- Wedding: June 2013
my Maid/Matron of Honor has asked me for a list of shower guests so she can start her planning and i am at a bit of a loss! the shower is Boston and i wont invite folks from west coast or overseas. after that, it gets dicey (everyone else is northeastern region).
Fiance has a large group of childhood friends. there are 8 females in this group invited to the wedding.
-3 of them i like a lot, we talk on our own (mostly via facebook)
-3 are wives of friends who he knows better than i do (2 are wives of groomsmen)
-2 are girls i have talked to a bit but we havent connected and i doubt we will (one is the sister of a girl i do really like)
these people are the most ridiculously close group of friends youve ever met. i dont want to snub anyone but is it bad to invite only some people of a close knit group of friends? it seems strange to invite people i barely talk to.
are wives of groomsmen automatic invites if Fiance is also friends with them?
we are having mixed gender bridal parties. he has 2 girls on his side, his sister who would of course be invited anyway, and a female friend i dont know super well. she should be invited too, right?
i have a male bridesmaid who i want at my shower. i also have a gay couple who i would love to have there because they are very close to me. would it be ok to have them there since there will be another man there? or would they find it insulting to be invited to a “women’s” event?
ETA: i dont think they would, i am more just worried otheres would perceive it as that?
