Bridal shower invites

Help!! Ok ladies here's the issue we aren't inviting my parents extending family to the wedding because it will simply be to big! For the bride shower my mom and I are wondering if it's right to invite family who isn't invited to the wedding?

    I ditto the others. My mom suggested having a get together with family who are not coming to my wedding when I take my vehicle down to my dad this coming weekend but I said no because I do have family from there coming up to the wedding and I don't want them to feel like they could have just gone to a shower an hour away rather than drive 9 hours to my city.

    I agree with everything Kacy said. Usually you are showered with gifts at your bridal shower and so if you are only inviting family/friends to that pre-wedding celebration and not the wedding, they might feel like you are using them for gifts only and that you don't care enough to invite them to the wedding to celebrate with you. I am having 2 showers and I am only having people at them that are also invited to the wedding because I don't want anyone to be offended. I am having a jack and jill and for that we are inviting everyone regardless if they are invited to the wedding or not but there will be games, prizes, food, dancing etc. so it is a bit of a different scenario.

    Typically the people who are invited to the extra wedding celebrations such as the engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette/bachelor etc are also invited to the wedding, so if you invite your family they will likely expect an invitation to the wedding. They might feel hurt or offended, as usually the bridal shower is an occasion to "shower" the bride-to-be with gifts, so they may feel that they were invited for their "presents". Ultimately you know them though.. I've seen some people talk about doing an intimate ceremony and then multiple wedding receptions, some more low-key with family (like backyard get-together), then the big one with friends is the big party wedding reception with their friends because of large guest lists and limited budget. Hope this helps!!
