Does the bride know about the bridal shower?
Shower Etiquette for the Bride
The bride does not help plan the shower, as the shower is a sort of gift to the bride. Whoever plans the shower can choose to make it as much of a surprise as they wish. Other brides may want to know more information like the date, theme, guests, and other details of the itinerary.
Do you get the host of your bridal shower a gift?
Should you bring a hostess gift to your bridal shower? Short answer: Yes. If you're the guest of honor, it's considered good bridal shower etiquette to bring a small token of gratitude for your host.
