    all the bridal showers that i've been to in my area where kept secret from the bride. mine is going to be a secret. But i like the idea of girls knowing about it so they can plan for it like picking out a really cute dress.

    the bridal shower is thrown for you so if someone wants to throw you one than i would let them, you dont have to have a big shower, you could just do a small one. Some girls have even had lingerie parties instead of bridal showers that might be fun!

      Ok, here's another question for you ladies....What's the difference between a
      Bridal Shower & a Bachlorette Party?
      Is the bridal shower when they give you your wedding gifts? Who's usually in charge of setting up both events and usually how long before the wedding should they take place?

        Bridal shower is gift giving, you get showered with gifts and a bachlorette party is more like a party, it's supposed to be your last night out as a single woman. But you can celelbrate it however you want, some girls do spa days, some go bar hopping, some have a house party. I think a bridal shower is about 1 to 2 mos before the wedding. and a bachlorette is usually a couple of weeks before the wedding.

        Bridal party is usually in charge of bachlorette party. and i would say that the bridal party and parents of bride and groom usually handle the bridal shower.

          Have you already sleected your bridal party? They will probably keep your bachelorette party a secret, but they might ask you about your shower. My friends asked me about dates I was available. I am also having an EC shower so they had to ask me in advance about that one...

            Registries are good for both showers and the wedding. Maybe some guests who cannot go to your weddding will use the registry to buy you a gift.

              i hate being the center of attention and didn't really want a shower. my aunt insists i have one and says we can make it a 'couples shower' with just family and close friends. so it will be kind of low key. but i know traditionally it is usually just for the ladies. as for the gifts i think many of us had the feeling that the presence at our wedding was gift enough - but a lot of family doesn't understand this and WANT to host a shower. its also nice for friends and family that can't make it to the dw.

                Boy am I glad this thread exists!
                Now here's a half-hypothetical question: if you're having a co-ed shower before the wedding, would you still have a local reception after your DW? If you were only going to do one or the other, which do you think is more important?

                  Well I am only having a MOH and no maids so I think my sis will prob ask me what's up but I am not into having a shower and an AHR. I just think it's too much - for me. I too really hate being the center of attention and I will be greatful for those who make the trip.

                  Having said that- My married friends have advised me to register for those that can't make the trip who would like to send a gift. So i did.

                  We really don't need that much "stuff" so to speak cause we have already lived together for 2 years. Oy .. wedding planning. So much ettiquette stuff right?
