It is NOT tacky for you to give your daughter a bridal shower,
especially if she wants one. If it is tacky for family members togive bridal showers then I’ve gone to a lot of “tacky” bridals
showers in the last 20 years — most of the ones I’ve gone to HAVE
been hosted by family members.Do it for your daughter & don’t worry about what others will say.
Give her some good memories & take a few pictures.
There hasn’t really been much decorating at the ones I’ve been to,just using what the house it was being held at was decorated with.
Soem memorable ones have included games with the bride being asked
questions about her fiance’ and making a white tissue paper dress.I had food that was elaborate, food that was simple, and food hat
was inbetween, food that fir the season, etc.
There were prizes for the person who’d come the farthest, who gotthe most right in the games — usually 3 to 4 prizes. The
gifts/prizes were deicded upon by the hosts of the party — I really
liked the gifts that weren’t “cutsey” decorations as not everyonelikes those things. I liked the little gift baskets, like you can
buy at a $1 store & fill with items while you’re there, especially
having several of a different theme: I’ve seen one where they had astationary-type basket, a popcorn & movie basket, soaps & body washes
basket, scrapbooking basket, knitting/crocheting basket, a gardening
basket, and a few othrs I can’t recall, but this is the basic idea.Whatever you decide to do, I’m sure your daughter will be happy.
Good luck with your plans.

> My daughter is getting married in May, and being that her friendsdo not live near us, I would like to throw her a shower. I was told
that that is tacky for a family memeber to throw a shower, but she
really wants a shower, so I’m giving her one anyways. It will be asmall wedding, so the shower will be small also. I am looking for
low cost decorating ideas and gifts for the guests. Any help and
input is appreciated.>
