@MOHSophie:  I think you need to get with the MIL, and grandma and seriously ask them about the financial cost of all this. They can’t except someone your age to be able to affored all this alone. It’s not rude to ask them to pay or help pay for the shower them seemed to have forced on you.

No one should EVER expect ONE person to pay for all this. Thats just asking way too much of anyone.

@HelleCat:  Exactly!

You def need to get in contact with FMIL and Grandma and chat about this a see what they are thinking. Maybe they plan to help pay but arent sure how to go about it or they could be crazy and think these things juat magically happen haha.

You could even start the discussion by email just to get the ball rolling if you’re uncomfortable calling or in person to start.

As awkward as it feels, I’d just get in touch with the mom and grandma and ask them if they are planning on/would like to co-host with you. Co-hosting implies they are chipping in financially.  I don’t think the entire price should be on you.  Showers are expensive!

My sisters are hosting mine (they felt awkard asking the bms for $ too even though I told them to go the co-hosting route) but my mom and aunt are chipping in, as well.
