So a friend of mine has decided that she only wants her parents, siblings, and grandparents at her wedding due to money and timing issues. (I didn't ask for details.)
She asked me if it was rude for her Mom and sister to host a bridal shower for her since there are only going to be 20 people invited to the wedding.
At first, I wanted to tell her YES point blank because for large weddings if they are not invited to the wedding, then you don't invite them to the bridal shower! But I wasn't 100% sure if that etiquette remained true for all wedding types.
Should I go ahead and tell her yes it's rude, or no it's okay only because the wedding is so small?
