(Closed) Bridal Shower help!

November does seem early for a February wedding, but I think people will understand that you don’t really have any control over when the shower is held.

Talk to everyone about it, and figure out what they are thinking. I have a huge family, and when I went to throw my sister’s bridal shower I had conversations with all the moms (actual mom, step mom and FMIL) discussing shower expectations and desires. We ended up throwing two family showers (one for step family, one for our family plus groom’s family), but we invited the mothers to all the showers. Not sure if that will help you, but it isn’t that weird to have multiple showers, as long as you don’t overlap the guest lists.

Good luck!

IT’S AWESOME THAT YOUR FIANCE’S FAMILY IS SO EXCITED THAT THEY WANT TO HAVE THE PARTY EARLY!

It’s not too early really because November isn’t a busy, busy month. People have Christmas in December and will be broke in January…..so November is good month. So let the festivities begin early! Let these  ladies have a good time planning a great bridal shower for you!

Excuse me for a second while I think about your great inlaws wanting to give you a party <SIGH – how nice!>

Anyway, let them throw you a bridal shower with that side of the family. Then if she asks you how many people you have, ask her how many she can fit. You can always just have your Mom, grandmother and aunts. Because this will just be the first bridal shower – you can have two.

Having more than one shower allows you to invite different people to different showers. I have three showers, but the only people invited to all three are my mother and grandmother. My bridesmaids were invited to two, but only because my matron of honor gave one, so I had to invite them all to that one and the other because the mom of another bridemaid was part of that one, so I needed to invite her to that one, so I invited all three so no one would feel left out.

If you have that big a family you could invite one part to one shower and another to another shower.

enjoy the fun and, as other posters have mentioned, have different guest lists to avoid anyone feeling like there is a deluge instead of a shower. 🙂  moms should be invited to all, of course.
