I just had a question about bridal showers. I am a bridesmaid in my BIL’s wedding, and I wasn’t sure about throwing a bridal shower for Future Sister-In-Law. They’ve already lived together for a while, and I believe this will be her 2nd or 3rd marriage in recent years. I know there are no “rules”, but in this situation, would there generally be another shower? Also, if so, if I’m the only one in the bridal party in the state, does the responsilibility rest on me to host one?
Thanks in advance for your response! 🙂

I would talk to the maid of honor. Does the bride want a shower?

I would ask the bride what she wants. If she’s been married a couple times then maybe not, however, is this you’re brothers first marriage? If so, then she should probably have one. It’s really suppose to be about the woman in the family meeting and not a gift grab as we all tend to see it.

No one ever HAS to throw a shower. Personally, I would never throw a shower for someone who has been married 2 times and lived together for awhile. (Like, what’s the point? I’m sure she has every household item that she needs! If she doesn’t need *things* but you want to throw a party, then don’t call it a “shower.”)

@JoJo Bananas: Thanks for your response! Honestly, I haven’t talked to her about it yet. She just recently asked me to be a bridesmaid. I’m not even 100% sure who the Maid/Matron of Honor is yet. I’ve never been a bridesmaid before, and I have no idea what I’m doing or should be doing.. I’m so lost!
