Bridal shower

Surina, on 25/September/2017 at 08:21 Posted in Before the wedding

I am just looking for thoughts on this subject. i was married before but i have been divorced for 24 yrs.( got married really young was only married for 3 yrs). the life that i have right now has no people in it from that part of my life. any way off should i be expecting my maid of honor to have a bridal shower for me or should i not even have a thought in my head about having one?

thank you all for your time and input.

    It's apparent to me that you are questioning whether a divorced woman should have a bridal shower or if that is only for 1st time brides. I think that in our modern times, no one would consider it an issue. I wouldn't be expecting it, but if you feel you'd like a shower, express that to your MOH and see how she responds. Perhaps you can ask her if she thinks it would be appropriate. You'll soon find out if she's interested in giving you a shower.

    As others have said, if you want one, go for it, but if you don’t, it’s not a big deal. I didn’t have one and no one complained.

    Ya if you want to have one, then have one! For sure. But I wouldn't make it an expectation on your MOH though.

    If you would like to have a shower thrown just hint at it to your MOH, I have told my girls what weekend works for me as I'm moving before our wedding. and all my MOH said was for me to pick a day.

    I would never expect one, but if someone wants to throw you one and you'd like one, then absolutely go for it! I don't think having been married before means you cannot or should not have one.

    Have a shower if you want one. That's all that matters in this case.

    If you want a shower then have a shower! Its your wedding you get to make the decisions, especially about something like a bridal shower! I see absolutely no reason why you wouldnt be able to have one.

    It sounds like you would want a bridal shower, so maybe let her know ideas you have and offer to help out! I don't think that because you have been married before it should stop you from having the bridal experience!
