Who To Invite To Daughter-In-Law's Baby Shower
I am hosting a party for my daughter-in-law that will mostly be our side of the family. My daughter-in-law lives in another state as does her sister, 2 brother's (both married) and her mother. Is it proper etiquette to invite her family to my shower? Do I invite her grandparents on that side also?
Thanks for your help!
Thank you for your etiquette question. I am not sure if the baby shower is going to be held in your state or hers? Is she having another baby shower that is involving her family?
I would ask your daughter in law. There is no problem inviting her family to your family baby shower if there are no other family baby showers going on. She could also give the best advice on whether she feels they would like an invitation or not.
If your baby shower is in another state, her family might have problems traveling to the party. If there are no other baby showers being held for her and it is going to be held in your state, go ahead and send invites to her family.
That way they feel like they are included in the celebration if they would like to attend. If both families get along well and she feels comfortable with it, there is nothing wrong in including her family members in the celebration. If it is too far for them to travel, it might spark the idea for someone on her side to throw her a shower.
If she is already receiving a baby shower where she lives and the family is part of the celebration, you might want to send invitations to her parents as a courtesy. Certainly not required, but it is a nice gesture.
I hope that helps. Good Luck planning the baby shower.
