Etiquette says you shouldn’t ask for a bridal shower. That really isn’t good advice for you, but that’s all I got. I guess all you can do is hope that your Maid/Matron of Honor comes through for you.

I wouldn’t ask them, it could be considered rude. Maybe you could bring up to them that you are going to plan your own and ask if they want to help at all. Then if they really are throwing you one they will most likely tell you not to have your own.

You should not plan a bridal shower for yourself.

I would ask your mom to plan it if you are close to your mom. It is a little rude to ASK for it from a friend, but I kind of asked my mom to throw mine. Who cares about etiquette?! Whoever is close to you isn’t going to CARE if the bride asks for one. They will be more than happy to throw it. 

Sounds like your Maid/Matron of Honor just has some issues that she needs to work through. You would be better off with your mom throwing it since you know she will genuinely care about it. 🙂

Honestly I wouldn’t want people who have no interest in planning a shower for me to host it. Although I think your Maid/Matron of Honor is being petty,t  and there are some unresolved issues there. Talk to your Mom and tell her what happened, I’m sure her or one of your Aunts/ family members can come up with something.
