Whos throwing everybody their bridal showers? I’m not sure who will throw mine. And do you supose its ok to ask someone? I want to ask a Bridesmaid or Best Man to do it but I dont want to be rude. Like I know my Maid/Matron of Honor would do it but I live in IL and she lives in CA. So that poses a problem. Also, Does anyone have any ideas for bachalorette parties? I have to most likely involve my Mother-In-Law and my mom so I want it to be sutible for them. Plus I hate strippers. Any ideas??

I personally wouldn’t ask for a bridal shower or a bachelorette party. For the party it can be anything for the girls to do together, it really depends on your personality! For one of my friends, we sang karaoke!

I think that the Maid/Matron of Honor traditionally takes the lead on both the bridal shower & the bachelorette party. I believe that my mom, Maid/Matron of Honor and one of my bridesmaids are the main planners for the shower. My Maid/Matron of Honor & the same bridesmaid are working together on the bachelorette party.

I wouldn’t ask..seem awkward to do so. I’m having 2 bridal showers. My Great Aunt is throwing one along with my mom and 1 of my MOHs.
The 2nd is being thrown for the other side of my family by my Maid/Matron of Honor & my mom.
I’ll also be having a bachelorette party in Vegas with just the girls.
In each case the people offered to throw the party.
I’m sure some one in your group is probably already planning and just hasn’t told you…

Well the Maid/Matron of Honor is planning the Bachalorette party bc she will be in town around that time. We just dont know what to do for it. But she wont be in town for the shower since she is in Ca. And I know my mom wont. My gramma might but I’m really not sure. And I dont want to have to ask for someone to throw one for me. But I will be very sad if no one throws me one.

Maybe you should ask for ideas in you local section. I’m sure the IL bees will have lots of suggestions…
when I flew to IL for my cousin’s bachelorette weekend we spent the morning at a salon our other cousin had resevered for us. The solon has an upstairs room with pedi-chairs and a nail bar. They let us bring snacks and mimosas..it was very fun. Later that day we had a fabulous dinner at a resaurant that also offered a dance show and then we hit a club where we had a private table…we all had a lot of fun. I think the important thing is to not over-think it…think about what you enjoy doing in your area and then ask yourself if that is something you and your friends would enjoy doing. Since your Maid/Matron of Honor is from out of town, you may end up doing some of the leg work, but thats ok. Get her the info and then have her take care of the details…good luck!
