So, my aunt has been kind enough to host a co-ed bridal shower for us. She has been continuously consulting me on some of her party planning and all I have been saying to her as been along the lines that, "whatever you decide to do, I am sure will be wonderful." Recently she asked me if I have ordered our wedding invitations and whether or not I had a guest book yet. I replied that I have not ordered them yet and will by the end of the week. She then suggested that I also purchase the bridal shower invitations as well.
I was set back a little bit by the request as I figure brides are not suppose to get involved in any bridal shower planning business so I just told her I was driving and I would get back to her soon.
I haven't called her back yet because I was not sure how to explain that I should not be designing or purchasing the invitations for the bridal shower. I don't want to come off ungrateful or a penny pincher but it just seems wrong to me.
On another etiquette type question, our best man wants to host a bachelor to honor both my fiance and his best friend who was not provided a bachelor party. The best man states that he feels guilty for not hosting a bachelor party for his best friend as he was also the best man for him as well. I feel that his best friend who has been married for a year now should not be encroaching on another bachelor party for someone else. After all, he technically is not a bachelor anymore. This best friend is also not invited to the wedding either. To me it feels rude for the best man to host a dual bachelor party, especially if the other person has been married for a year already. Or maybe I am just making a big deal out of nothing.
Any advice would be appreciated.
