- Wedding: October 2013
My bridal shower is coming up in a few months and I’m a little unsure of what I should do about four invites. My MOH is needing the list. First of all, they are all four women I work closely with in an office. I hadn’t planned on inviting them in the first place because although we’re close I didn’t want them to think they had to come, spend a weekend afternoon, and bring a gift. Believe me, these are NOT women who enjoy that kind of thing, especially because they all live on the other side of town from where the shower will be held. (They are all invited to the wedding, though) However, one of them came in the other day at work and handed me a book we had talked about previously. She said “I got this for you and thought I’d go ahead and give it to you in case I’m not invited to a shower.” So…do I take that as I should invite her? What about now that she’s given me something? I don’t want her to feel obligated to buy me anything, and certainly wasn’t expecting anything in the first place. And, if I invite her I’ll have to invite all of them. I can see two of them being ok, but the other two are absolutely not the type to ever go to a shower, they hate those types of things. I hope I don’t sound rude, but I could use some advice.
