I’m actually having two – one in my hometown (which is not where I currently live, but where my parents and their friends all are still) that is being hosted by my godmother and my mom’s 2 other best friends, and then one being hosted by FI’s aunts and cousins in their hometown.  There won’t be any repeat guests and they are in two different states (and both different places from where I currently live!)

It doesn’t have to be someone in your bridal party to host the bridal shower for you.  Maybe an Aunt or Your mom’s Best Friend?  My mum’s bff offered to host the shower for me.  I would talk to your mom and tell her you would really like one!!

My mom is throwing it with help from Maid/Matron of Honor I think.

I’ll probably get a mini one from work too.

I swore that I wouldn’t have a shower after I got engaged… but my mum begged, pleaded and said I’d regret it if I didn’t have one. Now I might be having two, but I’m thinking of trying to convince my Future Mother-In-Law to just have a joint one with both friends and family. Otherwise, my cousins are planning mine. The only part I’m involved is the guest list, invites and registry. Otherwise, I told them to go to town. Though we did collectively agree that it would be more of a come-and-go get together with drinks, appies, desserts, etc. with no games or opening of the gifts in front of everyone. I’d rather spend my time visiting with the ladies then oo-ing and aw-ing over gifts that no one is really paying attention to anyway. They’ll all get their heart-felt thank you’s for coming and then in the mail for any gifts.

FI’s aunt threw one, and both of my jobs.  My Maid/Matron of Honor planned a lingerie shower, but it got canceled as everyone RSVPed no.

This thread is making me feel so much better! I was starting to feel really weird about all the comments on the bee about it being inappropriate for a mom/immediate family member to through a shower!

My mom and Maid/Matron of Honor (18yo sister) will be throwing me a shower in my hometown. My aunt will be throwing me another shower where all my extended family lives.

My mother, soon to be sister in law and soon to be mother in law are throwing mine for me.  I hadn’t even considered one until they mentioned it, and they said they didn’t want me to miss out on any of the ‘bridal experience.’

My mom and 2 sisters who are my maids of honor are throwing me one in 15 days!. My team leader at work threw me a surprise one with co-workers last month.
