    MOst of the showers I have been to were supposed to be surprises. The brides all knew accept for one. They acted surprised to make their mom's happy!

    WOW McKennaL...way to stereotype all "young" people. Like I said before, I would never ruin a surprise on purpose, I had just never heard of one before.

    I'm not young and I would never assume that a party will be a surprise party unless told otherwise.

    Here in PA, if a party is a surprise, it is written on the invitation. If it does not say so, it is not considered a surprise. I don't think you did anything wrong!

    I planned a surprise wedding shower last year. Total surprise. I wrote surprise on the invites and that was that.
    Yeah- she should have clarified that. You should never just assume! Not your fault- you know how many other ppl are going to make that call?

    Most of the showers say surprise on them. Really, most brides find out don't worry
    My friends already asked if I want mine to be a surprise.
