Do you want a shower? If you do you need to speak up. Ask your MOH if she would like to throw one and mention that she could ask your FMIL for help if she wants to. My MOH is organizing my shower with the help of my bridesmaids… do you have any Bridesmaids? Ultimately the shower doesn’t have to be a surprise… and you wouldn’t register for a surprise shower anyway. You sound kind of bummed out about it so if you want one just ask for one. Your FMIL might assume your family or bridesmaids got it under control. And it may have not occured to your MOH/bridesmaids that they are suppose to be organizing it– lets face it, until we are brides we really don’t read all about wedding stuff.

I agree that there is NOTHING wrong with bringing up the idea of a shower with your MOH or your FMIL. If it’s important to do you, why shouldn’t you get a shower!? I also see nothing wrong with your sister throwing you a shower. It seems like old, out of date etiquette rules that say your family can’t throw you a shower!

You should definitely do a registry either way so that people know what to get you for wedding gifts, too. Even guests that are out of town can ship gifts to you!

I also wanted to add that my BM and MOH live states away… but they are still organizing the shower. They can still call around to get the venue, if they need me to go look at it, I will and take pictures to send to them. They don’t have to live close by to send out and prepare the invites, order a cake etc. Most of it can really be done on the phone. So don’t worry about the fact that they are far away.
