@NikkiKillpretty:  Did you TELL the bride you were planning a shower? I know it’s traditional for the MOH to do it, but I’ve noticed a lot more instances of family hosting them lately. Maybe she just didn’t know anyone was planning one and went forward on it.

@NikkiKillpretty:  Did you tell anyone you were planning anything? I have been MOH three times and have never been the main hostess for a shower because the MOB or aunts wanted to do it and I felt that it probably meant more to them. I don’t think that she had doubts about you hosting it- if anything she probably thought she was being nice.

Honestly, I would just be happy that you’re off the hook. I would just reach out to her mom and ask what you can do to help.

My aunt and cousins are planning my shower. The bridesmaids didn’t have any solid plans and my aunt offered so I said sure. I think you’re off the hook and don’t need to plan another one. Just plan the bachelorette and be happy you have less planning!

I’d just roll your enthusiasm into the bachelorette party!

If you want to still plan something, why not plan a bridesmaids’ luncheon? You don’t have to book a venue for it, just make a reservation for brunch at a cute restaurant. Make it informal and/or casual, and invite just the bridesmaids and the bride. Plan it ahead of time so the other bms can make it. And wedding talk is fair game! And then just have the bms split the bride’s bill or something. The bride will appreciate the gesture, and I’m sure she’d appreciate some friend time to vent/talk about the wedding with her best girlfriends. And it will give the bridesmaids an opportunity to get to know each other (if they don’t already).
