Bridal shower etiquette? Mommy&Stinkbug 1 child; Fredericksburg, Virginia 6049 posts

I'm thinking about throwing my own due to circumstances in my previous post.
I'm looking at a place that wil do everything for me I just give them a guest list number and pay.
Previously.. When someone was planning it for me I was asked for my list and told every woman I invite to the wedding should be invited to the shower.. Is that true?
If I invite 20 reserve the space for 20 and only 14 come I'm still paying for 20.. So I'd like to chop my list a bit for people I know won't come

! No, proper etiquette is that anyone invited to the shower is already invited to the wedding. Not the other way around. :-) And if people are PC, they bring a gift to both shower and wedding (which I didn't know when I let people throw me three showers!). If your goal is not gifts, make it a tea party or something instead of a shower. :-)



Good luck on throwing it yourself. I didn't see your prior circumstances post(s).

You only invite your closest family and friends to the shower. Otherwise it would be a HUGE shower.
