Our Take: If you're one of those people who traditionally takes over the bridal shower duties, assess your boundaries and capabilities. What are your financial (and time and effort) limits? Make your line in the sand and stick to it. Communicate what you can and can't accomplish__to the couple, family, other party members, or anyone else who might fall into unreasonable and over_demanding zones. Enlist help when you need it, whether it's making favors, hunting down RSVPs or doing food prep. And yes, it's probably still best not to invite people that aren't invited to the wedding, because ouch.
Examples of filler decor : Strategic balloon bouquets _ (we're talking the cheap ũ or less helium balloons from Walmart, not the fancy mylar ones) lining the food table, outside your front door so people know where the party is, bouquets in the corners of rooms, etc. (Just google "balloon bouquets" for ideas)
