My Main Shower, at least, isn’t a surprise at all. I gave them the colors that I wanted to use and the theme. I also helped with picking the date 🙂

I had stated I wanted nothing to do with a surprise shower. I HATE surprises (my ring wasnt a surprise nor are my x-mas gifts)

So they told me the date. Ya im a spoiled brat!

Mine isn’t a surprise either but I wish I had input on the colors/theme.  But I should just be pleased that someone is throwing me a shower, right?

FMIL called me and said “We need to have your shower soon!  Get registered!”

@stephinPA: I really wanted to wear a certain dress, so it was important to me that the colors went along with the dress. Also, I originally wanted a Japanese inspired wedding, but FI has never been to Japan, so It made no sense. So, I knew that I wanted my shower to reflect this about me. Now I get a Cherry Blossom/Japanese themed shower with turquoise, like my dress.

my shower wasn’t a surprise at all. MOH and i had decided we were going to do a laid back shower at our house with close friends/family. FMIL found out and offered a few weeks later to throw me a huge one. i was the liasion between FMIL and MOH in the beginning, so i knew about it from the get-go. regardless, it was perfect, even tho it wasnt my wishes… and i’m thankful to have a FMIL who was kind enough to offer me a formal shower at a hall

I will probably know about mine. I’m sure my MOH will keep some details a secret but I expect I’ll know the basics.

During one of our BM meetings i.e. a night at a wine bar : ) we discussed dates for the shower and bachelorette party…it was just a given and we wanted to make sure everyone could attend.

I planned my sister’s shower and sent her an invite =) I ran the theme I had in mind by her before hand to make sure that she was OK with it.She also knew the date well in advance b/c she had to request leave since she is in the Navy.

On a side note: I included an insert that gave her lingerie size just in case guests wanted to give a more “personal” gift. I left that insert out of her invite so it was a surprise when all of the sexy panties and nighties were unwrapped…LOL. She LOVED it. She got a good mix of items from her wedding registry and lingerie so she was pretty pleased.
