Can I still have a bridal shower?

Can I still have a bridal shower? Topic: Case shower
June 16, 2019 / By Jancis
Question: Basically, his family and my family live 3.5 hours apart in two different locations - and about 1/4 of the guests live between 3-6 hours away from both of these 'central' locations in random places. Aside from that, my maids of honor (twin 18 year old sisters) are completely clueless when it comes to hosting events and I honestly dont think they could handle this. They're very very imature compared to most teens their age. Frankly, I dont even think they are considering this to be their responsibility at all because they both seem to think that they're a few years younger then they actually are. I really do want to have a bridal shower, but I'm just not sure if it is even possible. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make that work? And if it is possible, is it rude to ask my mom to help my sisters plan it? Or - would it be weird if I planned it? I've already accepted that I probably can't have one, but I still want one! Thanks! Oh I forgot to mention that me and my parents/sisters just moved 5 hours away from both our family and his family! (sorry, thats an important detail)

Hi. Why not have 2 showers? That is what my daughter did/had. ANYONE (really, not your mom though) can plan and host a shower for you. It doesn't have to be the MOH's or the bridesmaids, although I am assuming that your sisters are bridesmaids. But, in any case, it can be a friend, aunt, cousin...or your sisters! Why not have a shower back closer to where you used to live...or where most of YOUR family lives. I would really doubt that anyone would drive 5 hours for a shower, so your best bet is to go to where THEY live. Then, possibly someone from his side of the family will host a shower for you in the area that his family lives.

Dont put yourself down. Ask your mom to help your sisters plan your bridal shower. I am sure your mom would be more than happy to make you the best bridal shower ever! It would definitely be weird if the bride (you) plans her own bridal shower.

Every bride should have at least one shower. Talk to your mom and let her know that you really want to have a bridal shower and that you don't mind planning it but you would really love her help. You might want to ask your fiance mom to see if she is planning to have you one also. Do you have any other bridesmaid that can talk to your sisters about planning a shower for you. What about a best friend? Good Luck and if they don't want to plan one then plan it yourself. I know it's a lot of work but it will all pay off. Good Luck

Plan your shower yourself. best thing i've ever learned in my life is "if you want something done right, you've gotta do it yourself". Plan your own shower and send out invitations to everyone. Let them know where you registered at and be sure you can order online for the gifts incase your family members cant make it. Make sure you put into your invitations to rsvp by a certain day and then see how many guests you get. Call as it gets closer maybe a week before the shower and ask if people who havent rsvp's yet are coming. Hold it at your home incase a lot of people cannot make it. I'm sorry your sisters act like that. One day when they get married you can show them what a real maid of honor is like. Karma is a biatch.

Every bride deserves a shower. It would be perfectly fine for you to ask your mom to help you sisters plan a shower. You can also ask your closest friends to help out. You might not get all the guests from far away, but invite them all.

It is appropriate for sisters, aunts and friends to give you a shower.Maybe someone could do that for you.Not so much mothers though.At least it wasn't socially accepted that I know of.Some brides have 2 showers. One near your home and sometimes the grooms sisters, aunts ect. give one closer to their home.That way you and your mon can attend and get to know his family.
