    My wonderful Mama is hosting and paying for mine alongside my little sister/MOH. The few that I have attended have been a joint effort between the MOB and bridesmaids, but in my case, my Mom didn’t want to ask the BM’s to shell out any more money than they already had to, so she is giving it as her “gift” to me. <3

    The one I planned as MOH was split between me and the brides Mom. I chipped in as much as I could and took on the task of paying for, putting together and sending the invites.

    My future sisters are throwing mine. If they hadn’t offered I would probably be helping my sister put it together.

    One of my bridesmaids paid for pretty much all of it, the other 2 chipped in a little to cover the cost of the supplies they needed for their part.  Then I covered $200 of the food cost, and my mom paid for the rest.

    It was a combination of my MOH/bridesmaids, my mom and my aunt. The shower was at my aunts house so they didn’t have to worry about paying a p/person price. Basically, my girls each made a few dishes and handled the invites, games, prizes & favors. My mom outsourced a few of the larger menu options to one of her chef friends and provided the beverages (which ranged from mimosas and bloody marys to bottled water and soda). My aunt paid for the décor, which was the most expensive aspect of the whole thing since she rented chiavari chairs, used a florist for all of the floral arrangements and purchased all of the linens and table settings.

    Mine was a combination of my sisters, bridesmaids and my moms and aunts.  One of my sisters was not part of the bridal party because she thought it would be too difficult to be committed with 2 small children at the time but she bought my ticket to Vegas for my stagette party and organized my bridal shower and everyone else chipped in and helped as well.

    My aunt hosted mine and definitely paid for the bulk of my shower costs (linens, flowers, TONS of food and drinks), although I believe my mother and a few bridesmaids helped as well.

    “Traditionally” speaking, the Maid or Matron of Honor is supposed to host the bridal shower, although nowadays it is perfectly acceptable to have any/all bridesmaids or another friend take part in planning or hosting a shower. The hostess typically assumes most of the financial responsibilities that go along with hosting a shower, but more often than not, family members and the bridesmaids offer to chip in.

    I had 3 parties as ridiculous as it sounds and all 3 were put on by my aunts or aunt-in-laws. Various family members brought food to it which they all had planned on who would bring what.

    Although I have to say that I have a slight jealousy (the nice kind) that your mom is doing it for you.. hehe but I’m getting greedy here ๐Ÿ˜‰
