I have a quick question pertaining to two different bridal showers!!
My family and my fiance’s family live in two separate cities,(San Antonio and Houston). I am having a bridal shower in Houston coming up and am going to have a shower in San Antonio.
Unfortunately it is pretty split sice no one likes to travel these days. Split meaning only my side of friends and family will becoming to my Houston bridal shower…including my bridesmaids.
My question is…should I also invite my bridesmaids to my other bridal shower? I really don’t want them to have to buy ANOTHER gift and I am almost 100% sure they won’t come because of school and the drive. I am not sure what the etiquette is on this.
Any information/advice would be wonderful!!

I think you should invite your BMS to the other shower even if they wont’ be able to come. You don’t want to make it seem like just because they went to one, they’re not welcomed to come to the other.
Invite them and let them know it’s not mandatory, but the doors are open to welcome them if they choose to join.

i think they should be invited and you should let them know that it would be a gift in itself if they were able to make it. that way it would be their choice. maybe some of them would be able to carpool? i was a bridesmaid for my cousin who had three showers, and i attended all of them and took a small gift to each, but some of the other bridesmaids only attended 1 or 2 depending on their availability.

okay! Thanks so much, I just was not sure if you invite them to all of them…although it seems like a stupid question… I just wanted to make sure!
I’ll let them know that them being there is a big enough present 🙂
