  • Wedding: July 2010

My understanding is that Bridal Showers are mainly for relatives of the Bride and her close/good friends.

I’m having two showers as well: one in April and one in July. The only long distance relatives I sent a shower invitation to were my grandmother and the groom’s grandmother because they specifically requested one even though they’ll be attending the shower closer to the wedding.

The best thing for uncertainty is to ask your Fiance and his mom. My FI’s mom called up her relatives for all things address/invite related. Hopefully, she’ll be happy to answer your questions and help you out. 🙂

Ok, I would say do not invite the aunts.  If they live in MI, I don’t think they’d come for the shower.  And it might come across like you’re just looking for a gift, knowing they’ll probably decline.  (Not that you are.)  But maybe you should ask Future Mother-In-Law.  Sometimes families are weird and people get offended if they are invited.

I would also probably just leave off the friends who are hosting a dinner for you.  But I’m not really sure on that one.  And are these gals you friends, or just that they’re the SOs of the friends?  If you aren’t that close to them, I’d leave them off.
