My wedding is going to be in California (I live inTexas). I am inviting my friends from Texas even though I know the majority cannot make it out to the wedding. Is it rude to have a bridal shower in Texas knowing many cannot make it out?
Please help, I am at crossroads with this.

So long as someone else is throwing it for you (you can’t throw your own shower) and all the people invited to the shower are invited to the wedding, I think you’re fine. If they can’t make it after they’ve been invited that’s their issue.

@JenGirl: +1 The bride should not plan her own bridal shower. Now, if your TX friends just want to have a get-together (and “shower” you with gifts) for you before you leave for CA, that’s fine.

Although you are not planning your shower, the bride does have input of the guest list. I think only local people should be invited.
Inviting people from TX to the wedding in CA is OK, inviting them to the shower is not OK.

Reason why I ask is because one of my bridesmaids (the only one in TX) asked me about having one and I had not thought of it before.
I do plan on inviting people from TX to the wedding, invite and all. I just know that many of them can’t make it out.

@JenGirl: +1, if they can’t attend I would assume they’d still want to do something to celebrate with you, OP!
