Tally your resources. Who's contributing to this thing, financially and time and effort wise? Do the couple's mothers have strong opinions (or money) to contribute? It's not unusual for moms to have a bunch of thoughts, so it's wise to check that out in advance. Beyond that, what can all the wedding party members afford to do or contribute? If no one's around to join you on craft nights, you may want to rethink those elaborate DIY favors. If all of the wedding party is on tight on budgets, don't try to rent out the Ritz_Carlton for an afternoon of oysters.
Before you start planning, make sure the bride wants a shower in the first place. A bridal shower is often a fun afternoon, but some brides might feel uncomfortable with all the attention or greedy for asking their friends and family for more gifts.
