My question is about bridal shower etiquette. My fiancé lives about 4.5 hours away and we are only together approximately every other weekend. When we are together, time is extremely limited. That being said, once or twice we have joined his parents at their church (which has about 200 people in attendance). My mother told us the ladies of the church would like to throw us a bridal shower. I am still getting to know his mother and have only met a few of the ladies at the church once or twice and only in passing. He has also had limited interaction with the church ladies, but mostly because when he attends, he is with his father and other men. That being said, he does not feel that he should attend the shower. We have decided to try everything possible to attend every Sunday I am in town, but again, that is limited.
Are there any etiquette tips on this since I am not from there, do not attend the church on even a monthly basis, am still getting to know his mother, or something/anything else? I understand it isn’t most men’s cup-of-tea, but it isn’t mine either when I will be in a room of strangers.
Help! Thanks in advance!
