- Wedding: June 2010
A woman from my church growing up (my confirmation sponsor) offered to throw me a shower the Sunday before the wedding. She said she could accommodate 12 people, and I put together a guest list of the 12 closest women in my life who are local to my hometown.
My Future Mother-In-Law just got the invite, and was upset that she didn’t get to give input into the guest list. She has asked that I include some of her close woman friends (some of whom I know, some who I don’t), as well as my FBIL’s girlfriend (who I have only met once, and who only recently decided to come out with Brother-In-Law a full week before the wedding.)
Was I wrong to not consult Future Mother-In-Law about who to invite? I guess I thought that the bridal shower was a party for me, and that I should invite women that I know and who know me. Especially with the limited guest list, I thought it was appropriate to use my discretion on who to invite. (I did consult my mom, because much of the guest list is comprised of middle-aged women who are close family friends, and it was hard to keep it limited to 12.)
