Hey there! My mom and FMIL are arguing over where to have my bridal shower. My friends, FH’s family, and I live in Dutchess County whereas my family all live in Bergen County NJ. To appease both sides we’re going to have the bridal shower in Rockland or Orange County sometime in March. However, I have NO IDEA what’s in that area/ what to do for bridal shower. Any ideas/ place suggestions are greatly appreciated

    Hi Maggie!

    I’m sorry that there was an argument over the bridal shower, however, I’m happy everyone was able to come to a compromise

    What have you always wanted to do for your shower? Are you searching for a restaurant or some other type of venue? Who is hosting the shower? Will it be your mom and FMIL?

    I honestly never thought I would get married so i’m Super flexible with whatever everyone else wants to do, i’m just happy I found my forever person! My mom will be the primary planner but my FMIL does want to help as well. There’s also a confusion on who gets invited- I Thought it was just close female family and your bridal party. My MIL wants me to invite every female that is invited to the wedding! Is that normal?

    I was thinking maybe a vineyard or a winery because there’s SO MANY in the area and everyone likes wine my sister had a brunch one at a restaurant so that’s also an option. We’re going to have it sometime in March because we’re getting married end of April and I don’t want people traveling in the wintertime
