Who throws a bridal shower?
Aug 21st, 2005, 11:49am
 
My sister is getting married in only 6 weeks.  I am one of her bridesmaids.  My other sister is the maid of honor.  Recently, i got an email from her saying she was attaching the bridal shower guest list.  She has not spoken to me and asked me to throw her a bridal shower.  In addition, i know she has not spoken to the maid of honor and asked her either.  Is this proper etiquette to assume that her wedding party is going to throw her a shower without actually asking any of them?

I guess its a big hint!!!!   Roll Eyes
Usually the best friend(s) or family throws the shower.
I had actually had three showers- one the maid of honor (my BF) put on, another my future sister in law hosted, and lastly, one by a church member. Different people attended each of them.

Usually the bridal party plans it more specifically the maid of honor has this honor.  Good luck!!!

My sisters and sister in law were my bridal party, and together with my mother, planned the shower.  They asked me soon after I got engaged, to make a list, then forget about it.  I did, and truly was surprised.

Hi... I saw a website that talked all about Bridal Showers (who throws them, who to invite, where to throw it) over at bridalbundles

I think this varies so much by area of the country.  I grew up in the Midwest and in my hometown it was never appropriate for a family member to host a shower for a bride to be, but now I live in Southern CA and almost everyone has a shower hosted by someone in their family.  In my hometown the showers were usually hosted by close friends of the bride or her Mother's friends.  Frequently, several friends would go together and host the showers.  Also in my hometown the only people invited to more than one shower was the family and bridal attendants, however out here I have been invited to up to 3 showers for the same person.
