bridal shower--only for wedding invitees?
My 30 yr old niece is getting married for the first time and I want to give her a bridal shower. She and her fiance' have decided to have a small wedding...Their immediate families, including aunts, uncles, and cousins. This, however, doesn't include my (her mom's) aunts and cousins, who are the people I usually include in a family shower. Would it be wrong to expect them to participate in a shower if they aren't invited to the wedding? Or is this a way to involve them/include them in celebrating this wonderful occasion since they won't be able to share in the actual day?
