I have a bridal shower etiquette question. One of my close friends is bringing one of my “kind of friends” (she’s more like a friend of friend aquaintance) as her plus one to my wedding. Should I invite both girls to the bridal shower? I feel like it’s a gray area because I know that you are only supposed to invite those who are invited to the wedding, but this girl is going she just never received an actual invitation.

I wouldn’t invite her. There is no rule that every woman going to the wedding has to be invited to the shower. Plus, like you said, she isn’t exactly getting her own invite so you didn’t invite her to the wedding so it would be weird for you (or the person hosting your shower) to invite them to the shower.

I agree. Inviting women you aren’t really close to, regardless of whether they are invited to the wedding, is a gift request.

kitkat13: i wouldn’t invite her. i think the rule is more like, if you invite a woman to your shower she should be on the guest list for the wedding. not, she’s invited to the wedding so you have to invite her to the shower.
i’d treat her like anyone else’s plus one that you aren’t close to and see her at the wedding. 🙂

kitkat13: You don’t have to invite everyone who is coming to the wedding. You just shouldn’t send shower invitations to anyone who isn’t also going to receive a wedding invitation.

As others have said, I would not invite her. Only invite her if she is going to be invited to your wedding.
