I have only been to a few bridal showers in my day and I am still unclear who should host. My friend (MOH) has offered to throw it, but so has my grandma. I know my friend will also be throwing the bachelorette party, so I almost feel bad to ask her to plan a shower, BUT she has mentioned it a few times. Do I suggest both of them planning one?
So who is hosting your shower? Are you having one large one with friends and relatives or separate ones? I have seen both done.

I am having one with my family, hosted by my mom/aunt/and bridal party, with my sister (MOH) doing most of the planning. I’m only having the one shower, so it’s not a huge to-do for me!
Maybe your Maid/Matron of Honor should talk to your grandmother about joining forces and having one awesome big shower? But if you’re prefer two smaller ones, for friends only and family only, then that’s another option. I think it’s fun to do one big one, though!

I’ve always thought that the BMs, mother/grandmother/aunts of the bride get together and plan the shower together.
This way it’s a lot less stressful and elimnates the need for everyone to be available on multiple days for multiple parties. Plus, the amount of money that every host needs to “chip in”is less when more people are planning.
Just easier when everyone combines forces.

It’s fine to have two, in my opinion.

Two is okay. We have way too many people to only have one, and family drama, so FSMIL offered to host one for her and FFIL’s side, and I assume my grandma will offer to host one (probably combined with FMIL’s family) eventually. I have no idea who we’ll invite to what (as far as BMs and friends go), but we’ll figure that out later. I was actually taken aback when FSMIL suggested hosting one of the showers, since it’s still early, but she likes to plan way ahead because their kids are super busy and the son is going off to college right after the wedding.
