My fiancé and I live in Chicago, but his family is from outside of Detroit, MI (Where he grew up). His aunt and sister want to throw me a bridal shower back in Detroit. Who do I invite to this?? Is it just his side of the family? All of my friends and family live in Illinois, including 2 of my bridesmaids and my MOH and 2 BMs live on the west coast. Is it proper etiquette to invite all of my BMs and is it expected they travel the 6+ hours from Chicago or fly in to attend? Any wives of his friends that I would want at a shower all live in Chicago with us as well so I feel as though it's pointless to invite them as I know they will probably not make the trip.
His cousins are asking me for a guest list and I just want to make sure I'm doing everything right!
