So, I have been married before. I have had a wedding and a wedding shower, the marriage didn't last long, not getting into detail but obviously something happened that led to it being over very quickly(divorced within a year). I have recently gotten engaged to a man I wish I waited for, but everything happens for a reason!
Anyways, to the point, we will be getting married in a Church, having a reception, and doing the registering thing. What is the etiquette? This time around my guest list is short, more immediate family and friends, no one really "extended" like last time. We are going to have a shower, he has a big family who wants it for us. So I didn't know if it should just be his side that gets invited to the shower, and people from my side that weren't at my first? Do I re-invite people again and make it clear NOT to bring a gift, that I just require the presence of their company? I never thought I'd be the one in this position but I am... so ANY advice would help!
