Limiting Your Guest List at a Bridal Shower: Good Idea or Faux-Pas?

A mother-in-law plans a bridal shower — but excludes the bride’s family. What’s a bride to do?

(page 1 of 2)

Sometimes it’s difficult to remember that a wedding is about adding family, and it’s tough to behave in the way that cements bonds rather than risks rifts. As the bride-to-be, it’s your job to remember this concept. Read on...

Dear Wedding Guru: “My future mother-in-law just told me that she’s throwing me a shower. However... she’s excluding my entire bridal party and most of my family members. I’m devastated that my aunts and bridal attendants will not be invited, and I don’t know what to do. Should I tell her that I rather she didn’t throw a shower with those parameters? I hate to start our relationship on a bad foot. Please help.”
