The thought of being ambushed by a bridal shower stresses me out. I have never heard of a bride being unaware of what date her shower would be. I would definitelty expect to know.

theshannondee:  ditto. Just ask them when it will be, I think it is pretty standard to know!

Most bridal showers aren’t a surprise, since the details of the date (that accomodates everyone involved) and who to invite need to come from the bride.

But, everyone is different!

Why exactly would the date of your bridal shower be a surprise? Is this something that most people do? You either just suck it up and ask them or you have to be caught off guard the day of. It all seems a little silly to me though.

Who is hosting your shower ? If wearing a particular outfit for your shower is that important to you, then I would simply ask the hostess to tell you maybe, the day before or the morning of, so you can dress accordingly.

BurlapnLace:  WOW, I am in the same boat!  I literally am such a control freak, I went out and got an outfit with one of my BM’s, asking the whole time, “Is this too formal?  Is this fun enough?  Which suits the venue best?”  I have packed a bag with my outfit, hair products and jewelry ready to go, and my FH is responsible for packing the bag in the car without my knowledge, on the day of the party.  I also put him under strict orders to make sure I don’t look haggard before I get in the car, which I can relate, on the weekends, is certainly a chore in and of itself!  I’m sure I’ll find out at some point what’s going on, because duh.. but it is fun to at least try, right?  Even if you come off as a crazy control freak, like me 🙂

You want to control all these little aspects before your shower, but you don’t want to know when the actual shower will be? Please report back and let us know how that all turns out.

BurlapnLace:  I totally feel you!!  Honestly, it’s awkward, but for me at least, it’s worth it to look back on all the photos on all the different social media and see something nice, rather than a hot mess haha.  But, to each her own. 🙂 Good luck!!!!

you have a few options –

1) from now till the wedding never leave the house without full makeup and a dress on

2) just ask and get over the surprise part (which is already a little silly since you know its one of three weekends… I can’t imagine when you get invited to your great aunt gertrudes 90th birthday that no one has even met or mentioned its going to be too hard to figure out)

3) just go in what you are wearing and be ok with it
