facebook is terrible for organizing formal events
your friend should have mailed you a card, if you get the physical message it's way more special.
if i actually wanted people to come to my party i would at least text message each person individually, maybe call if i have the time.

what the fuck is a wedding shower anyways? lol

I think a wedding shower is just like a regular wedding expect they get wed in a shower. I may be wrong though.


i was under the impression that a wedding shower was just like a regular wedding, but everyone is naked and they turn on all of the emergency sprinklers in the building and lather up while the bride and groom exchange vows

So like a regular wedding then

Not bad. I think wedding showers are in poor taste, tbh.

i think it is where you get to chill with the wedding party and you give the bride/groom house gifts

like a baby shower minus the baby
so does that mean they don't get wedding gifts on the day of their wedding? I personally think an event solely for gift giving is a bit shit. Asking people to turn up for the purpose of giving you a gift is tacky.

I wouldn't feel so bad. You'll go to the actual wedding right?

At first wedding shower sounded right but then I thought about it for a second and yea I've never heard of one. Closest thing that comes to mind is the rehearsal dinner but that is more formal and organized than what you described

i'm pretty sure you're thinking of a shower wedding. a wedding shower implies the main objective is the shower but to make it more enjoyable they get wed while they're at it

I've got a shower for the wedding.

If it makes you feel better, inviting people via Facebook is a poor substitute for an RSVP event.

Of course. I feel very foolish now.

I've heard of baby showers but not wedding showers. Sounds like some kind of orgy. It's a good job you missed it - otherwise you'd probably catch a bunch of STDs from all the people showering at the same time. 
I have nothing important to say

tell 'em there must have been a misunderstanding cause that's right about the hour you shower the pit with a sick ass thread

It's also known as a bridal shower.

The idea is to provide gifts the bride to help the wedding go ahead. It's a bullshit custom, really, but if this wedding doesn't go ahead, we know who's fault it is.

On a similar note a friend was lamenting to me about a friends wedding, they had "sent out" invitations to everyone via Facebook, but she had dropped Facebook no longer wanted anything to do with it.
She never knew and didn't attend, and her friend was cold to her about her not showing up, I guess the explanation of "I don't use that crap" didn't fly.

Is this a common thing? The only social media I use are forums like UG.

Just say you were sick and then no one will care you didn't go.... if they even care you didn't go.

But that's silly. Getting wed would obviously make the shower less enjoyable. Duh.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Something like a wedding shower or any kind of get together (like a bachelor party) is traditionally set up by The Best Man or a Bridesmaid.

Don't let the bride hear you say that.

Are you a jackass/douche/pussy/etc. for not going?
Depends how long you have known each other and how close you are.

not that common but if it was that important, the bride and groom shouldn't have relied on Facebook. My friend sent out Facebook invites as a 'save the date' but backed it up with paper invites which contained the full details, because you can't assume everyone will have Facebook, especially older relatives.

CodeMonk that doesn't make it any less tacky. You (might) have an engagement party, then hen and stag parties for both sides, then the wedding is where you all celebrate together and it's up to the guests to decide whether they give gifts at each stage. Putting more obligation on people with an event solely for gift giving (eg showering with gifts) is poor taste.

First I find out no one in the pit would support a baby shower and now I find out everyone hates the idea of a bridal shower.
