I'm not sure how to approach this situation: My MIL and step-mom want to throw me a baby shower. (My mother is throwing me a small baby shower where she lives.) We decided to invite everyone (not just women) out of our family, friends and family friends to the shower to make it more of a function. They're also renting a hall and ordering a meal rather than just finger food.
My question is: Since this is turning out to be a bigger party than I originally anticipated (I was thinking someone's living room and finger food), do you think I have a say-so in what goes into the decor, food, games, etc.? I've been to other showers where the mom-to-be did not plan a thing, but those were small showers. I hate to sound like a control freak, but its hard for me to hand over the reigns when it comes to party planning. What do you think, or what did you do in a similar situation?
