I have a bridal party where 3/4 of the women all live out of town from where I and the wedding will take place. I have had an engagement party so far where several of the out of towners traveled to attend. My concern is my bridal shower. I have already been told that most of the bridal party will not be in attendance. I have had some local close friends offer to throw a couple's shower which is more than generous. How can I combine the two and get everyone on the same page, without having the local friends feel like they now have to take control? I do not have family to host either.
