@sera25:  I don’t feel it would be! It will be clear by the invite who is hosting it (you) and I just highly doubt anyone would feel put off by having it at a location where you can all fit comfortably 🙂

I think it depends on where you live. Some places home showers are no biggie & the norm. Generally the bridal showers I’ve been to have been at restaurants, banquet halls, etc. I would be a little surprised but wouldn’t think anything bad.

When I was going to have a shower, it was going to be in the clubhouse of my complex. As PPs have said, as long as it is clear who the host is, you should be okay.

perfectly acceptable! Just on the invites, be clear that you state you are the hostess. My sister had her shower at our mother’s house and it worked out well space wise. I had mine at a restaurant and it was a little chaotic and noisey but still nice.

My bridal shower was at my house (last week). It was made clear on the invitation that my sister/MOH was hosting it and she actually kicked me out to decorate and had me come home when it was starting. This made it pretty clear to the guests that I didn’t host it because I didn’t even help decorate my own house.

It was really nice actually to have all the gifts already at my house and to be able to drink without worrying about driving. Do it! It will be a blast for your bride.

I’m having one at my house! As a couple we entertain at our house all the time so it’s much more comfortable for me to have my friends and family over. That way there doesn’t have to be a set ending time and people feel comfortable and relaxed. I agree with the gifts – they will already be home!

I’ve been to two showers at the brides house.

When my BFF got married, I hosted her shower at her house. I lived pretty far away from her at the time, so it was more convenient for her guests. It also served double-duty to let everyone see the house, since she had just moved in a couple of months prior. And as others have mentioned, she didn’t have to transport any gifts – they were already there.
