I'm having a very small ceremony on February 5th. A few weeks later though, we're having a big party to celebrate with all of the people we couldn't afford to invite to the wedding (parents friends, friends outside of the bridal party, extended family). My maid of honor wants to throw me a wedding shower the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Is it appropriate to have a wedding shower? Is it ok for her to invite people who are just invited to the big celebration and not the actual wedding itself since there will only be 4 people at the wedding who are not participating? She thinks just before Thanksgiving would be a good time to do it because we only have a couple weekends before the wedding to do a bunch of stuff after the holidays. Let me know what you think!
