My FMIL wants to give me a bridal shower. I am not much for tradition but isn't the MOH suppose to do this?
I told my MOH I didn't want one so I am not sure what to say to FMIL. She was so excited looking at bridal shower stuff I don't want to burst her bubble but I would much rather spend the weekend in my PJ's watching movies.
Should I just suck it up and let her plan the party? Thanks, Carla

If my FMIL asked to throw one I'd have her AND my MOH throw me one each! LMAO I'm such a girl, I know...

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

My in-laws live about 8 hours away, so she hosted for his side of the family. As it turned out, none of DH's extended family came, so this was the only wedding related thing they did for us.
His mom doesn't have any girls, so she was really excited about planning. I wasn't really wanting a shower but couldn't let her down. It was just a few hours out of my day and I got some cool stuff, so I say go for it.
You don't have to have another shower.

Just say I really appreciate the offer but I don't want one, she can hardly get upset with that

I let my family, MoH know that, in no uncertain terms that there will be no shower for me - unless it resembles more of a BBQ/co-ed drinking party. However, my FI's brother's girlfriend, who Im sure is my FMIL's secret agent and drives me crazy asked the other day if I would allow a shower and of course I said no. His side of the family is crazy - hehe.
Bottom line - do what you want, not what other people want or think you should do.
