Baby shower question...edited with more info

My best friend April has been friends with me since we were 5. My friend Julia has been my friend for 11 years. Julia is throwing me a shower. I'm afraid that April will be a little hurt that Julia is throwing the shower and not her. I threw Julia's shower so I know it can be expensive. She wants to return the favor, but isn't in the best financial shape. Should I ask April if she wants to co-host? Or would that be wrong?

 Hmmm...not sure with that one lol. Maybe ask Julia if she would be willing to ask April if shed like to help, but not knowing you said something. Usually the person getting the shower has no say so she shouldnt be mad at you either way.

If she says something about helping then let her, otherwise I'd leave it. Some people just don't like planning parties (me included)

Every shower I have been to the hostess volunteered to do it. So if April hasn't volunteered she may not be able to. Believe it or not hosting a shower is expensive and time consuming. Not everyone has the means to do it, and some people are just not comfortable doing it.

Julia didn't ask April if she wanted to help? Maybe let April know her plans so she has the option of volunteering to help.

I should add the 2 don't know each other. Also, Julia isn't in the best financial shape. I threw her baby shower and so she wants to return the favor but I'm afraid it may be a strain on her.

Then talk to April and tell her the situation and ask her if she wants to help to call Julia and offer. It would be a great way to get the two of them together.

I don't think she'll be mad, but we have been through so much together. She has made a point to be involved in my life when my parents got divorced and I didn't want to be friends. I was a teenager then. I just don't want her to feel left out I reckon
