I just read on a wedding etiquette website that it is never OK for a mother of the bride to host her bridal shower. However, My dad & step-mom (who raised me) are paying for the majority of the wedding, along with my fiance's parents. My mother practically begged me to let her throw my bridal shower, because she wanted to contribute and be "in charge" of something. Is it OK to break the rule in this case??
Also, does anyone have ideas for how to make my bridesmaids (esp. my MOH) be involved, even though they aren't hosting the shower? I want them to feel involved and like they contributed, but I'm not sure how to go about it.
