Sending out the shower invitation first is not good.  It should not precede your beautiful wedding invitations.  People generally expect party invitations after the official announcement.  Just give them 2-3 weeks to check your registry.  You will undoubtedly have some folks who come to the shower who will not make it to the wedding for some reason.

funny you asked this question b/c my Maid/Matron of Honor wanted to send the STD for the shower and i told her we haven’t even sent the invites out yet! she’s just too prepared and way ahead of the game but now she’s going to wait until after we send the invites out.

Hey you’re in the same boat as me! And yes we are sending them out after the formal wedding invitations. Several of my friends did the same thing- I wasn’t offended at all.
