bride’s arrival time at her shower

There have been a few disagreements about this. A lot of people have told me that the bride is supposed to arrive last to her bridal showers, about 15min later. When I got to my first shower a few minutes late the MOG said I should have been the first one there. Could you tell me if what time the bride is supposed to arrive at her own shower? I have a few more showers to go. Thank you.

Dear Bride,

There is no rule about when you should arrive. But, there is a rule about family hosting bridal showers. This is viewed as self serving. So, if any those multiple showers are hosted by a close family member you may want to re-think it.

Best wishes,
