Raise your hand if you hate bridal showers! I have the big family shower tomorrow and I'm totally dreading it. One grandma ALWAYS has to out do everyone and then feelings get hurt. It's not that I don't appreciate the gifts, but I just feel completely awkward about the whole tradition.

Dear Bride,

I hear you.

Just suck it up and go through with it. Consider it good training for Life.

Corporate "team building" exercises are just as excruciating. (And you can't get out of them, either!)

I never could stand the idea of a shower. I simply announced firmly, to anyone who raised the idea of one, that I would decline to attend if there were a shower. It sounds like it's a little too late for you to take that approach, though. You have my sympathy!
