bridal shower etiquette
You all have such good insight here and, trying to not compound a SIL's breech of etiquette, how do I convey to said SIL that, as the MOB, she is not to give the bridal shower? She thinks she is the epitome of all that is proper. I assure you that she is not; however, she seems to have convinced others in the family that she is always correct (or they refuse to stand up to her). I had been talking with some of the other aunts to put together the bridal shower when I received an email from the MOB that indicates the shower planning is well under way (the date has been set). I have no desire to fund an elaborate shower at the direction of a pompous MOB (knowing that the direction is coming from the bride who I consider to be a rude and ungrateful child). Your suggestions? Thanks.
