maid of honor bridal shower guest list etiquette?

So im the Maid of Honor for my friends wedding and im already feeling the stress of all i have to do, especially since the bride is planning on inviting 60 people to the bridal shower! Now i just need to know if it is within proper etiquette to tell her that I will host a friend shower while someone else in her family can host the family shower therefore drawing guidelines for myself and making that burden easier for me because there will be less people?

No bridal party means no bridal shower?

I’m having a destination wedding with just close family–no bridal party I was just informed by my grandmother that this means I will have no bridal shower, as traditionally the Maid of Honor throws this. Is this true? Only brides with bridal parties get bridal showers? It doesn’t seem very fair Edit: My guest list isn’t THAT small–I am inviting at least 30 people–but I only know of 10 that will absolutely definitely be there

Is it wrong to have a bridal shower after getting eloped?

My high school sweetheart and I been together for 8 yrs. and we went to Las Vegas and got eloped with no ones knowledge of us getting married until we came back. We plan on having a big ceremony in a few years but my friend really wants to throw me a bridal shower… Is this a bad thing to do since we are already married? My friend would want to through me a shower in a few months… Is this way too soon to have a bridal shower since our ceremony will be in a few years? or Is there any other kind of party or celebration we can have in the mean time? We have been together for all these years but we have never lived with each other. He is in the Marine Corps and as soon as everything is settled and he has a permanent base then we will get a home together. He has served two terms in afghanistan and is serving another term soon. I don’t plan on having any showers or anything of that sort. My friend has been the one trying to have these parties and I keep on disregarding the idea(s) so hopefully your answers will get her to stop bugging me about them.

Optional Wedding Shower Gifts at Multiple Bridal Showers?

I have friends that are giving me multiple bridal showers. I would like my bridesmaids and house party to attend them all, because I enjoy their company and I want to share this special time with them. But I don’t want or expect them to bring a bridal shower gift to each wedding shower. How do I politely tell them not to feel obligated to do so? Their help and involvement in the wedding is more than enough.

What is expected at a Bridal Shower?

My wedding is this summer and the Bridal shower is coming up. Me and my fiance don’t live together yet, and we won’t until about a month or so BEFORE the wedding, so we have absolutely no household items, except our beds and dressers. I’m concerned that at the bridal shower I will mostly get gifts for our sex life and this is something I don’t want. Will people still buy gifts off our registry? I would rather receive items off our registry since we need a lot of stuff rather than lingerie, I don’t feel comfortable getting that stuff in front of my fiance’s family. On our shower invites, we put both mine and my fiance’s name with our gift registries. Will people assume to get our registry items for the shower? I just don’t know what to expect and have only attended one other shower, many years ago! Perhaps we should have put “Wedding shower” instead of “Bridal shower” Thoughts?

Ideas for a fall bridal shower?

I have to help throw a bridal shower for a friend later this month…and we just got done throwing one this summer, and my pocketbook is empty now! We want to do a fall theme, but want to keep it simple and inexpensive. Any ideas for decorations, games, etc? We’re doing it at a church where we have access to a lot of tables, chairs, platters, etc.

Will she want a bridal shower?

My sister is getting married in April. I have never seen her so happy before. She has been divorced because her husband left her for someone else. It was really hard for her. I don’t want to bring back painful memories, but I would love to throw her a small bridal shower, just with her sisters and a few cousins. I don’t know if she’d want one though. Any thoughts?

Can’t make bridal shower?

My fiancee’s cousin is getting married but I cannot make her bridal shower because I have to work. I am still going to buy her a present. Do I bring it to the wedding or should I give it to her some other time? Thanks everyone so far for the answers! I had been thinking of mailing it, but wasn’t sure what the proper etiquette was.

What should I get for my sister in laws bridal shower?

My SIL just let me know earlier this week that she will be having a bridal shower two weeks from Saturday. She said she is registered, but I don’t have to bring anything. I know this sounds dumb, but this is my first of anything having to do with a wedding – and I have no idea what exactly the registry is.

I know she was trying to be nice when she said that, but I would hate to show up empty handed, and would like to get something anyway. However, I have no idea WHAT to get. Her & her fiance live together with their 1 year old girl… I don’t know if that helps at all, but any help I can get with this is greatly appreciated!
