this is happening to me too. My maid of honor said “your other bridesmaids invited these girls is that ok”. Then I feel like a giant jerk because I haven’t invited them to the wedding and our mutal friend (my bridesmaid) thinks they’re invited to the wedding.

I feel your pain…

I don’t even know why the host invited girls you don’t really know.  I thought these things are supposed to be an intimate affair…

I would talk to the hostess and let her know that you are uncomfortable about people who you do not know and aren;t invited to the wedding have been invited to the shower. It is pretty rude of her to put you in this situation.

@NavyBride2013:  Normally I would be like, uh oh. But this faux pas is from your hostess, not you. I would just shrug it off. Just because the hostess took it upon herself to invite people without asking you, does not mean that you need to feel obligated to invite them to the wedding, or feel bad about the fact that they don’t have one.

@NavyBride2013:  I am having a very small wedding.  A friend of mine is throwing me a shower even though she knows she isn’t invited to the wedding.  She knows this and so do all my other friends who are invited and they still are thrilled to be a part of this celebration.

don’t worry about it. your MOH invited them, not you. you don’t have to invite them to the wedding.
