  • They may hear about the shower and be offended that they weren't invited. The worst that can happen is that they don't come. So, yes, I'd invite them.

  • Sounds tacky, me personally if that happened to me I would look at the person and ask why am I not good enough to talk to for a year but good enough to ut on a list for a baby shower so you can have more gifts.
    I was invited to a shower for a friend who never talked to me. I told her no and didn't go. Obviously she didn't care enough for the friendship why should I bring a gift?

  • Is there a reason you havent talked to this person in a year?.. Does this friend even know you are having/had a baby?... personally - No.. I have a few friends that i havent talked to in a really long time also, and i would not invite them to something like this, a baby shower is about you and your baby! and if they are not that close to you then i would not want them there.. I would just send them a birth announcment, then if they want to send you a gift its there choice..

  • Very tacky to ask someone you haven't spoken with in a year to buy you stuff.

  • No, I don't really look at it was oh come and buy me stuff but as oh come and celebrate a new life with me. I have been invited to a couple of baby showers for girls that I rarely talk to. I don't think that there's anything wrong with it.

  • I think that's fine, people are busy now a days. I actually thinks that's a good time to catch up and also let them know that you still have them in mind. I don't see it like you are asking for a gift, but come on baby clothing are not that expensive. I think it would be nice to invite them at least.
