My mom’s friend commented that it was not proper for her to get our wedding invitation before the shower invitation. First of all, I thought it was a bit rude to even comment but, whatever. Second, although I think I heard this before but in my mind, I think I’d want to know I was invited to the wedding before I went to the shower.
What does everyone else think?

I have never heard of that before! I would want to be invited to the wedding before the shower also so I don’t really understand her reasoning.

That seems silly – I never would have even thought about it! If I had to pick an order, I actually think it makes more sense to get the wedding invitation first!

My wedding invites came a couple days, maybe a week before the shower invites were received in the mail. I think it has a lot to do with when your shower is, in relation to the wedding. I never thought it would be weird to get one before the other. And it is kind of not her place to comment, so tell her to shush up!

That’s kind of surprising actually. She has her etiquette backwards. Most people if they are going to get offended would be offended that they got he SHOWER invitation first. Though I do think that’s ridiculous as well, it at least makes a little more sense (the fact that they may not know if they are actually invited to the wedding, but are invited to a gift giving party). Don’t worry about it, like I said from an etiquette standpoint, she has it backwards. You were being way more etiquette conscious than most in sending your wedding invitations out prior to the shower invites.

We’re doing the wedding invites, followed a few days later by the next morning brunch invites and rehearsal dinner invites, followed about a week later by the shower invites. Ahhh! So many invitations!
