Am I suppose to know and act as if I don’t know when is my shower? See they (my mom and my MOH) asked me the date and I already know the only available dates I have in July is July 20th? I mean…How do I act towards people who ask me about it…. I can’t lie and ask surprised? It’s not like me??? And my Future Mother-In-Law is driving from Md to attend so I already know…..

@beeandrashid: I dont think showers are a surprise by any means. I actually picked the date of my shower with my family and wedding party girls. They are planning it and have asked my opinions on things. No need to act surprised. a shower is “part of the process” – its typical for the bride to know about it.

Yeah I’ve never heard that the bride isn’t supposed to know about the shower, I have heard that it can sometimes be for the bachelorette party though.

Be prepared to have a shower that day- outfit chosen and ready etc.
If they “surprise” you, act surprised.
If they say “see you at the shower”. no need to act surprised.

My shower was a surprise, they wouldn’t tell me a thing about it. I kinda knew by process of elimination with dates but I was still surprised when I walked into the room and saw everyone and the decor and everything. So I wouldn’t go out of my way to fake being surprised BUT you might surprise yourself and be a little Wow over everyone and the details. Don’t stress it, just be yourself and act natural.

I’m actually helping to plan mine because I don’t want my mother and my sister to be too stressed. (they don’t always get along)
