Question about bridal showers. I am from St. Louis but live in the Chicago area. My fiance is from the Chicago area. My sister is hosting a shower for my friends and family in St. Louis.
My mother in law wants to host a shower in the Chicago area for her family only. She was very specific multiple times that she only wanted to host her family and friends, which I thought was slightly rude. I have friends in the Chicago area that I had hoped would be invited to the Chicago shower.
Is it rude for me to ask if I can include my Chicago area friends? I assume that at least my mother and bridesmaids would be included?
Otherwise I will have to have a third shower for my friends only.
