Bridal Shower for a Destination Wedding
Nov 27th, 2006, 12:07pm
 
my best friend is planning a destination wedding but unfortunately the majority of her friends will not be able to attend. She and her fiance are planning a reception at home once they return from the trip.
Is it appropriate to host a bridal shower for her and invite the friends who are not attending the wedding?

I personally dont see anything wrong with it. I would be really sad if i was not invited to the party because of the wedding. Unfortunatly many people are offended. They are more put off if they were not invited or even more put off if they did not know that they would not be invited. I also had a destination wedding with close friends and family only. I had a large shower and all my guest new it was a destination wedding. If your guest understand before hand then there is less unhappiness.
