everything seems fine to me? just call her back 🙂 and if she was offended let her know you didn’t mean too… maybe they already had some sort of secret party planned?

@keepsmiling19:  It sounds like you’re being very careful to take into consideration their point of view, costs, etc. The only thing I would suggest is that you no longer handle being the point person for your own showers. If people call with further questions or what have you, defer to your point person per shower. Tell them you don’t know, but you will have so-and-so get back to them and have them follow-up immediately. Have someone else who is hosting be appointed to informing everyone of these details. It will take you out of the middle where potential feelings can get hurt, and take the pressure off of you and where it should be — on the person hosting. 😉 This way, if anything is questionable or of concern, your friends can contact the hostess directly and it will be more…business-like? Less prone to ruffling feathers of the friendships? Good luck!

I live 6 hours from family and it’s wonderful and much appreciated to get advance notice of dates and times so I can make plans. Even if I have to travel, I still like being invited.  Advance notice is great so your Out of Town guests can more easily plan to attend. Very thoughtful of you!

I think you did fine! only two of my BM’s were local – and I had emailed them and flat out said I didn’t expect that they could make it, and to not worry about it. I think you did everything right!
