Pre-wedding Parties

Bridal Shower - Distination Wedding - Who to Invite

I'm having a destination wedding, but it will be small with close friends and family.  Next  summer we'll be having a big party with everyone who could not make it or wasn't invited to the actual wedding.
For the bridal shower is it OK to invite those who I don't invite to the wedding but will be inviting to the summer party?

    The only people that should be at the shower are those that will be invited to your real wedding - not the party the following summer.

    Nope. you can't.  As banana said only those invited to the wedding get shower invites. 

    One of the things you forfeit when you make the decision to have a DW is pre-wedding parties, like showers.

    Ditto pp's if you're having a destination wedding, you kind of let go of some of the things that come along wtih planning a wedding. You may not have as large of a bridal party, bridal shower, bachelorette party, or any of that at all. Now if these people are being invited to the actual wedding and decline due to traveling, they can still be invited to the shower. One of my friends just attended a bridal shower yesterday for someone who's having a destination wedding. She was invited to the wedding, but she and her FI can't afford to travel down to Key West since they're planning and saving for their own wedding the following month, but she was excited to still go to the bridal shower.
