Social Etiquette and Good Manners/Bridal Shower


Hello.  I am hosting a bridal shower for my daughter in law to be.  What is the correct way of mentioning that on the invitation?

Thank you for your question.  A mother-in-law can host a bridal shower for her relatives and friends. Generally the first bridal shower is given by the maid of honor and the bridesmaids.

Just your name as the host is fine, there is no need to mention future mother-in-law.
