    Don't let her. It looks selfish. : (0 votes)
    Let her, but tell her to put "No gifts" on the invitations. : (0 votes)

    belleindigo:  Plenty of brides have MOH’s who are sisters, and have bridal showers. I don’t see why there would be a problem with your sister hosting one for you.

    She’s the MoH, I think it’s fine.

    belleindigo:  I hosted my sister’s bridal shower because I was her MOH- I think that’s fairly common. Don’t sweat it- there are more important things to worry about!

    It’s okay for your sister to host a shower for you.  It’s just generally frowned upon for your mother to throw you a shower.

    WHo are the many people who think this is rude?

    In my social circle/area, it’s very common for a bride’s family member to host the shower.
