I'm getting married in a little over 3 months and I'm experiencing miscommunications about a bridal shower. All of my girls are all over the place, so their "responsibilities" are to show up at the wedding (at my request, not theirs), have a fantastic time, and I have everything else handled. However, the one thing they have all expressed interest in is a bridal shower....but not hosting/planning. They have asked me to tell my mother to call them if/when she needs any help with it. I was under the assumption that bridal showers SHOULD NOT be hosted by family members. Is this still the case? If so, what is a good way of telling my bridesmaids that no-one is hosting a shower. As I mentioned, they are spread out all over the state (4-5 hours away) and I don't want to give them the responsibility to plan something in another city. Any ideas??
