so I’m having some friends from out of town and close friends in the area come for a bachelorette party..the friday of a weekend. That sunday, my aunt is throwing me a wedding shower. Does everyone who is invited to the shower ( at least in my age range) have to be invited to the bachelorette party? Some of them are not as close to me as others.

Are the shower guests traveling to your area for the whole weekend? If so, it would be nice to invite them. If not, I don’t see why you’d have to.

I think that the bachelorette party is more for close friends. The only real etiquette about showers is that all people who are invited to a shower should be invited to the wedding.

Sounds like they are hosted by two different groups (bach – BMs; shower – aunt), so I don’t see why the guest lists have to be the same. Go have fun with your closest buds on Fri night!
But if you’re not inviting everyone in your age range to the Bach party, do your best to not mention the party at the shower. Not to keep it a secret, but rather as good manners – y’know, talking about something that others present aren’t/weren’t invited to.
