^ Ditto.  Whoever hosts.

Showers don’t have to have themes at all anyway, but the ones who are hosting it really do get to decide what it will be (and usually where).

Let them work it out and don’t get involved. You’ll be much happier in the long run.

The host makes the decisions. You shouldn’t be throwing your own shower, asking for one, or planning it. Let her work on it.

I have a pushy Bridesmaid or Best Man who took over my bridal shower and pushed my Maid/Matron of Honor out of the way with ideas. It would not have been the theme I would have done at all, but it turned out great! I was thrilled I actually. It was the best shower I’ve ever been to even though it was SO not my style.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is very chill and a very laid back person, so I wasn’t surprised when my other Bridesmaid or Best Man took over, but I told my Maid/Matron of Honor the bachelorette party is up to HER to plan because I know we’ll have a much more fun night if that happens than if the other girl does it. Since I stepped in early and specifically said YOU are the one planning this, it’s worked out fine and the other Bridesmaid or Best Man hasn’t tried to intervene. Yet…

As others said, the host should be planning it, not you. I’d just let her do her thing, at least she sounds excited about it!
