    No I wouldn't charge guests. Skip it if that is the case! My bridal party is paying for it.

    I was thinking of not havign one because Im in the same situation as well and I really can"t cover the cost at this time. However my sister hosted hers at Perricones and charged the guests $25 per person and she actually had a really good turn out, but I'm still on the fence whether to have one or not.

    I'm not having one, and would definitely not attend if I was being charged to attend...I'm from the midwest though, so we have different ideas of what's okay and what's not okay.

    Just skip it.  Do not charge your guests.

    I'm having a shower but my mom/girls are paying for it.

    Like the other girls have mentioned, don't charge the guests.

    I would never charge guests but you would be surprised at how many people actually do this. I've talked to a lot of my friends about this and no one has ever had an issue with it... personally, I wouldn't want to pay to attend a shower and also buy a gift.

    Charging for my bridal shower is a huge no no for me!

    I have attended bridal showers that have been held at a home and brought a shower gift, and I have also attended bridal showers held at restaurants where I paid lets say $25 (gift included).  This shower gift does not replace the wedding gift.

    Don't charge. But why is it all on your MOH? Is she able to ask the other girls in the bridal party for help? Have a small, intimate one (if you have one at all) but dont charge!

    I'm not because my girls can't afford to throw one. Plus we don't need anything for the house. Since we don't need anything we didn't register for anything.

    I have actually never been to a shower that didn't charge. But I guess in my culture that's common place. I personally have never had a problem with paying, nor do I know anyone that has had a problem with paying.

    However, if you don't agree with charging guests, forgo it all together. It's def. not mandatory to have one.

    HTH! GL!

    I will not be having a shower because all the guests that would be going to the shower live in pretty much every city all over the East Coast!  There's no location that would be convenient for the majority, so I decided to skip it.  My mom's dissappointed that I won't be having one, but I can't ask everyone to travel just for a bridal shower!

    I had the post a few days ago about not wanting a shower. I didn't want one because I wanted to keep everything simple and instead had our bridal party and mothers fighting and not compromising on dates, money, venue etc. You girls and my MOH helped me decide to have one. I've stepped away from trying to keep the peace and asked them to be civil adults. Enough about me... Laughing

    I would not charge people to attend. Instead try to do something more simple. Maybe someone's home or community club house? Or maybe a park. One that we looked into was $40 and hour. I did my cousins shower a few years ago at my parents house and did cake and food from Publix/Sams. I probably spent less than $500 and we had a great time.
