    My aunt is giving me a shower that is for the ladies in my and my FI's family and some family friends....and I also thought about inviting my bridesmaids.

    We have some friends that are giving us a "stock the bar" party / pool party. We are inviting all of our friends to that - it's a couples thing one evening this summer.

    My question is, should I expect my bridesmaids to attend the "family" shower and the "stock the bar" party?

    I just think the family shower will be so boring with just the ladies in my and my FI's family. Is that bad of me??

      i'd invite them, but maybe tell them you'd understand if they didn't come.

        I agree. Do invite them but let them know that you'd understand if they couldn't make it.

          I'll third those comments - just let them know that they are not obligated to join, and I would even explain why... the same way you did to us!!

          I would ask them to come. They don't need to buy you a second gift, but to be there for support is always nice! I know I need support when surrounded by my crazy family!

              I was gonna say the same thing - support! You need it, believe me! If it weren't for all of my great friends, I seriously may have marched out of my own shower because my grandma was being a total PITA...well, I think the margaritas helped too - but the support was a MUST!
