I’m having 2 bridal showers – one hosted by my best friends for the ‘friend group’ and another hosted by my mom and sister for ‘family’.
A different friend approached me about hosting any sort of bridal shower event (she isn’t aware of the parties currently being planned). I’m planning to tell her about the 2 showers being planned…. but was also thinking it would be fun to have a lingerie-themed event. But, the issue is that the invitees would be repeats from the friend shower……
This is party overkill – right???

Dude. Party overkill doesn’t exist.
DO IT! 🙂

i think it’s fine if you space the parties out some. your friend offered to host it for you! seems fine to me.

I think it is overkill if the same friends are going to be invited–unless you didn’t expect them to get you gifts twice.

I don’t think the parties themselves are overkill, but the gifts might be. Maybe the 3rd party could be a tea or something instead of a shower, that way the invite list can overlap without the expectation of multiple gifts.

I know as a friend I wouldn’t appreciate having to buy gifts for a normal shower and then a lingerie shower. So if the lingerie one has different friends being invited to it then it’s probably ok. Otherwise I’d have it be a non-gift event.

i think it depends on if everyone will be invited to all of the parties. could you have the lingerie shower be part of the bachelorette party?
