I am 6 months pregnant and none of my friends or family have offered to throw me a baby shower. What’s the general etiquette? Am I meant to organise my own or are my friends/family meant to offer to organise one for me? Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Ask your question

  • A friend usually does buy you can do your own



  • Anyone can do your baby shower. If a friend or family member offers to do the organising, lucky you, go for it. But if you want to organise it, go for it too. I don’t think there’s a someone who ‘should’ do it



  • I organised my own if I didnt I would have had one,



  • No you should not have to organise your own, your mum, sister or close friend/s should. It is to celebrated you and also your baby on the way



  • You throw it darling!



  • My best friend & sister are organising mine.



  • i think the god parent should throw you a party



  • there are some good comments here



  • i dont have anyone to throw me one so i dont know



  • I had my mum and sister help me to it. I couldn’t let someone take the whole burden of organising and cooking all the food for it.



  • If you really want a baby shower & no one offers, I don’t see any problem with throwing your own :D



  • Did you end up having one for yourself or did someone offer to hold it for you?



  • a close family member of mine organised mine with my mum. she offered very early in my pregnancy and i was just like yes go for it. maybe you could mention it to your mum or a close friend or throw it yourself. if no one had offered to do mine i would of thrown one for myself. you could always do a couples one and your hubby could organise it.



  • how did it go :)



  • i would be honest and tell close friends and family how much you’d love to have a baby shower and ask what they would suggest
