    I would probably not give it to my Maid/Matron of Honor unless she asked. Also, I don’t really think a shower results in more gifts. When I am invited to a wedding I have in mind that I will speend a given amount. If there is a shower I divide this amount and get two gifts equal to that amount (i.e. a $50 shower gift and a $75 wedding gift) but if there is no shower then I get one larger gift (i.e. a $125 wedding gift). In other words, you would get the same amount from me. I think most people are like this.

    I would wait until someone asks.  I would feel as if I was expected to though the shower if the bride was giving me a guest list.  And, although it is sort of their duty to throw the pre-wedding showers and parties, (and assuming you don’t really care about having a shower) I wouldn’t want to put it on someone who isn’t the the position of throwing one.  

    You still have a lot of time before your wedding, could it be that they haven’t really thought about showers yet?  Also have you talked to a family memeber (mom?) about it?  My aunt volunteered to throw my shower almost the minute I got engaged! So my bridal party isn’t really going to be involved.

    I would wait until someone asks for the guest list. Also, for what it’s worth, I have, at times (depending on how close I am to the bride), sent a gift when I was invited to an Out of Town shower that I could not attend.
