Here is the problem: my future inlaws and I live in Central Pennsylvania. My one bridesmaid lives near DC, and the other lives in Philly. My mom and dad, and maid of honor, and many other almost-family people live up in New Hampshire.
I know I am not supposed to throw one for myself, and I know I should just let it happen…but I don’t see how it will work logistically…I visit my parents often and if my mom wanted to throw one for me, she would do it this summer or next winter. But…like I don’t understand them at all. How does it work? Who is supposed to be in charge of it? Do I need to talk to people about it at all?

I’m going through the same thing…my mom and sister (maid of honor) live in Oregon and can’t really plan a shower from that far away (since they don’t know if they’d be able to make the trip)…I’m hoping my bridesmaids or Future Mother-In-Law plan one for me!

@girlfromwollaston: I just feel like I should say something because I want everyone to know I’m okay with whatever happens!! Ha. I worry that my future mother in law will expect my mother to plan it while my mother expects her to plan it…and then I won’t have one. But it doesn’t really matter to me, just it would be nice if my friends planned something for me. That’s never been done before!

It’s way too early to bring it up at this point. Most showers are held in the final months leading up to the wedding. They may already be thinking about it but it’s really a bit premature to discuss at this point.
