How about offering to help her? You can tell her she’s done a lot and you feel bad leaving it all up to her. I think your worries are legitimate and if you phrase it the right way (i.e. not “I don’t think you can plan my shower in 3 weeks” but “You have a lot on your plate and the date is so soon, so I’d love to help”), she won’t be offended. If she’s confused as to why you’re worried, I think what you’ve written here is ok to tell her – that if it were local, it could be pushed back, but since you have your tickets already you want to make sure everything goes according to plan. Even if she says no to your help, this might encourage her to get her butt in gear and start planning!

I would mention it to your other friends that you are excited to come in for the shower. That way you will know if they have been informed.  If they haven’t then that gives them the chance to call her.  I would also send the Maid/Matron of Honor and email with a list of phone numbers/emails of the other girls who have offered to help her out.  Then I would send her an email list of the addresses of the other guests you wish to include.  Sometimes that is the hardest part and all it takes to get things moving.

Also, don’t stress too much we just threw together a shower in one week for my cousin.  It was Tuesday night and it was a lot of fun because it was so casual and no stress!

Oh yeah and she could be playing dumb to surprise you with the plans.  Never know

Girl I’m a worrier too!  I’ve tried really hard to not get worked up over all this stuff.  Venting here has helped or just reading other people’s posts makes me realize that I’m not alone.
