So my Maid/Matron of Honor (who lives up where we are getting married, 12 hours away) is putting together my shower/bachelorette party and she asked for my guest list to make sure she didn’t forget anyone. On my list, there’s about 20 people not from the area who I know are planning to be at the wedding as Out of Town guests. Even though I know they won’t be able to travel the 12 hours for the wedding AND the shower, should I still send invites to them anyway for the shower just to make them feel included?

Are you sure they wouldn’t want to attend? I would drop them an email or call them to ask. Something like: hey, we are putting together the guest list for my shower and while I don’t expect you to travel to be there, I didn’t want you to think you were left out. Would you like an invitation?

I’m only inviting family members that are OOT- I wouldn’t worry about someone feeling left out about the shower.

My mom is working the guest list for my shower, and I am upset on this point. I think its rude to exclude people from the list just because they are out of the area – I’m in the “Thought Counts” camp, she is in the “Only those who will make it” camp.

If you are positive they won’t make it, I wouldn’t invite them.
