- Wedding: August 2012
I’m wondering what to do here…..i only have one person in my bridal party, my Maid/Matron of Honor. She wants to plan my shower and I’m at a loss as to where it should be. It’s only about 10 ladies on the invite list. My Maid/Matron of Honor lives about an hour away from me. Most of the guests have small children and about 45 mins to an hour from me and one guest lives in a neighboring state that isn’t part of this metro area. My Maid/Matron of Honor was going to host it at her house but I didn’t want my guests driving 2 plus hours to attend a shower for me. Granted I go to all of their kids parties, showers, jewelery shows and other life events and I know they would do it, I just don’t want to impose on people. I don’t feel comfortable with that.
Should I choose to do a luncheon somewhere and help Maid/Matron of Honor with the cost? Since she’s flying solo in the bridal party, I wouldnt want her to take on that cost herself. I did give her bridesmaids dress to her and she’s wearing shoes she wore to her sister’s wedding so she’s not spending money in terms of attire in case anyone is wondering what are her expenses for the wedding.
Should I ask my Future Sister-In-Law if she would have it at her house? Future Sister-In-Law is in a more centralized location. Future Sister-In-Law and I are really close (we were friends before I met Fiance so we kinda owe it to her that we’re together) and she probably wouldn’t have a problem with it at all. I just don’t know if it’s appropriate to ask her since she’s not in the wedding party. Having it at the FMIL’s house is NOT an option she will not even be invited to the shower.
I want it to be easy for everyone and not impose on people and I’m not sure if that’s possible. 🙁
