I was the Maid/Matron of Honor for a wedding 2 years ago. I had a couples shower for her, but her mom, aunt, and grandma put a “family” one together.

Since your friends have thrown ones in the past.. it seems really weird to me she’s acting like that!! wtf?

Do you have any aunts cousins, other family that you could maybe talk to it about? Or could you do a couple’s shower?

It’s so frustrating!! I don’t think it’s fair she’s acting like that towards you, what a pain! Could you talk to any of your other BMs about it??

Like I mentioned in one of my other posts, it’s usually the job of the Maid/Matron of Honor and BM’s to put something together.  Generally I think whoever wants to help plan it can, but in most cases the parents of the bride and groom do not.

I would talk with the Bridesmaid or Best Man who asked for the dates.

My Maid/Matron of Honor and my mother are working together to plan it. We’re doing it at my mom’s house and my mom is providing the food but my Maid/Matron of Honor did the invites, the decorating, pretty much everything else.

Mine is a surprise, but I DO know that my mom and bridal party all planned everything together.  My mom actually gave the bridal party the dates months ago…  I would talk to the Bridesmaid or Best Man who asked you what dates would work best.  Perhaps your Maid/Matron of Honor is really working to make it a surprise and you don’t know?

I think the Maid/Matron of Honor should def be apart of the shower and your girls should help as well. My Maid/Matron of Honor is my 15 year old sister so she had no clue on what needs to happen etc so I found the place and did the menu everything else is being planned by my mom and girls.  If theres sometihng you really want such as a theme or maybe your mom there then I would make it happen.  Maybe you can do an outdoor BBQ at your moms house and your girls can make all the food so they are helping.  My wedding is Sept and I had my bridal shower spot booked in Feb…. so nothing is ever too early!
