So I'm having a very small wedding in March (30 people, assuming everyone invited comes). It will be 22 family members and then a few of my and FH's closest friends.
I've already decided to not have a shower, because we live together and own a house already and don't need more stuff, but also because etiquette everywhere says I can't invite anyone who isn't invited to the wedding, and that would be literally everyone. I don't want to make anyone feel left out or that I'm being a gift-grabbing bridezilla.
I'm now debating what to do about the bachelorette party. A friend wants to throw one for me, we don't have a wedding party but she's a close friend who is attending the wedding, and we're debating whether we can invite a lot of my other friends who aren't coming to the wedding.
Is that super rude? Would you be mad if a friend was having an essentially family-only wedding but you were invited to a bachelorette party to celebrate with the bride instead?
Also keep in mind this won't be some night out on the town with a limo and a lot of things for people to chip in for me. I'm going to be five months pregnant at the time of the wedding, so it would be something like dinner and a craft night.
Please help! Not sure what to do!
