home to attend them.  My family is full of procrastinators so if I still lived in Chicago I would probably have no idea when they would happen.

  • At the moment, mine isn't officially scheduled. The 2 dates that they're looking at is November 20th or December 11th. While Nov 20th is what I'd like, I think they're going with Dec 11th. I'm just a little nervous 'cause my c/s will probably be scheduled between Christmas and New Year's
