- Wedding: August 2015
So I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor for a friend and I’m currently trying to help plan her bridal shower with the help from her mom(s). Both her parents and her fiance’s parents are divorced and her dad remarried, so I essentially have 3 moms that I’m dealing with here..I’m getting a lot of involvement from the bride’s real mom and the groom’s real mom (whose house we’re having the shower at), but I’m not really sure how much I should be contacting and including her stepmom. The stepmom has a fairly cordial relationship with the bride’s real mom (they’re certainly not friends, though), and gets along fine with the bride, but they aren’t particularly close at all (although the bride did explicitly tell me that the stepmom would like to be involved in the shower planning to some degree). Right now I’m in the process of getting invite lists from the real moms and the bride. My main question for the moment is should I also be asking the stepmom if there’s anyone she’d like to invite? I’m having trouble finding information on the proper etiquette for this situation, so any advice would be sooo helpful. Thanks in advance!!!
