- Wedding: September 2012
I live about 2 hours away from my home town, where my wedding is being held in 2 months. I have lived in the current city for about 6 1/2 years. Before I moved here I had several wonderful friends that I love dearly. Over time we have grown apart, some have had kids, gotten married, yada yada yada.
1 of my Bridesmaid or Best Man lives in the hometown, 2 live here. Bridesmaid or Best Man back home wanted to host a shower for me down there but said she was really having a hard time right now and just couldnt afford it. Of course I told her not to worry about it it was no big deal.
So then, my mom decided she really really wanted me to have a shower in my hometown because she wanted to attend it, with my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law. She said that she would give Bridesmaid or Best Man a budget to work with and the would plan it together and mom would foot the bill.
So my question is do you think my girlfriends from back home that I have not been that close with hte past few years would want to come to a shower there or would it seem like I was being gift grabby? Which I am not.
Most of us see each other once a year or keep in touch via facebook but thats really it. All of the girls mentioned have been invited to the wedding and have RSVP’ed as coming.
Should I have a shower there or not? What do you think Bee’s?
