I am living far away from my hometown, where I will be getting married. My sister and MOH lives far away, with me. The rest of our family (a VERY large family--aunts, cousins, etc) ALL of them, live in my hometown. My bridesmaids are not in my hometown either.
My sister/MOH has offered to organize a bridal shower involving my friends where we live, but may or may not be able to travel back for shower before the wedding due to work.
If no one in my hometown offers, do I ask someone to host? IS that appropriate? It has been tradition for all my cousins who recently got married to have a family bridal shower, but I'm not sure who to ask or how to find a host....maybe no one has offered because I'm the lame duck who lives so far away and they don't know about my plans.
