@SouthernGirl:  You need to have a conversation with her and let her know what the situation is. You girls can have a really fancy dinner somewhere and celebrate your upcoming wedding. It will much less expensive and can still be just as special. 

Something simple:

october bridal shower table decor... burlap runner, & white mini pumpkins

@SouthernGirl:  Just send her the list you have. She may already have in mind something small and intimate. I’m a a super overly party planner. I had a party for 8 people last weekend, I sent formal invites, had place settings, etc. We had a WONDERFUL time.

@SouthernGirl:  If it isn’t until February, maybe there is some time to cancel the space. She is aware of your situation and she still chose to plan it anyway…that’s not really your fault. If she won’t cancel it and do something smaller and low key, then just show up with those closest to you! It’s quality, not quantity.

@SouthernGirl:  Ah this sucks. I’m like you in that I wouldn’t have a ton of people to invite and FI is the same so we didn’t do the big engagement party or anything. Hopefully your MOH is listening to you and planned a nice intimate brunch or something.

But I would definitely send the list over so she knows exactly how many people you’re inviting. That might help her make a decision to change it if she did book someplace big.

I wouldn’t worry about inviting a bunch of extra people that you don’t want to, but I don’t see the groom’s mom, aunts or sisters on the list of people you mentioned.  Those women are traditionally invited to a shower.

@SouthernGirl:  I’ll come:) And bring you a sweet gift.  Just start a board, who wants to come to my bridal shower and you can have a Wedding bee’s only bridal shower, lol:) No but really I feel your pain.  I don’t have a ton of girlfriends…never have…a lot of them have either A.Turned on me, betrayed me ..  B. Stopped being my friend bc their boyfriend said some comment about thinking I was attractive or cool or C. never really was my friend and only was my friend to find out sh*t about my life so they could go back and tell all their gossipy bitchy friends… Lol plain and simple good girlfriends are hard to find.  I have NEVER betrayed my girlfriends, flirted with their dudes, done anything shady, tried to compete with them period.  I wish I could say the same for other women to me:(
