    @Mrs. Meowerson:  I would agree – seems you would be the one cleaning the house before and after.  Other than that, I don’t see a problem with it.

    I might end up hosting one for a friend and it’s very likely it would have to be at her house. I don’t think it’s weird, I’m sure your Maid/Matron of Honor will help you clean :).

    I think it would be fine so long as everyone else took care of all the organizing and cleaning up afterwards and you just relaxed and enjoyed it 🙂  Also throughout the bridal shower resist the urge to play hostess, get people drinks etc and let them do it, other than that I think it would be fine.

    @nzgirl: can you really turn the hosting button on and off though?  i think it’ll automatically kick in if it is your home.

    Don’t do it at your house. The thing that made my shower soooooo enjoyable was that all I had to do was show up! It was so nice just being a guest amidst all the crazy planning that I was doing at the time. Consider doing it at a restaurant or something like that.

    We are going to have to do it in our own home just to help cut back cost of renting a place.

    I don’t think it’s weird. I’ve been trying to convince my Maid/Matron of Honor to have my shower at my house so I don’t have to bring the presents from point A to point B, but I don’t think she wants to. From what I heard, my girls are talking about having it at my FI’s parents’ church – boo. No fun for me, I want to enjoy an adult beverage at my shower!

    Mine was at my apartment- I have two roommates, but I still ended up doing most of the cleaning beforehand (FMIL coming over!).  I didn’t do any of the clean-up after.

    Wouldn’t have been my first choice, but it wasn’t a big deal.

    I am having a baby shower soon and had the same problem. So I actually offered my place if it would help. But one of the two girls planning it found a clubhouse to rent out instead. I didnt think it was weird, hey if it helps and saves money. But I would feel weird like I was the host just bc it was in my own house. I dont think I would be able to relax as much. Even though it would have been easy, no moving gifts, I wouldnt want to do all the pre-cleaning and clean up. So Im glad its not here.
