I know that friends and family want to celebrate and get together, and I am all for that. But whenever I have told my mother and sisters that I don't want a "shower shower" I get some very high-pitched "NO WE ARE THROWING YOU ONE!!"
DH and I just got married at the end of July, and the baby is due the end of August. I just feel like everyone just spent a bunch of money on us already, and I don't wanna do all that again. Plus, I feel super awkward opening presents in front of people.
Has anyone had or been to a shower that's doesn't have presents? How can you politely avoid that part, or is there anything fun you did in place of a shower? I'm really trying to weasel my way out of this one!
