I am a bridesmaid for my friend and the bride told me that I and the other bridesmaids should give her the shower. I was kinda shocked when she said that, I was under the impression that the MOH and bridemaids threw the personal shower and bachelorette, but not the regular shower. I am getting married soon also, and we have the same bridesmaids. I do not expect them to pay for a shower for me, I think that is a lot to ask because they have to do the bachelorette party and buy dresses and a shower gift themselves.
I'm confused, maybe it is different depending on what part of the country you live, but in my experience the mother of the bride or groom or a family member threw the shower. That is all I have ever known.
The problem is, too, that the bride lives in a different state from the rest of us, so I don't know where and how to go about giving her a shower, nor how many family members she would want to invite.
