Who gets invited to the bridal shower?
My fiance and I are having a small (50 people) wedding and dessert reception for just our immediate family and closest friends. So who can I invite to the bridal shower? Only the people invited to the wedding or all my girl-friends and woman family members?
- I would only invite people to your shower that will be invited to the wedding. Your girlfriends and other family members may decide to throw you a shower on their own or give you gifts outside of the shower, knowing they will not be invited to the wedding, but that is up to them.10
- The "polite" answer should be: Only the people invited to the wedding, but, If some of your friends are not invited and they know you don't have enough money to spend in a big party, you should invite them to your bridal shower and explain them you want to celebrate this special occasion with every one of them because you love them (not because the present).01
- Well I been to several bridal showers. At one bridal shower, the brides maids hosted it. The bride didn't even know about it. That one was females only. At the other one, the sister of the bride hosted it. But that one was more like a family reunion than a bridal shower. There were kids everywhere, and adults both males and females there. I think that the bride got embarrassed when she opened her gifts in front of everyone because it was lingerie and stuff. However, I do know some brides that hosted it themselves. Hope this answers your question. Hope you the best!02
- i think you should only invite the people that are invited to the wedding to the shower.
I had that happen to me once, I was asked to go to my friends wedding but not invited to the shower, I felt very left out and hurt. needless to say I didn't go to her wedding either. I figured if i wasn't good enough to go to her shower, then she doesn't need a $50 gift from me.
I think you should have a separate get together, less formal, for example, just have drinks at home, for your girlfriends and family members. then if they want to celebrate with you they won't be left out.11
- no anyone invited to the bridal shower MUST be invited to the wedding. a bridal shower's purpose is to receive more gifts.. if you invite people to the bridal shower but not the wedding they're going to assume all you care about is the gift and they're not important enough to share your special day with you.31
- Mother of Bride and Groom, Grandmothers, Close Aunts and Cousins of bride, Bridesmaids. I wouldn't even invite any friends other than bridesmaids since the wedding is so small.00
- Any and everyone you want to invite. This is YOUR party - and you should have both first list and final veto over the guest list. Especially if you are having a small wedding and there are women you really would like to invite to celebrate with you without being able to invite them to the actual ceremony.
I say ask whomever you'd like to see or you'd have the most fun with. The party should be all about you and your groom-to-be so invite those who will make it a good memory :)
- It's your bridal shower, you can invite whoever you want. Since you are having a small wedding, maybe you could invite your friends/family that won't be coming to that.00
- Invite whomever you want, however you shouldn't invite anyone to the bridal shower who isn't invited to the wedding. If they're not close enough to be invited to the wedding then they needn't be at the bridal shower. Plus, its considered rude to just invite them to the pre-wedding festivities but not the actual main event. It can make people feel unwanted, or feel like you're just inviting them for the presents. You can invite basically any female relatives, friends, etc to whom you are extending a wedding invite.
Best of luck and congrats!! :)20
