The maid of honor and often bridesmaids share the responsibility of hosting the bridal shower, according to tradition. Surprisingly though, it’s common for a bride to have more than one bridal shower. In that case, the host(s) should make sure that there is no duplication of guests on each list. The guest list should be filled with the bride’s nearest and dearest family and friends whereas the menu should be filled with the sweetest of treats. (Tip: Every guest that is invited to the bridal shower should already be on the wedding guest list.)  Invitations, including registry information, should be sent out six weeks to one month in advance. One of guests’ favorite rituals at a bridal shower is making a bouquet out of ribbons and bows from the opened gifts so the bride can use it at the rehearsal.  However, it’s perfectly acceptable to start your own ritual.
