My showers are still a little ways off, but I have a few questions.
1. FI’s cousin and my aunt are throwing me showers. My aunt’s hosting the traditional style, while FI’s cousin told us we could do either that or a couples shower, whatever we wanted, just let her know. First, let’s just say we do a couples shower… it kind of just sounds like an engagement party! Is that accurate?
2. Next, if we end up doing both a bridal and couples shower, do we only invite people to one? I would feel bad inviting say my girlfriends to my bridal and then having a fun couples shower party and not inviting them to that, but I don’t expect two gifts and don’t want them to feel obligated!
Please help me out here, hive!

Hmm – not sure about the answer to the second question….
But I dont think a couples shower is like an engagement party because at engagement party youre really not supposed to bring gifts or have any mention of gifts at that point. Of course, people dont go by this, but thats how its supposed to be. A couples shower just means that guys can be there and that you probably wont be getting any naughty things at that shower!

I don’t even know! I’ve been wondering the same thing.
Future Sister-In-Law just asked me how many I wanted and I was like, “don’t I just need one and a bach party?” lol. This is all new to me!

Really you should make sure that guests are only invited to one shower. You might make an exception for your mom or someone that wants to go to both.

My moms friends are throwing a bridal shower in Melbourne. This will be women only who live down south who are local. My BM’s are throwing a shower where we currently live that will be co-ed. This will be the group of friends from up here.
