My fiance has been married before and already did the wedding shower thing, etc. So does that mean that if I want a wedding shower because I’ve never been married before, I have to do it with just my side of the family? I feel like it’s inappropriate to expect gifts from his side because they already did that once. His parents aren’t giving us anything because they did the first time around with his first wedding. I understand but it still seems sad in way. Like it takes away some specialness from me. Big baby lol

I’d be disappointed. Sure, he’s been married before, but not to you! This is a new beginning and I don’t quite understand why they wouldn’t give you a gift just because they’ve been through this before…
In your situation I’d definitely have a bridal shower (every bride to be is entitled to a shower if it’s what they want) and I would extend the invitation to their side. If they come, then that’s fantastic but if they decline at least you offered them to be involved and I suppose you’d just have to understand that they view this situation different than you do.

@Jenniferashlee: As far as I know the shower is more for the bride anyway. yes there are a lot of house and home gifts but all ladies attend. i would think invite his side and not be offended if they choose not to show

Wait and see if his family offers to plan a shower for you. Otherwise, whoever offers to plan your shower on your side of the family can add your fiance’s family to the guest list.
