I know that the split here is about 50/50 - but I think we need to take into consideration our guests, and thier perception of us, especially post wedding.

At the risk of going off topic, I noticed that a few DWB's have this mentality with a DW. Please tell me what wedding packages you are being offered because I have yet to be offered a package that didn't charge you up the wazoo per person. Although DW's tend to be naturally smaller, I do not want to run the risk of inviting 200 people to have 150 show up when really I could only afford 30.
As for the topic at hand, I also get the twinge that this is a bit of a gift grab -- not saying that you meant it that way, but I can see it coming off that way. Especially because of the relative locations of your guests to the DW, shower, and AHR. However, you know your guests and how they may perceive things. Go with your gut.

I have been invited to showers and not to the wedding, and I thought they were just trying to get more gifts...not saying you are though. It is tough because I am sure you want to include everyone but it gets costly. Good luck...
