 Traditionally, your wedding shower is thrown by your maid of honor and bridesmaids, unless they are a member of your immediate family. Because a shower is a gift-giving occasion, it is not considered socially acceptable for anyone in your immediate family to host this event. If your mother or sisters wish to be involved, have them offer to help with the cost of the event or offer their home for it.

 The agenda usually includes some games and gift-opening. Be sure to have someone keep track of which gift is from whom.

 Things to Consider: You may have several showers thrown for you. When creating your guest lists, be sure not to invite the same people to multiple showers (the exception being members of the wedding party, who may be invited to all showers without the obligation of bringing a gift.) Only include people who have been invited to the wedding – the only exception to this is a work shower, to which all coworkers may be invited, whether or not they are attending the wedding.

 Options: Tea parties, spa days, cocktail parties, and traditional at-home events are all options – these days even men are being invited as coed showers become more and more popular! Generally an event is themed (lingerie, cooking, home decor) and the invitation should give guests an idea of what type of gift to bring.
