It’s a big no-no and is perceived as a gift grab.  Do you have ANYBODY else that could throw it – cousin, sister, coworker, bridesmaid – anyone but you or your mom.

Technically I am not throwing my own but I have a big hand in design and prep. My MOHs will be handling it but I am showing them inspiration pics.. what I will be wearing..etc etc

I agree with @milesbella that it’s widely viewed as pretty inappropriate and greedy. Now, if the hostess asks you for suggestions, then I think that’s okay. Keep in mind that the party is being thrown in your honor. It’s rude to throw a party in your own honor. It comes across as “Let’s celebrate ME! Here are some gifts I’d like!” which I’m sure isn’t your intention. 🙂

I might be having my own… I know a lot of people who threw their own as well… I just don’t have any female friends and my Maid/Matron of Honor isn’t really doing anything… my sister Bridesmaid or Best Man 1 will be away for a year and Bridesmaid or Best Man2 is FI’s sister who doesn’t have much money and I barely know…
