I would talk to all three since they’ve all volunteered and ask who wants to take the lead.  Once a lead person is in charge, you can all talk about who will take on what responsibility.  For example, #2 who has limited financial resources can help with other duties that are assigned to her by the lead.

As for as the local help, it’s perfectly fine to involve yuor mom, sister, or other family memebers & friends to help.  In my opinion, the antiquated tradition that the bride & her family are not supposed to do anything related to the shower is no longer valid.  That used to be the case when the bride’s family paid for the wedding, they weren’t expected to help w/ the shower too.

But now with wedding being paid for by a variety of sources, I think it’s fine that whoever wants to help can help.  And my personal opinion is that the bride is allowed to provide input.  It’s a party honoring you, and you are going to be the only person who will know everyone attending.  So why shouldn’t you be able to give your opinion? 

But I do feel that once you give your opinion, you’ve got to let the hosts do their thing.  Have fun.  How lucky you are to have such great friends, that’s not always the case!

I think host #1 is your best bet. She’s organized and seems to care very much about you (since she calls on a weekly basis). Not that the others don’t care about you, but she seems to be the best to take the lead.
