Where to have it:  Someone who has a big enough home, church rec hall, park, etc.

What to do:  eat some food, play some games, open some presents.  That’s pretty much how mine went.

Typically invites go out 4-6 weeks in advance of showers. If people need to make special travel arrangements, may want to do so sonner/start spreading the word. At my shower we ate, played games, and opened presents too. I recommend having it at someone’s home. Mine was held in a cute little tea house but it tuened out being a little too small and somethings were schratched because of lack of space. Save yourselves the time and money and hold it at a family/bridal party memeber’s home. Don’t try and play hostess day of your shower, that is where your Maid/Matron of Honor needs to take over so you can just enjoy yourself. Trust me, we brides have enough to worry about with planning. Shower time should be a time to sit back and let someone else do the work 😉

Have someone assigned to take notes on who gave you what for gifts.

My shower today is being hosted by my Future Mother-In-Law and being held at my house. We’re going to eat, drink, open presents and play one or two games.

I had a kind of crazy shower planning too.  Maid/Matron of Honor kept putting the planning off until it was almost too late.  Since everyone was across the country we did it 2 days before hand too.  We combined doing the mani/pedi’s with the shower.  The salon was really nice and let us use this gorgeous patio upstatirs outside and we had just morning bagels, cakes, juice, fruit etc.  I was happy.
