my shower is this weekend. My mom is hosting. And some of my bridesmaids (not all) have helped out quite a bit. Should I get thank you presents for them? Considering some BMs didn’t help at all, would it be weird to not get them a thank you gift? Does my mom have to give a speech? Do I have to give a “speech?” Being that its on mothers day, i thought i’d bring flowers for my mom, Future Mother-In-Law, grandmothers. is that ok? or not the right venue? All of a sudden i’m get anxiety over this since i didn’t plan it it all feels so out of my control. How am I supposed to “act” when I open presents?

Haha take a deep breath. Everything will be okay. I would certainly get thank you gifts/card for anyone who helped out. If some of your BM’s didn’t do anything then don’t worry about it.
I think it’s really sweet of you to get flowers for those women, not bad at all.
And you act very thankful for your presents. Don’t over do it because it will be obvious but always thank them and tell them you love it or can’t wait to use it.
But more important than any of those things, have fun. It’s your wedding shower! Have a blast!

I think thank you cards will suffice – small gifts for all BMs right before wedding. Speech, not required (gosh I hope not!). Flowers for the moms, fmil and grammas – totally. 🙂
Have fun and enjoy! Remind me of that when it’s my turn. 😉

@sarg88: It will all be okay! I only gave gifts to my Maid/Matron of Honor and my BM’s mother, who let Maid/Matron of Honor host my bridal shower at her house. And everyone else seemed okay with that! They were the ones who hosted anyway. 🙂

I totally understand. My shower is this weekend too. All of a sudden, I’ve started freaking out about it. I’m glad I’m not the only one that feels this way.
