    I feel so stupid/embarrassed. I've sent invitations to about 45 people and nothing. No rsvp's; no one even acknowledges that they've received an invitation and I'm just so confused! I pretty much planned my entire shower, as my mom has been out of town and my sister lost interest...all of my guests' meals will be paid for at the best restaurant in town, Chanel no5 and a $100 restaurant gift card are the prizes for the winners of the 2 baby shower games, favors are bottles of OPI nail polishes, I had all of the invitations custom-made, everyone gets their own mini cake, rather than a slice, and we're serving bottomless champagne. I'll be devastated if no one shows! Is it because it is for ladies only and no kids are allowed? I mean, could ppl be offended? Do women have to bring their children/men everywhere? I'm so confused! Anyone in the same boat?

    I so wanted a ladies only shower, but my Mom and sisters pushed me to make it co-ed they said people would not come if they could not bring their others. Mine is Saturday, so I will see if they were right. Hope yours go well hun.

    Thanks ladies! I haven't called anyone yet. The RSVP date is the day before Thanksgiving and the shower is the following Saturday. I'm trying to give it some time but I'm just shocked that out of all those ppl, I don't even have ONE reply. I'd even appreciate regrets at this point! Something!

    & queenlavera, I hope you enjoy your shower! Congrats!

    I would suggest calling folks. With an RSVP around the holidays, it might of slipped their mind, especially of they will be traveling. Good luck.

    It may be that they are planning on coming, but haven't rsvp'd. Seems people just don't like to do it these days! OR it could be that they are just waiting until closer to time to rsvp?

    I don't know, but I bet you will have guests hun. It sounds like such a great shower! Wishing you the best!

    I have learned no body rsvp's these days. All of my friends that had showers, no one rsvp and still had tons of people come.
    I think they want to have the decision till the very end if they can end up making the shower. Instead of saying they will come, and not be able to

    I would call now to get RSVP's, I started checking in with people a week before the RSVP date and didn't pay for the dinner until I had a final head count. xx :hugs:
