I don’t think I’m doing a shower… not sure… My local friends aren’t really the shower type, and ALL our family will be coming in from out of state for the wedding so I don’t want to ask them to travel twice.  (It’s a major pain to get to our wedding location.)  And, we’re not having a wedding party so no bridesmaids, and my mom is kinda clueless about wedding tradition stuff.

Oh well, I’m not too concerned about it.  Hopefully people will just give us a bigger wedding gift ๐Ÿ˜‰

@vorpalette:  Thats a nice combo knowing when but not the details. The when is killing me BUT I have 4 trips before July (thats the bachelorette party) that I will be traveling to NJ so it has to be one of those weekends I just don’t know for sure.

My fiance’s family is throwing us a co-ed shower Memorial Day weekend.  We’re traveling to his home state for this since they are halfway across the country and it wouldn’t be very convenient for everyone to come to us.  I’m not sure when my bridesmaids will throw my shower.  I assume it will be a surprise.

I have three trips back to Denver before the wedding, not including Bachelorette party weekend in Vegas – Shower on June 8th.  I have no idea what to expect – I’ve only been to one before and it was kind of lame.

Do y’all have a hand in yours, or is it being planned by others?

Mine is June 8th, i am so excited! My Maid/Matron of Honor is doing the shower that day from 3 to 6 and then it is turning into a co-ed bbq & bonfire. I honestly can’t wait to be at my own shower!

@VermontBride13:  My shower is supposed to be a surprise too, but I don’t think my mom or sister will be able to pull it off.

Sooo the big secret is out, my shower was April 6th! My BMs and Mom did an amazing job! I was completely surprised and had an amazing day. They did “Around the Clock” theme and everything came together so perfectly!

See, now this thread makes me want to cry. I figured maybe my grandma/aunts would want to talk about a shower/dates at Easter. Nothing. No idea what my bridesmaids are doing–apparently no one had any idea who the maid of honor was?? I announced that a few times and made her the other admin for our Facebook group, so it should have been pretty obvious for the past…year. Future Mother-In-Law hasn’t mentioned anything. FSMIL only mentioned it because they’re so busy, especially this year with her son graduating and going off to college, that they needed to pick a date way in advance because they were pretty limited. :
