I’m pretty jealous…I wanted mine at my house but I live 45mins away from my family so its not pratical.  I think its fine – but are you upset that its not at a venue?  I don’t think people will think anything of it if its at your house (I know I wouldn’t).  Just think…..you won’t have to bring any gufts home!!  They will already be there and you just have to put them away!

We are doing the same thing.  I posted about it on here a while ago and all the Bees agreed it was not a big deal.  It will be obvious that I am not hosting the shower even though it may be at my house.

Just make sure that they say in the invitation that THEY’RE hosting it.  And make sure that they clean up afterwards 🙂  Then, you’re not really hostessing at all, you just don’t have to go anywhere!

this is what we were originally going to do as well (FMIL offered to have it at a banquet hall)

anyway, with the original plan we were going to use verbiage about how the bridal party was hosting it… which gives clarity that you’re not throwing yourself one! 😀

I think that’s totally fine!  As long as the invites come from them, it will be clear – plus then you already have the leftovers in your fridge and you don’t have to transport all the presents – win win!

I don’t think it’s a problem, especially if the invitations will be coming them.  people will know they are hosting and not you, and once they find out thei living situation I think it can make sense to everyone why it was held at your house.  And look on the plus side, it’s more convenient for you.  You don’t have to stuff your car with gifts 🙂

My Maid/Matron of Honor hosted the bridal shower at my house as well.  She had an apartment and my living room was very accomodating.  It was nice having it at my house, though I had to clean for it, which was kind of a bummer, but it got me to clean, so I guess that’s good!  I don’t think anyone cared – the invites specified that it was hosted by my Maid/Matron of Honor.

My shower is also at my house.  I actually like the idea, since I am not a fan of surprise.  I think as long as the invitation comes from them you should be fine. Enjoy it!  At least you will be comfortable in your own home.
