Who Does the Planning

The maid of honor, a friend or co-worker, a sister, cousin, aunt, or a family friend can plan the bridal shower and it is just fine if it’s planned in a group with everyone involved. The bride, mother, and mother-in-law should be excluded from most of the party planning. The mothers can have some responsibilities but they should be limited and voluntary, keep in mind they are not obligated to help.

I know that nowadays, the rule that mothers don’t throw the bridal shower seems outdated but my thought is if the mother of the bride wants to help, of course let her help, but the main planning should fall on bridesmaids, friends, and family.
