The brides Aunts are planning a wedding shower for the bride at the aunts home. I am the MOB and was told off this generous offer by my sister who is helping to host. I am not sure if the aunt with home offered or was encouraged by my sister. I was told of this by my sister. I called the aunt to thank her and offer any assistance. It is hard for me to tell her enthusiasm level. She is asking me for a guest list. I was thinking of suggesting it be limited to female relatives of both bride and groom. That would be between 20-25 people and manageable. Only 2 bridesmaids will be present. The other 2 are out of town. One bridesmaid is the daughter of the aunt. Most invitees would be well known to the aunt.
i know my daughter would like her and FH friends to be at her shower. I was thinking of hosting a separate coupes shower at our home. I was thinking a backyard Oktoberfest. We can a tent and bonfire and do a fitting menu. Children would be welcome. It would be in September a month before the wedding and would be relaxing as well as a chance to get to know their friends better. I would like it to be a stand alone good time as well as a shower. Any thoughts or recommendations. Is this appropriate?
