So my sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor and will be planning my bridal shower and bachelorette party.
I made a list of who to invite to the bridal shower, which is basically every female guest. I am having a TERRIBLE time with deciding who to invite to the bachelorette party however… :/
I am always worried about hurting peoples feelings (by not including them) and I’m also worried about inviting people who I otherwise wouldn’t (therefore making them feel like they HAVE to come, when they otherwise probably wouldn’t).
I know I’m a little crazy but this is whats making it super hard for me, lol.
I am obviously inviting all bridesmaids and close girlfriends – should I invite my future sister in-laws? My fiance has 3 brother and they are all married. I love all my FSIL’s but I’m not so close that I would normally “go out” with them. One of my future SIL’s is close in age to me, so I am inclined to invite her. However, while she is super sweet, I know she’d probably rather not come but would be too polite to say no. So… not sure what to do there? Also, if I invite her, do I invite the other two FSILS? One lives out of state so I know she wouldn’t come, and the other is local, but is much older (in her 40’s) than myself or any of my friends. I wouldn’t want to exclude her of course but again, wouldn’t want her to feel like its something she MUST do because she’s invited – which again, I feel like she may feel that way…
I feel like I’m rambling so if this makes any sense to anyone – please give me some advice! Lol. I have no idea what I’m doing. I have been to like 2 weddings in my entire life so I’m just not super sure how all of this is supposed to work. :/
