Bridal Shower Etiquette

Recommended Posts

Is it ok to have a bridal shower if you are having a DW? More so, do you only invite the people you invited to the DW to the shower? Or do I have to have a AHR to be able to have a bridal shower and invite other people who weren't invited to the DW? Any thoughts on this would be great.

Yes, it is totally ok to have a shower if you are having a DW. Gosh, I am having two.

 

You only invite the people you are planning on inviting or have invited to the shower.

 

A shower should not be given by you, but by a bridal party member.

I'm not sure on the proper etiquette on this. but i would think that you can still have a shower even if you're having a dw, b/c you are still getting married and starting a life together, kwim??

 

and if you want a party after you are home, have an ahr. i see nothing wrong with it ;o)

In the etiquette section of more than one DW book I've read it says it's OK to have a shower and to register.

 

I would personally only want people invited who were invited to the wedding, but I'm also inviting a TON of people to the wedding, so that might be different. If you're having a reception after the fact and everyone knows you're having a reception, then I don't think it'd be too big a deal to invite people who aren't invited to the wedding.

 

Also, what does "AHR" stand for? I can pretty much figure out all the other acronyms, but this one I'm having trouble with!

i had a shower and told my mil to ONLY invite ppl invited to the wedding. i (personally) thought it was a tacky way of asking for gifts if i invited ppl to the shower w/o a wedding invitation.

I think it's okay. Furthermore, I noticed you are from Bradenton and you look familiar. I use to live in Bradenton. What high school did you go to?

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
