Whom to Invite: You want to be absolutely sure that you're not inviting anyone to the shower who isn't invited to the wedding, and the only way to know that is to get the guest list. Ask the bride for a copy, or, if the shower is a surprise, ask her mother or fiancé. Remember to invite close female relatives of both the bride and groom, as well as all the women in the wedding party and the bride's close friends. While bridal showers guests are traditionally all women, today many are coed affairs that celebrate both the bride and groom, known as "Jack and Jill" showers. Before making a decision about whether to include men at the show, discuss the question with the groom_to_be to be sure that he is comfortable attending a shower and to ask for an appropriate male guest list if the answer is "yes."
I bought packs of balloons for Bree's shower to place around the house but ran out of time. Someone who showed up early was put in charge of putting balloons outside. She got very creative with it! I thought she did a great job.
