My bridal shower is being hosted my two of my bridesmaids. My third bridesmaid is too young to help plan, she’s 14 and my Future Sister-In-Law….not sure if she would be coming or not.
My question is: do you get your bridesmaids a gift for the bridal shower? What about the people who hosted it, something more? What about my mother or Future Mother-In-Law, or even my sister(not a BM)?
I am very shy and not even sure who will be coming or not……
I have no idea what proper bridal shower etiquette is.
Even though my friends are hosting it, should I offer to help them with anything? Do you have any tips regarding showers? We’ve already invited people…… It’s in late October.

Because almost all my shower hostesses (I had 2) were getting a parent or attendant gift, I got them each something small as a gift. I got just a little more for the first shower, because 2 of the 3 hosts weren’t getting those extra gifts. I would give hostess gifts to the hostesses, and save the attendant gifts to everyone for the wedding weekend. I gave the gifts out privately to the hostesses, which made me feel less awkward.
You can offer to help, but the shower is for you, so I would just ask what they’d like you to do (i.e. when to show up, what to wear, etc).

Hair accessories,there is lots of nice things like tiaras,hair pins, bracelet. It doesn’t have to be something expensive, just something fashion that they can use for your wedding or any other event.

I got my bridesmaids that helped a cute silver bracelet. Just a lil something to show my appreciation.

You get the people that hosted the shower a gift. I got my two ladies (other Bridesmaids didn’t host) a pashmina.
