Ok so I know that my mom and bridesmaids and planning a bridal shower for me sometime in the next few months, and I know that it’s really important to my mom that it be a surprise. I also love surprises and am fine with not knowing when it will be or where it will be or what it will entail.
BUT, I really don’t want to show up to my own bridal shower looking like crap. How did you, will you, or would you handle this? I guess I just need to be looking my best on all weekend days just in case? Or could I hand off a dress to my Maid/Matron of Honor to bring with her? Or get two new dresses to rotate every Saturday? lol. I know this sounds ridiculous, but I hate being the center of attention to begin with, so all eyes on me while not feeling or looking my best is my worst nightmare!

@loveinthelibrary: lol i knew i was getting a bridal shower, it was just a matter of when. so I made sure that my hair and make up looked good every weekend lol
i also bought a dress and told DH to bring it to whoever is hosting it so that I have something to change into when it happens.

I like the idea of handing off a dress – my friend had a surprise shower (she didn’t want one at all) and she spent every weekend for months dressed up.

I’m in the same position! Although my parents are trying to lead me on that I am not having a bridal shower (my sister who is my Maid/Matron of Honor just laughed when she found out about this .. stating “would we not throw you one” and my Fiance let it slip to me too but no details…I guess this is what I get since I asked for it to be surprise).
I’ve been narrowing down which weekends I think it will be! But don’t know how to handle the dress situation..I think I may ask my sister to make sure there is a dress in hand too!
You’ll have to let us know when yours happens!

i think it would be good to give your Maid/Matron of Honor a dress for you to change into when the time comes.
