Two of my best friends are throwing a shower for me– a lingerie shower/passion party (spicier than I am in real life, but I love it!). My bachelorette party was last month in Tahoe and the theme was Disney (no penises), and this shower is racier and will be less than a week before the wedding, which is backwards from what most people do, but I don’t mind. They are throwing the shower so close to the wedding so my sister/MOH can attend since she lives out of town.
The girls who are planning it want to know the names and addresses of anyone else I would like to invite beyond the girls who were at my bachelorette. There are some girls who are wives/girlfriends of my fiance’s good friends. Should I invite them? It would be maybe four or five. I don’t know them as well as the bachelorette girls, but I do know them and like them and they will be at the wedding. Should I ask my friends to just invite the really close friends (bachelorette) girls or should I invite all the girls who live in town and are coming to the wedding?

@margsie: I’m having one as well, only my closest girl friends will be there. We thought it would be better with a smaller group, and definitely not grandma…

Yeah I agree- it will be more fun if everyone feels comfortable that they can kind of let loose with the theme!

I am trying to figure out the same thing. My shower will be two days before the wedding so that my family can come. At this point I am going to invite the bridal party, female relatives on both sides and the wives and gf’s of his closest friens. I figure that it will break the ice!!

Very helpful, thanks everyone!
@Ms. Valentin: YES! That’s what I want to do. They’re all cool girls and it will give me a chance to get to know them better before the wedding.

For mine women in town and women in the family are invited…and that includes grandma! My grandmother is barrels of fun and has the soul and look of someone much younger and my family is really tightly knit so pretty much all of our celebrations (which turn out to be almost every weekend) include the whole family. Did I mention we all did shots together for New Year’s Eve including grandma and grandpa? Fun group.
