our (joint) bridesmaid is throwing us one, though I’m not gonna lie, we may have hinted around that we wanted one!!! And my mom was gonna throw me one, but I said no because since we live so far apart and I’m only going to be seeing her a couple days before the wedding,  she wanted to throw one the day before the wedding.  To me, day-before-the-wedding showers seem like gift-grabs.

My Sister (MOH) but shes 18, so basically my mom. I couldnt imagine not having one, just because its tradition. She has already talked to me about it. Why dont you just mention it? to a close bridesmaid or your mom… it dosent have to be big and fancy… just some apps and girls getting together!

(I read this title as “Who’s throwing up in the shower”…)

My mother, Maid/Matron of Honor, and Mother-In-Law all hosted my shower. It was great to see them acting as a family together and meeting all of my friends 🙂

My aunt is throwing my shower (she does it for all our cousins) and my Future Sister-In-Law is hosting a family bbq/shower as well.

My sister/MOH and another Bridesmaid or Best Man are conspiring for my bachelorette.

There will be no guest overlap for these as the showes are family events only.

No one is throwing me a shower because I am a loser and no one loves me.


Hahah but seriously, I am pretty sure no one is throwing me a shower because

1) they all live so dang far away

b) my moh is clueless and has never been in a wp before (I love her and she is awesome, but versed in weddings she is not)

cat) my mom is going to Iceland for 2 weeks prior to the wedding so she is super busy planning her life & travel arrangements.

4) both my siblings have new borns and are a little pre-occupied with their progeny atm.

Well my shower is a mish mash of everyone helping, but I did have a lot of say in it.  I know this is probably weird judging by most of the PP’s responses, but in my circle, it’s not uncommon for the bride to help out and have a lot of say in the shower.  We typically do big banquet hall type showers, and the mother of the bride usually pays for it, while the bridal party runs the day sorta.  Maybe you could bring it up and offer to help, while they would “host” it?  That way it’s less work for them, but you still get the experience.  I think everyone deserves a bridal shower, I would talk to your mom about it.

For me, my dad has offered to pay for it, my Future Mother-In-Law and my mother are helping a bit, and my girls are doing the games that day and sorta running it.  But I chose most of the stuff, and have been kept in the loop.

Hope this helps!

I don’t think I’ll be getting a shower either. My bridesmaids are working on a bachelorette party for me, which is nice. I have female family, but they’re all pretty busy with their own kids and lives and stuff. All my family and friends are so spread out that I don’t even know where they would hold it if there was one…. Its okay though, just a bit of a let down.

I feel like a bridal shower is really about showing support and love for the bride, something I feel like I lack sometimes. Wow I feel childish. “no one pays any attention to me!! wah wah wah” But thats how I feel a lot of the time.

</pity party>

I am one of the first of my friends to get married, so most of my BMs probably wouldn’t really know where to start with planning a shower…plus they’re scattered all over the country. My shower is being hosted by 7 of my mom’s friends and 2 of my aunts in my hometown, across the country from where I live now. My mom’s friends are like a shower throwing machine (there is always one with a daughter getting married!) That said, it will probably be more of my mom’s friends than mine because of where it is located.

My sisters and my Mom threw mine and my BMs helped. I got really lucky though because both of my sisters planned their own wedding this past year (only one of them actually happened but she still had the experience lol), one of my BMs was Maid/Matron of Honor in her sister’s wedding this past April, 2 of my other BMs were active BMs in their sisters’ weddings and the last one was just in another wedding a few months ago. Soooo they all knew what to expect!

My sister who was also my Maid/Matron of Honor threw my shower.  My SIL doesn’t have a bridal party and her family won’t throw her a shower since its not tradition for them to, so i will be hosting one for her.
