What is the etiquette in regards to who to invite to a bridal shower? My bridesmaids are throwing me one (which will be at my sister’s house) and I was under the impression that I should invite all women invited to the wedding. The only thing is, all of my fiance’s friends and family are from out of state so I wasn’t sure if I should invite them or not. Many of them live halfway across the country and I wouldn’t expect them to come, but his sisters and some friends live just 3 hours away.

I think it’s too much to expect people to travel to a bridal shower. I also think that not everyone invited to the wedding needs to be invited to the shower. For me, a shower is a much more intimate occasion with only your closest friends and relatives.
For me, that will be FIs mom, sister and aunts; my mom,sister, aunts and female cousins who live within driving distance; a few ladies from my church and my side of the bridal party. Even though our wedding guest list is about 200 – the shower guest list will be about 30.

I invited only women that were invited to the wedding (obviously!) but most of the people that came are ones that live in town and one aunt (and uncle) that lived out of state that were really involved.
