I don’t see why you can’t throw one. She’s not asking for people to host them and I’m sure she would appreciate the gesture. I would consider asking her BMs if they’re throwing one or at least giving them a head’s up though, in case they plan something on the same date.

You absolutely can! I would just touch base with the Maid/Matron of Honor and bridesmaids to see if any plans are in the works and suggest that you host (I’m sure they’d be happy to let you)!

From and Etiquette point of view, no reason why you can’t…

But as stated, you’ll want to check in with the Bridesmaids (I’d contact the MOH) and see what else is planned and when

Even so, there is nothing wrong with a Bride having 2 Showers, if the Guest List is a bit different for both…

In your case, with your Hubby a Groomsman, and not able to attend the Bachelor Party for the Groom… hosting a “Couples Shower” might be a nice gesture…

You invite both the Bride & Groom, and a bunch of other folks (couples) and the theme is something that the TWO OF THEM would enjoy together.

Could be… Cooking – Power Tools – Backyard Patio / BBQ – Wine etc

Hope this helps,
