So I am recently engaged and have had several people offer to throw bridal showers. What is the etiquette on who throws the shower and who gets invite? My Aunt has offered to throw a couple shower with immediate and extended family. My mother's friend is wanting to throw a luncheon for me, that would include my mother's friends and coworkers. My best friend is wanting to throw a lingerie shower , that would include my close friends. My grandmother's friend would like to host one that would include the members of the clubs ( DAR, and Doll ) that she is in. That is where it gets tricky, I know only a few of these ladies and would feel awkward receiving gifts from them. Also, if they are invited to a shower isn't it proper that they be invited to the wedding as well??
