I know I know there鈥檚 a bunch of lists out there but I鈥檓 having trouble figuring out which family members are supposed to be invited - does close mean like aunts and cousins or does close mean family I鈥檓 actually friends with 馃槄

    Honestly I would go with what type of shower you want. If you want to have a big pre-party (and do many people look forward to that after the last two years) or if you would rather a smaller intimate party it's up to you. You may consider the culture of your family too, some have the huge party no matter what. Do what you feel most comfortable with.

    Typically inviting others who are invited to the wedding already! I went through this and was advised it might look like a gift grab... however my mother and MOH are planning it and im not even asking for gifts if no one wants to bring anything.

    I am having a smaller wedding so i may invte some close family to have them apart of something kind of thing but I am not sure yet !

    The way I look at it is, some people may invite people not invited to the wedding if they are say, having a small intimate wedding, but still want to celebrate with certain people.

    But like most things wedding these days - its a lot of personal preference. There are no set rules, so do what your heart tells ya! Who do you want to spend a little extra time with?

    There's been a lot of questions about this lately. That's probably why

    I'm having the people that are closet to me attend my shower. Even though my MIL, MOH and Mom are planning it, they already knew to only invite people that are coming to the wedding. I personally wouldn't invite people that aren't on your guest list. It comes off as tacky and possibly a gift grab in a way

    I would invite the people closest to you and be sure to invite the people who are attending the wedding. Inviting a lot of people who aren't going to the wedding looks like a gift grab to me

    I think it's really up to you but personally, I'd go with the ones you're actually close with. Ultimately though, it's only those actually invited to the wedding. My shower was close family and friends. I know I've been to some big showers that had every woman invited to the wedding - to me that's a bit much, when some of those woman are just the plus ones, and a gift grab. Does all of your family expect to be invited to the shower? Something to ask yourself too! Not that they need to be...
