We are throwing a bridal shower for a good friend. She has 3 bridesmaids and 1 maid of honor (her sister), since etiquette says family shouldn’t host the shower, my name (BM1) will be on the RSVP. But what do I write in the section of the envelope for ‘hosted by’? We will all (including sister MOH) be splitting the costs

It’s fine. I don’t get the “can’t be hosted by a family member” thing–I’ve NEVER been to a shower that wasn’t hosted by a member of the family, usually the MOB. Mine’s being hosted by my grandma, FSMIL, her mother, and Future Sister-In-Law (and possibly also my bridesmaids).

I think it’s fine to put the sister’s name since she’s co-hosting it!

I think it’s fine to have it hosted by all of you! In my circle it’s super common to have to shower hosted by the MOH/bridesmaids, so I don’t see anything wrong with it. Honestly, the only person I would find strange as the host would be the bride! I think you guys are fine to out the Maid/Matron of Honor on there. :]

@Honey-Bee: I think having Maid/Matron of Honor then the rest of the names will be fine.
My mom is hosting my shower. I’m sure the etiquette snobs will have a field day with that.

I think it’s fine to include her name.

@Honey-Bee: My mother is hosting mine and has hosted my sister’s and SIL’s too. It’s how it works in my family.
I say – list that sister!

I completely agree with you girls – I see no issue with family hosting. That is how it is done in my family anyway. But it was a specific request of the Maid/Matron of Honor and the mother of the bride. I got ahold of the Maid/Matron of Honor and gave her the same options as I gave you in the poll and she picked ‘hosted by the bridesmaids’ and since I try not to rock the boat I will order invitations that say that!
Thanks for the replies!

My sisters are 2 of my bridesmaids & are mainly the ones planning my shower. They sent out a beautiful invite at the bottom it says hosted by the bridesmaids. The same wording was used for there bridal showers.

@vorpalette: I know same here, all of the showers that I have been to have been hosted by the MOB and the bridesmaids.

why can’t it be hosted by “loved ones”? why have all of those names on the invite?
