(Closed) Bridal shower – invite people that I know won't be able to come?

Just make sure noone is insulted they weren’t invited.  I think it’s better to give them the option (even if you can predict how they will RSVP) and let them tell you they can’t make it than to let someone be disappointed to learn they weren’t invited.

I had the same issue as I have family in New Husband (I live in CA). In the end, we invited them because we didn’t want them to feel left out. But, sent an email shortly after explaining that so they understood we didn’t expect them to come. I think your mom and sister would be sad if they didn’t get an invite even if they can’t make it.

I invited people that I knew wouldn’t come, only because I knew they’d complain later that they didn’t get an invite. (ridiculous, I know!) But also because they’ll know wher we’re registered if they want to send gifts!!
