I’m trying to figure out who should be invited to my bridal shower. My FMIL and one of my bridesmaids (FSIL) have graciously offered to host it in FI’s hometown (City A). I live about two hours drive away (City B) and my hometown (City C) is about seven hours drive away from both my house and the shower. Most of our friends live in City B, FI’s family lives closer to City A, and my family is concentrated in near City C. The wedding will be in City B.
Who should we invite to the shower beyond FI’s family and my mom? I don’t want to seem like I’m asking for gifts or make anyone feel pressured to make a long drive they don’t want to make. I also don’t want to exclude anyone who might expect an invite. The hostesses have asked for my input in the guest list so I want to do the right thing.
Did you have any similar geographic issues? How did you handle it? Who would you invite in this situation?
