My bachelorette is the weekend of April 30-May 2, and shower is May 8.  Have you talked to your Maid/Matron of Honor or BMs?  You can bring it up casually and get the ball rolling.  🙂

I know how you feel… My Maid/Matron of Honor is my little sister… She’s still in college. I know shes capable of organization, but I highly doubt she is thinking about anything wedding related until she gets out of school for the summer.

Its something we all look forward to. I dont want to make a big deal out of it either, but I know what you mean! You want someone to put a lil love and thought into it!

Good luck! Keep us updated.

I’m doing bachelorette June 25, shower, July 17.

We all met to work out dates and it was really difficult to coordinate dates!  It probably took nearly a month.  We also discussed location together and decided on a specific hotel.  As soon as we finalized the date, my sister took over.  I would help her out to get started or ask another Bridesmaid or Best Man to help her.

I would even try talking to your mom, she might know if any details are in place and even if it’s a surprise she can ease your concerns.

My bridal shower will be in July and my bachelorette party will probably be the week before my wedding in December.

It’s hard when you have a Maid/Matron of Honor or BMs that haven’t been in weddings or been to many weddings or know much about planning these sorts of things. I think the best option is just to be honest and then hook them up with someone that likes to plan parties. For example, one of my friends had her shower thrown by her Maid/Matron of Honor but for her bachelorette, two other friends are throwing it because they’re more into that sort of thing. As for being honest, I just mean saying something like “I’d really like to have a bridal shower and bachelorette party. Would you be interested in planning either of these? Would like to talk to my other friend who knows good places to go out and plan it with her?”

For my shower, my aunt is throwing it. She wanted me to have a shower near where most of my extended relatives live…I said I’d love that if she wanted to throw because it wouldn’t make sense for my BMs to throw a party in another town. My mom has been helping planning a little bit to make it easier on me (not getting a million phone calls from my aunt, etc).
