My Fiance comes from a huge family. 90% of his aunts and uncles live out of town (12 hours away) and I have never met them. However, they were close to my fiance when he was a child. We are inviting them to the wedding, but should I invite the aunts to my bridal shower? They have never met me, and I feel strange sending them an invite, like I’m some stranger inviting them to a party so they can send me a gift! What’s the policy here?

Any female invited to the wedding is game for being invited to a shower. It’s not rude to invite them! It’s only bad taste to invite someone to a shower that’s not on the invite ;ist for the wedding.

we’re only inviting in town people to the shower. i feel like it’s hard for people to make so many trips for wedding related things, and i don’t want people to think that they have to send a gift if they can’t make it. but it is a good chance to get to know his family in a more intimate setting than the wedding.

I’m trying to figure that out myself! My FMIL’s good friend and my FI’s kind of adoptive grandmother wants to throw us a wedding shower together. I won’t know .. like any of them. And only like 3 are invited to the wedding, I don’t know what to do.

I would just invite your close family and friends that are being invited to the wedding. You can always ask you FI if there are any family members he would really like you to invite. We sent an invite to my DH’s aunt, grandma & cousin that live in PA (we live in CA) knowing they couldnt come but it showed that we wanted them there if they lived closer.
