Not sure 🙁 Sister and Mom are making it be a surprise so we will see when it happens. But I am thinking in the spring because I live in VT so bad weather can change traveling to NJ (where the shower will be).

Mine is March 30, the day before my birthday! So excited to travel home for it. My Mom is planning a tea party theme

I don’t think I’m going to have one!  My mom doesn’t know a whole lot about bridal traditions so I don’t expect her to organize something, and I don’t have a whole lot of girl friends either.  I don’t mind though, I’m more excited for my bachelorette party!

I think mine will be 4/12-14. Sis wants to throw my bridal shower and the bachelorette party the same weekend.

That’s up to my Mom and Maid/Matron of Honor.  I expect I’ll be consulted about some things, but I already told them I just want to have a tea-drop-in type thing.

 

We’ll see how that turns out <_>

Not sure But I am sure I will help plan it! 

I am pretty good at planning things and I think I know where I want it! Just up to the girls on when it is going to be BUT I did start our registry!

@Firemansgirl:  June 2013, a couple of months before Fiance and I get married. Cool

I’m having one in July (for FI’s dad’s side), and then…who knows when the other one will be. No one’s offered to do my side/FMIL’s side.

I don’t think I’m having one – I’m not sure what the purpose is?  Then again, I’m an introvert.  I feel like one big party (the wedding) is enough for me!

Mine will likely be May 26th! I’ll be back home for Memorial Day weekend, so my sister (MOH) is planning on throwing it for me then.

@mjoyelle:  The bridal shower is where you get the vast majority of your wedding gifts.

@vorpalette:  that must be dependent on location.

I have never heard of anyone having 2 bridal showers for different sides of the family.

In Australia it is tradition to invite only the female wedding guests. You eat, drink, play cute games and then open presents. The presents are 95% kitchen or bathroom nicknacks and they aren’t counted as wedding presents, it’s just something small.

@theone99:  We don’t have a choice. We have HUGE families and lots of friends (we’ll be inviting at least 30 ladies to each one), and there’s no way that my Future Mother-In-Law would want to have a shower with FI’s stepmom. My FSMIL offered to throw one for FFIL’s family’s side + friends and then I think my grandma and Future Mother-In-Law will do a joint one for my family/FMIL’s side.
