Here's what I found from an "A-Z Etiquette" guide website and the link in case you want to take a closer look:
Bridal Shower Etiquette - Who should host the party?
Traditionally the maid or matron of honor hosts the party.
Some experts state it is an absolute no-no for a family member to throw the bridal shower and other experts say the modern rule is more relaxed and the old rule can be ignored. Perhaps it is best to consult with families involved in order to decide how closely you should follow any of the old rules.
A bridal shower rule that has not changed is that the bride never hosts her own bridal shower.

That said, - all situations are different.
I've been invited (and attended) one shower that was hosted by the bride herself! While I think situationally it *might* be OK if a sister or mother did it, I would say without a doubt that throwing your own shower is the ultimate in tacky and you should never do it. As pointed out, the purpose of a shower is to "shower" the bride with gifts - so throwing your own shower (or having an immediate family member do it) is tatamount to saying "give me presents!" LOL.

My FI's Mom and Aunt are throwing me a shower, then my Aunts and Grandmother want to throw me one. I thought my friends might enjoy throwing me one, but I don't know if they will or not.
I think it would be nice to have a few, but I just want the punch that is involved with showers...YUM!! haha
