I’m having 2 showers, one close to home hosted by my 2 MOH’s and my Mom, the other about 2 hours away in FI’s hometown hosted by his step-mom’s best friend, his aunt and his step-mom. Obviously all 4 of my BM’s (including the 2 MOH’s) are invited to the home shower.
But are the girls supposed to be invited to the other shower too? I mentioned having the MOH’s with me to his step-mom today and she said it would probably be ok, but she’d have to ask the best friend (who’s house it’s at).
Is it normal for the BM’s and MOH’s to not be invited to all the showers? I always thought at least the Maid/Matron of Honor went to the shower to help write down who gave what and so on. What have you bees experienced?

Well I asked if at least my 2 MOH’s could come with and they said yes today. Has anyone experienced not inviting the BM’s to showers?

I don’t think I’ve ever been to a shower where the bridal party wasn’t invited. I would invite them to both but let them know that they do not have to give you two presents (one at each shower).

In talking with my friends who have been recently married, the BMs usually attended both showers (both family and friends, or both sides of the family). Do you think they’d have a problem with the rest of your BMs coming? (it’s only two more people?) I would have for your two non-MOH BMs to be left out!

i think its kind of rude that they didnt invite your BMs. Ive always heard of the BMs going to the showers, even if there’s more than one. However, i think since your girls will be attending the first shower & you have no control over who is invited to the second shower, your BMs will completely understand (:

I would definitely think they should be invited to both! They’re your bridesmaids!
