My fiance and I had an engagement party in August and invited only our immediate family and bridal party, so that everyone could meet each other, considering we have seperate groups of friends. Would it be too much to have a couples bridal shower and invite more family and friends not in the bridal party, but then to also have a bachelor and bachelorette party on different days? The reason we want to do this is to have everyone get to know each other and feel comfortable on our wedding day, but are people going to get annoyed by having to come to 3 different things? Even if I had a bridal shower with women only, some of them would be coming to 3 things anyways.
Thoughts or suggestions?
