How are you ladies so involved in your shower?

Especially the ladies getting married mid 2010?Has the bridal party already told you they're planning your shower, are you planning your own, etc?I know Court - you said you're looking at a dress for your shower. I thought they planned it closer to the date. Just curious b/c my bridal party hasn't said a word

    The only reason I would have any clue is bc I have to go up to NY for it. I think they'll do it closer to the wedding date. FMIL's friends in CT are planning one for me too, so I have to know about that one. Its in November. If I wasnt traveling, I probably wouldnt know.

    We are having mine early for 2 reasons. First, most of my bridal party is OOT and it's hard on them to fly out twice in the span of a month or 2. Second b/c the holiday's are right before my wedding and that's a crazy time for everyone. October was the easiest date. My mom booked the shower and venue and my girls are planning the games and events. I dont like surprises so I wanted to know when my shower was. :)

    I already told my mom and sister and girls I don't want it to be a surprise. Maybe I;m a party pooper? lol

    I don't know the details of my shower other than the date.  They are planing it for October so that it is not near any holidays.

    I only know the date also, because they had to coordinate with my work schedule...I wanted the rest to be a surprise =)

    My shower is this weekend (about 6 weeks before the wedding)! I didn't plan any of it other than giving some ideas for dates. I wanted to give my girls full rein. It's not a total surprise and I know more details now b/c FMIL let some details slip (Whoops!), but I don't know EVERYTHING that's planned.

    I'm not allowed to know ANYTHING, but I managed to get the date - Dec 28th, since I'll be home for Christmas. I have no idea about anything else!!

    That's so funny that you posted this. I literally just got off the phone with my sister and was emailing with Jillian about it. I had to give the date because of my work. Also, I wanted to make sure it didn't interfere with Passover, or Easter. And, both of my sister's (my MOHs) had friends get engaged recently planning February, March, and April weddings. I had to get my dates in there! Otherwise, now we're just trying to find a place and I think we found a person willing to have it at their huge house! Yay.

    My sisters & mom are throwing mine - but I am totally involved and telling them everything I want. I'm too picky- at least for my "main" shower. If my work friends, or other groups of friends decide to throw another one then that is fine... I don't have to be involved. But the main one definitely. I even have a link for the shower on my planning bio..LOL.

    mom is providing the venue, food, and flowers, MOH is planning everything else. i am totally butting in and involving myself in the plans because otherwise i'd end up with a "pin the penis on the blow-up doll" type games at my shower. i'd be mortified.i'm not being 'bridezilla' about it or anything though, MOH and mom have asked for my opinion on several of the decisions, which i of course love =)

    Sorry I'm so late!!! We decided to have mine SO early (6 months to the date!) because I wanted my FMIL & FSIL along with my best friend in florida and a few of my sorority sisters to come up to Philly... I didn't want to go into the holidays or winter (snow + FMIL = not a happy camper, lol) .... so, we picked October 24th :) I don't know much except when and where it is...and I can't waaaaait!!
