- Wedding: October 2009
Some background first. My family held a bridal shower for me back in July. It was very nice and held near where most of my relatives live. I invited FMIL and my my future sister-inlaw ans they came. At the time I knew some friends were planning another shower in september. I had heard that etiquette states that people should only be invited to one shower, so that’s why I made sure that nobody was invited to both other than my mom who asked to be invited to both and than I asked his mom if she wanted to come to the second one as a courtesy, no gift required. Well apparently on Saturday FI’s brother and sister-in-law were out with some friends and friends wives who got invites to the second shower and she was hurt that she did not get an invite. To make matters more complicated FMIL and FI told her the invite got lost in the mail. I’m having the shower hostess send her an invite, but now I don’t know what to say. I was going to tell the truth, but if I do that FMIL will look bad. Ack. I’m beginning to hate everything wedding related. I have other issues on my side.
