Who plans the bridal shower?
The maid of honor traditionally hosts the bridal shower
, but she’s not required to do so. It used to be considered poor wedding etiquette and gift-grabby for family members of the couple to host the shower, but now it’s becoming increasingly more appropriate. Mothers and sisters of the bride are hosting showers in the bride’s hometown so her local friends and family members can attend. Some brides even have more than one shower -- one planned by the groom’s mom, for example, and another planned by her best friend. More than one girl can plan and host the party, in which case they can split up the bill.
