I tend to be with your fiances mom. If I was close enough to want to attend the shower, I would expect to be invited to the small ceremony, especially if its local as opposed to a destination.

Showers are things that not everyone love doing, but love supporting the bride. Not being invited to the ceremony, but to the shower does seem wrong to me.

@Gracie815:  Typically you are only to invite those who will be attending the wedding.  What you can do is suggest that no one is obligated to bring presents so they don’t feel as if you’re in it for the gifts/money.  That way you can enjoy your shower peacefully, play games, and have fun.

@Rouquine:  Maybe call it a Bridal No-Shower?

@ThreeMeers:  There’s a bee that had a tea party and didn’t want any gifts.  I think that was such a cute idea.  You can still play games.  I think she mentioned that a few gifts were bought, but it’s because people wanted to bring something.

@Gracie815:  If you were to do something to a tea party, then I would just call it just that.  I wouldn’t use the word shower.  Especially if there’s people included that won’t be invited to the wedding itself.  =)
