Bridal shower????

Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure the maid of honor is supposed to be in charge of setting up the bridal shower. In my case, my sister who lives in Hawaii (I live in Jersey) is my maid of honor and probably won't make it to Jersey any time soon. So who will arrange my bridal showerhuh.gif? me?? Or should I ask someone else to host it?? I feel like that may be a bit inappropriate. Also, when should a bridal shower be held?

Other members of the wedding party can host the bridal shower instead of your sister. Also, the shower is supposed to be a month before the wedding date. I see you are getting married in 2010, have plenty of time.

 

You can have a shower even though you are doing a DW. If you are inviting friends and family, have a shower. I am debating on not having one only because my wedding will be my best friends and our family. But again, if there aren't limitations on your invite list, have a shower.

 

hope this helps

I didn't really want a shower because I felt coming to the wedding was enough for my guest.

 

I was told that I was having a shower whether I liked it or not. I didn't really want my BM's to plan/pay for one b/c they are all in similar spots to me (less than 5 years into their careers, just bought houses, etc.) So my mom has asked my aunts to host something. Only 1 of my aunts is able to make the DW and the others really wanted to do something.

I am having a shower even though I told my BM's that I don't need/want one... They are insisting. =)

 

In your case, is your sister the only one in your BP? If not.. maybe ask your sister to talk to the other BM's or your family and she can help them coordinate from afar.

 

I see you are in JC, you can always join in on mine. I used to live in downtown JC (loved it!) and one of my BM's lives there still and the other is in Hoboken!!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
