We are having a destination wedding in December. I know that we are not suppose to invite people to our shower(s) if we are not planning on inviting them to the wedding. We are very limited in the number of people that can be invited to our wedding due to location and size. Yet, both of our parents want to have showers for us. Can we call this shower something else, where it would be acceptable to invite others? Or is it okay to invite these people and then send them an announcement after the wedding?

I think that in certain situations, it’s okay to have a shower with guests who aren’t invited, as long as they are fully aware of the situation. For example, I am the Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding next month, and I threw a shower for the bride that involved a bunch of the girls from our degree program who I knew she wanted to celebrate with but couldn’t fit them all on the guest list. All of the girls knew that they weren’t going to be invited to the wedding and that the bride just wanted a chance to celebrate with them as well, and it worked out great!
