Wedding etiquette question.My friends daughter is getting married and I am not invited to the wedding or the reception. But, I am invited to bridal shower. Is this typical etiquette? It seems odd to me. What do you think?
*I felt sorry for my husband before I met him. Take a number.*
I agree with everyone else, it is extremely rude & gift-grabby. I would definitely decline if I were you.
The ladies at my church always throw wedding showers for anyone getting married and invite all the ladies in the church. I've been to several when I wasn't invited to the wedding and it didn't bother me because that's just the way it's always done. When it comes to my shower though, I will feel extremely uncomfortable having people there that aren't invited to the wedding. It's already awkward when people at church ask me when the wedding is and I know they aren't going to be invited...
I agree with the others. It sounds like a tacky "I want a gift but you're not worth the catering cost" move to me too. It's fine to decline. And don't send a gift. I have tons of family and they always send out the bridal shower invite WITH the wedding invite because no one wants to pay stamps twice when they could just send it all at once. So I doubt they "forgot" your invite.Actually, dont' even decline. Don't accept or anything. Seriously, that's so distasteful I wouldn't even dignify it with a response.
