Is is okay to kindly hint to your Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaids that you would like a bridal shower? I dont want gifts I just want a party to make the memories with my Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaids, some of my friends, and moms……maybe just a Tea Party or something IDK.
How could I tactfully ask my Maid/Matron of Honor to through me a bridal shower?? and we could tell people on the invites that I dont want gifts just their company? Is this tacky or do you think id would be okay?
The problem is I dont have the money to help plan so its almost like asking them to throgh me a bridal shower… what to do???
Give advice please.

I am not sure how you ask for one. They should be planning it on their own or asking you when a good time for one would be. Maybe you could talk to your mom or someone about wanting one and she could hint to them? Sorry I don’t really have any good advice for you, but I hope you get the party you’d like to have!

I would just be straight up and honest about it. You might find out that they are secretly planning one for you…thats what happened in my case. 🙂

There’s no polite way to ask for someone to throw a shower or other party in your honor. You’re kind of stuck there. If no one offers to throw you a shower, then you simply don’t get one. It’s very possible that your bridal party may not be in the financial position to host a shower for you, and you don’t want to put them in an awkward position letting them know that you expect it. Does that make sense? Or like babe said, they might be planning one in secret. But I personally wouldn’t ask about it nor assume that I’m getting one.
But, if you just want a little get together with your nearest and dearest, feel free to organize that yourself. Nothing wrong with inviting everyone out to lunch, having a movie night with a couple bottles of wine, going out somewhere on the weekend, etc. or the tea party that you suggested. If it’s just about making memories — and not about the wedding — start making plans!

Is it traditional amongst your family and friends to have one in honor of the bride? If not, then you may be fighting an uphill battle and will have to plan one yourself (or be straight up honest and ask for it). If it is traditional, I would just casually mention how you are looking forward to it and offer your assistance in planning.

I think its ok. Heck, my Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister so I just straight up told her that I wanted one. But even if they are not your sisters, I still think it would be ok. Maybe this is wrong of me, but I think that a shower is almost expected.

Depending on how close you are with your maids… I’d think it would be okay to just say you want one or ask if they are planning one.
