- Wedding: September 2009
Hi all! I teach pilates and yoga privately at a very tony gym. It’s sort of an "urban country club" sort of place. Many of my clients are friends now. I see them more than my family and friends actually!
Two of my co-workers just offered to host a shower for me at the gym’s hip restaurant. It will be casual, more like a drinks and appetizer thing that all the guests will sort of pay for their own I think.
My mom’s best friends are throwing me a shower. I knew about this and I invited some of my clients and all of my closest coworkers to that shower already. It will be a full luncheon catered and the like. Very traditional.
So now that I am having the second informal shower, do I invite the clients that I invited to the first shower too? It would be weird not to have them at the work shower, but I already invited them to the first one. I wanted these special people to meet my family before the wedding.
Someone said that I could and just say, "I would love to have you at both, but you can only give one gift." But that sounds weird to me to even mention the gift.
My co-workers said that I can invite clients that I did not invite to the wedding. That feels weird too! I read that if it’s a work shower, that you can invite everyone, but that just feels weird too.
Can anyone offer me insight?
