I know, it's not supposed to be "good etiquette" but I'm starting to worry. I would really like to have a bridal shower -- a way for my local friends to get together before my wedding (we are getting married where we live, but most of family and friends live OOT). I have two bridesmaids that are local, but my MOH is two states away. My local bridesmaids claimed they were going to throw me a shower but we're 2 1/2 months out and no shower. In addition, my mother is going to Alaska in 3 weeks and will be gone for a month (and she lives 400 miles away.) What do I do? Forget the shower, even though I would really like to have one? (And, no, it's not because of gifts).
