    It’s fine. I don’t get the “can’t be hosted by a family member” thing–I’ve NEVER been to a shower that wasn’t hosted by a member of the family, usually the MOB. Mine’s being hosted by my grandma, FSMIL, her mother, and FSIL (and possibly also my bridesmaids).

    I think it’s fine to put the sister’s name since she’s co-hosting it!

    I think it’s fine to have it hosted by all of you! In my circle it’s super common to have to shower hosted by the MOH/bridesmaids, so I don’t see anything wrong with it. Honestly, the only person I would find strange as the host would be the bride! I think you guys are fine to out the MOH on there. :]

    @Honey-Bee: I think having MOH then the rest of the names will be fine.


    My mom is hosting my shower. I’m sure the etiquette snobs will have a field day with that.

    @Honey-Bee:  My mother is hosting mine and has hosted my sister’s and SIL’s too. It’s how it works in my family.

    I say – list that sister!

    My sisters are 2 of my bridesmaids  & are mainly the ones planning my shower. They sent out a beautiful invite at the bottom it says hosted by the bridesmaids. The same wording was used for there bridal showers.

    why can’t it be hosted by “loved ones”? why have all of those names on the invite?
