Who Hosts the Bridal Shower? (Hint: It’s Not Mom)

You might be surprised with the answer. (Sorry, Mom, you’re out!)



(page 1 of 2)

The premise behind wedding showers hasn’t really changed much over the years. It’s still a lovely way to have an intimate get-together and celebrate the beginning of a new family. There are some alternatives, of course — such as a coed shower — but the guidelines remain the same.

A Hudson Valley mother-of-the-bride writes: “I’m a bit confused. I just got an invitation from a dear friend, the mother of a prospective bride. The invitation was for a bridal shower that she’s throwing for her daughter. My daughter is getting married later this year and I’m under the assumption that it’s not correct etiquette for me to host her shower. Have the rules changed? Am I mistaken?”
