I am planning a June 2010 wedding and I dont think I have posted here before but I have a question about bridal showers. My MOH and BMs have offered to throw me a shower, as well as my FMIL and her daugher who is one of my bridesmaids (just with the women in her family, I know that some people think it is rude if family throws a shower, and I am not really here to argue about that, but this is less of a traditional shower, more of a their-side-of-the- family event). Also, it is likely that some of my mothers friends will also have a shower as they often do this for their friends children and have mentioned how they are looking forward to planning mine. My question is... should I be turning down one or more of these offers? I am not sure what the right thing to do is. I dont think the guest list would overlap much, but I am not exactly sure how it works with my close friends and family. I dont want to be rude or offend any of these groups of people, but I also dont want to seem like I am accepting too much.
Has anyone else received numerous offers for showers? Do you graciously accept them all? Do you say, I really appreciate your offer and so-and-so has also offered to plan a shower if you want to get in touch with them and help them out? Or turn down an offer? I guess I should probably just be thankful I have such a supportive group of friends and family.
