Hey! Was making a list for my bridal shower of individuals I want to invite, however I don’t know if you should invite people who you aren’t inviting to the wedding? confused to who is suppose to come to your bridal shower and who’s not?! Lol
I think they need to be invited in some form (in person or by zoom or another platform to watch). I was invited to one a couple years ago and I wasn’t invited to the wedding. It was pre pandemic. I thought it was rude and a ton of people were talking about it at the party. I wasn’t lol for the record I sucked it up and was a good friend about it. but it definitely sets the expectation that your invited to the wedding
I agree with the others. In non-pandemic times, I think it's rude to invite people to the shower and not the wedding. I feel that if you don't, the message is that you're inviting a gift from this person but they aren't important enough to make the cut for the actual wedding. I would feel a bit taken advantage of unless there was a very good reason I wasn't invited to the wedding (like the pandemic for example).
Yeah, if it was a covid situation that's one thing but with your wedding in 2023 (and likely this whole pandemic behind us *crosses fingers*), it would be incredibly inappropriate to invite some people to an event with an expectation of gifts but not to the actual celebration itself.
Personally I believe whoever you are inviting to your bridal shower should be invited to your wedding! I think people also expect to be invited to your wedding if you are inviting them to your shower. They are going to your shower to bring you gifts and support you and your future with your partner and not inviting them to the wedding may not come off right to your guests! Hope this helps
