I noticed a lot of posts talking about shower dresses or outfits girls have gotten specifically to wear for their showers. I would love to have a cute dress or something to wear for mine but everyone says I’m not allowed to know when it is and it’s supposed to be a surprise. If you are having one…did you/ will you know about your shower?

Reminds me of a surprise bridal shower for my Future Sister-In-Law. She came over to her cousin’s house under the pretense that they were going to paint a few rooms. Imagine her surprise when she showed up to her own bridal shower wearing old, paint covered clothes.
I anticipate I’ll be told in advance of my bridal shower to make sure I don’t have work that afternoon.

Yeah, that’s what I don’t want to happen! I guess I will have to just keep a dress in my car or something.

My hostesses asked me what dates worked out best for us-it was a couples shower.

- Wedding: January 2011 - Vintage Villas
I think I would want to know about my shower. I’m throwing one for a friend (I’m her MOH) and I basically told her it was happening but I’m not giving details

I will- i’m going to have 3 showers, which I know are coming, so I need to know when they are so I can help them get scheduled

I’m not having one, it’s just too much of a hassle EVERYONE is from out of town and I’m not going to ask them to travel to a shower AND the wedding. So, I guess I vote for YES i know when it’s happening, since I know it’s not happening. Hehe.

I’M from out of town (living in a different city that our hometown), so I know and everything has to be scheduled around when i can be home. If I lived in the same state as my parents or any of my BMs, that might make a difference.

i’m not into surprises. the people throwing my shower for me know that.

I knew about both of my showers, because they had to be planned around my work schedule. But I don’t think I would feel very comfortable if I didn’t know in advance about the shower. I like to be prepared and look nice and have my camera along!
My almost cousin-in-law had a pretty good guess as to when hers would be but wasn’t positive which day, so she wore the same cute sundress to church 2 weeks in a row, and the second week, the shower was after church!

I would ask the person/ people who you think might be throwing you a shower, when the date will be. The details can be the surprise, but you want to make sure they don’t schedule it at a time when you are busy.

I probably won’t even have one 🙁

My MOH/BM asked me for dates that would work for the shower, so I knew when it was going to be. That worked out best for us, because I was really busy with school and needed to schedule far in advance.

I didn’t know I was getting one. They threw me one at work and it was a totaly surprise and so wonderful!

I knew. I can’t imagine not being told when it was. Plus I hate surprises.
