Bridal Showers: How to Throw a Wedding Shower For a Long-Distance Bride

A maid of honor is tasked with throwing a bridal shower for her friend — from across the country

(page 1 of 2)

Once upon a time, families lived in close proximity to one another. When there was a special occasion to be celebrated, traveling wasn’t an issue. It’s a much different story today, however — families are spread all over the map and often can’t attend every function. It is because of this that new traditions have evolved.

Dear Wedding Guru: “Several years ago, my very closest friend moved across the country. Nevertheless, I feel as close as ever to her. She asked me to be her maid of honor for her wedding, which will be held here in her home state. I’m delighted to participate, but distance has created the first of what may be several issues. I told her I’d like to throw a shower, but it’s just too costly for her to fly home. I’d like to somehow work this out even though she can’t make it. Any ideas?”
