I met this friend’s friend about a year ago, a few days after she got engaged. We’d see each other every so often but it was not until recently that we’ve started to hang out more. So, she’s been planning her wedding for the past year, and it is in about 7 weeks, and I don’t think I’m invited (Idon’t mind I told her not to worry about it, I know these things are expensive!) So today she texted me about dropping off a bridal shower invite. Should I go to the shower even if I’m not invited to the wedding? I know it’s a no-no to invite someone to a shower that’s not invited to the wedding, but what’s the ettiquete for the person invited? Thanks!!

@Imean: That’s completely up to you.
If you like her and have the time to go, you could go and bring something small. If it’s going to be a hassle for you to go or you don’t have the time/money then you can politely decline.
Seeing as the wedding is 7 weeks away, invites may not have gone out yet and you might still be getting one. But she also may be thinking since you said you don’t need an invite that maybe you can’t make it.
As the guest you can do whatever you like. Either go or don’t go, but RSVP within the alloted time and just be cordial about it all.

i just had the opposite happen. friends younger sister is getting married and i receievd the wedding invite.. talked to friend and she said she already threw the shower…
if you are a “friend” of hers then go to the shower. 7 weeks is still a long time before the wedding… maybe invites arent coming til 5 week mark or 4 week mark..

Go if you want to. I mean, there are no rules that say you have to. If you think you’ll have fun, then go for it.
