Pre-wedding Parties

Suprise Shower and

We are planning a suprise shower for the bride. Is this ok? She has given us a comfortable time for her.  During teh busy time of her wedding.
I am the mom of the groom and we are pretty close. Her sister andI are planning this. I do not know if we will have enough time to do the whole ting.
Please let me know.
thank You.

    Anyone can host a shower for the bride, except the bride. Just make sure that anyone invited to the shower is also invited to the wedding.

    Just be sure that she at least knows to dress nice and look pretty that day.  I would be so upset if someone let me show up at my surprise shower in sweats with no hair and make-up because I thought we were just running to the store or out for coffee or something.

    What do you mean by "The busy time of her wedding"?  And why do you think you won't have enough time to do this?  I need more information before I can answer this.

    Honestly, before I came to the Knot I thought ALL showers were surprises, haha. Everyone in my family had a surprise shower and I prefer it that way, but you generally do know when it is coming. Just make sure you are well dressed for any mundane tasks you think you might be doing every Sat and Sun for the 2 months leading up to your wedding! Just kidding- but if it is a surprise, I'm sure your host will think to have an outfit ready for you. My mom is hosting my surprise shower, she better know to have a pretty dress and a straightening iron on deck!

    Oh wait, you are the host- duh! If her sister is helping, have her have the proper clothes ready and makeup. Also, I doubt she will be upset that her "busy time" is interrupted for a party in her honor- one where she will be showered with gifts         nontheless!

    Is there a way that you can ask her to an event where she'd wear the same type of attire without giving anything away?  Or could you ask her to a random event and then have her sister show up that morning and say, "It's your shower!!"

    Sometimes enlisting the help of the FI can work well too unless he's the type to say, "Girl stuff is dumb"
