- Wedding: November 2013
My sister is trying to get things together for my bridal shower and has asked for addresses of who I want invited. I’ve run into 2 issues with trying to figure out who to invite.
#1– I don’t have many close friends so I’ve got that list down. However, there are some girls that work with my fiancé that I’ve become friends with. We aren’t close friends so I don’t know if they will be offended if they aren’t invited. I’m a very socially awkward person. I feel like it might be seen as weird if I invite them because we aren’t close and I’ve never done anything with any of them without my fiancé. And since I don’t have a lot of friends (close or not-so-close) it’s not going to be some big thing that everyone and their mother is invited to. I really can’t tell if I’m being ridiculous for thinking it would be seen as weird if I invited some people I’m not that close with to something that is obviously a smaller, more intimate gathering. Thoughts?
#2– All of my fiancé’s family lives pretty far away. I know they aren’t going to buy a plane ticket to come to my bridal shower a couple months before the wedding. But I feel that it’s possible that his mom might be offended if she doesn’t get invited. I don’t really know for sure; I’ve never met the woman, never even spoken to her (unless you count a few comments on facebook). I was thinking better just invite her to be on the safe side. But then I can see other family members getting offended if she is invited and they aren’t. Where does the inviting-so-as-not-to-offend end? Help!!
