What is the proper bridal shower etiquette for people who declined for the wedding...

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies, just wondering for the guests that have declined no they will not attend the our destination wedding, should we still extend an invite to them for our bridal shower? I don't know if that is proper or not proper. Please advise! Thanks!

I am inviting everyone even if they can't make the wedding and of course at the shower will remind them of our party after we return home. I was up in the air about the shower invites until my wise friend pointed out that because we are having a destination wedding teh shwoer is another way to make those who can not make the trip still feeel they were included.

I agree. A friend of mine also told me the same thing earlier. Esp since we are not having an AHR the shower will be a way for them to definitely be included. Thanks for your reply ladies!

Yes, you can definitely do that.  Just FYI, many people will WANT to get you gifts, especially those who cannot attend the DW.  I asked for no gifts at the bridal shower but everyone still brought gifts and those who were out of town shipped them to my house.  But I did stress the point that since people are spending $$ traveling to our wedding, gifts are not necessary.  But after I mentioned it, people kept asking so I ended up setting up a small registry (probably 40 items or so).
