- Wedding: November 2018
So, to me, at this point the bridal shower is sort of the last thing I’m concerned about. I’d be fine not having one at all, and since my wedding won’t be til March of 2018, it won’t be for a long time anyway. But when we (my Mom, Grandma, and FMIL) were out shopping for my wedding dress (which we found and I’m SUPER excited, but that’s a different can of worms), my Future Mother-In-Law commented at one point to my mom that she’s just SO excited because they’ll be able to get together to throw a bridal shower for me. Which is totally fine, but sisters (my bridesmaids) are under the impression that they’ll throw the bridal shower, my Mom thinks that usually the bridesmaids throw one, and the groom’s family can throw one if they want to as well. I really have no idea what the protocol usually is (I’ve always thought that, traditionally (though I know there’s no obligation, my sisters/bridesmaids are excited to fill the role) the bridesmaids threw the single bridal shower), and I don’t want anyone to be offended, and I don’t know who should tell who what about what when and how and…yikes. I don’t know if I should ask my sisters to involve Future Mother-In-Law in the planning (though she can be way overbearing and I kind of hate to make them deal with that), or if I should tell FMIL that she doesn’t have to worry about it because my sisters have already taken care of it…
I know this isn’t a big deal, and I’m pretty sure it’s just my brain stressing about something that’s pretty much irrelevant right now so that it doesn’t have to think about things that actually matter right now. lol So what thoughts do you have? Any ideas?
Thanks, bees! 🙂
