I'm in the process of creating my "list" of who will be invited to the wedding and shower. I was wondering what the etiquette is for inviting people to the bridal shower. For a typical wedding in my family, we invite EVERYONE, my parents cousins and aunts, etc., and then these people would obviously be invited to the wedding.
Now for a destination wedding, we only plan on inviting close relatives, so does that mean these are the only ones I should invite to the bridal shower as well? When we come back we still plan on having a "reception" party, a couple months after the wedding where we will invite anyone and everyone (distant relatives and all).
Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated.
