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

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.
