I've been hoping to put together and plan a shower for my friend who's getting married in the summer. I haven't started planning since it's still too early, however one of my good friends brought this up with me and we decided to agree to disagree on this.
I know on TK just about everyone says you shouldn't invite anyone to a bridal shower who isn't also invited to the wedding. My friend (the bride) recently decided to scale back on the guest list to save money, and my other friend (another BM) suggested we just invite people to the shower who won't be invited to the wedding.
Personally, I never thought this was a good idea. I know what the answer would be on some of the other boards, but I'm curious to hear what you girls honestly think about this.
ETA: I should also add that I talked to my grandma about this later, and she agreed with me friend that inviting people to a shower isn't a big deal. Which is when I wanted to see how other people really feel about it.
