Let me start off by saying that I am not planning my own shower. My sister and my cousin are planning it for me, I know technically immediate family is not supposed to plan but they wanted to do it together. Anyways, they were trying to decide where to have it and asked if I had any ideas. I don’t, neither do they. My sister suggested we do it at my place since it’s big enough to hold the number of people on the guest list. I told her that I wasn’t sure if that was acceptable. Is it? Has anybody every been to a shower at the brides home? I wouldn’t be doing any planning for the shower just using the space we have. I really can’t imagine any of the family and friends on my list would care but I don’t want it to look bad either.

No, but why not? I think is acceptable to do.

I think it’s fine. These days, with families and friends being so spread out, it’s more common for the bride to be more intimately involved in the planning process. 🙂 Use your house without guilt.

I can imagine some of the older women might hem and haw over how it’s not supposed to be done that way, but heck, if we all planned our weddings to match their standards, we’d be in MUCH different boats than we are now 🙂

I hosted my sisters bridal shower at her house (I was MOH). I think everyone thought it was acceptable. I mean it was clear that i was hosting the shower.

I think that the “rules” of showers are changing, and now it’s pretty much do whatever you want. I think it would be nice to have it at your house.

@Carpie: I think it’s totally fine as long as you’re okay with it. I don’t want it at my house because I will be stressed and cleaning all fanaticly. That’s why my Maid/Matron of Honor and my Mom don’t want me to have it at my house. You shouldn’t be stressed at all!

I think it is great if you have enough space for everybody. You have everything in your space, so that will be easier than have any other place. Don’t be stressed and enjoy your day, have a lot of fun and pictures!!!!
***Favor idea: give them a little manicure package. It’s affordable ($3-5 per person) and always welcome to girls 😉

I think it’s fine. I’m older and wouldn’t think a thing of it.
