I didn’t want to get involved with any type of Bridal Shower planning, but I have been asked by my Jr Bridesmaid’s mother to provide the guest list and highlight those who I would like invited to a bridal shower in the event that a bridal shower would be thrown.
Fairly cut and dry…but I ran into one hypothetical invite issue. The one Groomsmen is Fiance’s cousin. This GM’s mom and dad are on the guest list, as are his wife and his sister’s family (fiance’s cousin). I know Groomsmen and his wife, we know GM’s parents very well, but I’ve never met GM’s sister and her family. If GM’s wife and GM’s mom are on the bridal shower list (which they should be because we’re close), do I indicate that if there is a bridal shower, the sister should be invited too, even though we’ve never met???
Sorry if that’s confusing!! Thanks.

Could you feel it out with GM’s parents? When I went through for the list, I left off people I didn’t know well. There were some family & family friends who probably expected an invite and didn’t get one, but it was a combination of space and also that I felt wierd inviting people who don’t know me to a gift-giving event.

I may let fiance approach it with his aunt — i want to stay as far out of the loop with any bridal shower as possible. I just went through a weekend of guilt with my BMs buying their dresses, I hate discussing gift-giving events.

Your shower should be a more intimate event- I think it’s fine not to include the women you don’t know

@kimberlyr22: I can totally empathize. But I just tried to remember that I was/will be happy to do those kinds of things for my other girlfriends, too.
