I'm planning a very small wedding, really just parents, siblings, and grandparents, in my mom's backyard. We're keeping the whole thing very low-key, and we aren't planning on having any of the usual pre-wedding festivities, however my mom and my gran are pretty set on throwing a bridal shower since it's a big there where they're from apparently (Scotland), and I'm more than okay with that.
Where are opinions differ is on the guest list. They think it's not weird at all to invite people to the shower who aren't going to be at the wedding. I can see where they're coming from, it's another opportunity to celebrate and all that, and really I don't think most of my family would be bothered by being invited to the shower and not the wedding, but I still think it's really weird.
What do you guys think? Would it be weird to invite people to the shower who won't be invited to the wedding?
Thanks in advance!
