    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.

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

    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 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.

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