    I would pretend to be surprised. Anything else would not be gracious.  Almost everyone I know has had the surprise ruined for them.  I did, my mom did, my Aunt did, my sister did, my BFF did.  Usually brides figure it when it is before it actually happens anyway.

    If you feel like your surprise has been ruined, why would you even consider ruining their surprise?

    Although you may know the date, that’s all you know, so you can still be actually surprised by the details- how they get you there, where it is, what is the theme and decor etc.

    I can see being a bit disappointed, but no need for melodrama. As a pp has said, many surprises are blown before the shower.

    That’s a bummer. But you’re still going to have a great time. I would pretend to be surprised, why bum everyone else out? You’ll have other surprises in the future.

    @smrlovingrl:  I didn’t know they made surprise bridal showers.  What if you weren’t available on the date?  I’ve heard of the details being a surprise, but not the date.

    @smrlovingrl:  my mom told my MOH she wanted my shower to be a surprise.

    my MOH asked me if this was ok.  I said I didn’t care either way.

    my mom threw me a fantastic 29 1/2 surprise birthday party.  i was totally surprised.

    i’m not sure how this is going to work out.  when my MOH was asking me dates for my b-party, she said i probably could figure out when the shower is.

    i am anxious about it because things come up and i’m afraid to plan things.
