If you're not invited to the Wedding?

I got an invite to a Bridal Shower but know I wasn't invited to the Wedding. I don't have to go or send a gift, do I?

She's a nice friend but we don't hang out, she basically is a friend of the family and my kids bowling Coach.

I was thinking of having the league throw her a Bridal shower a few weeks after her shower that will be more from the kids she and her Fiancé Coach.

I wouldn't feel obligated to go or send a gift if I wasn't invited to the wedding!

This is what I was thinking. I just wonder if they went her FB list instead of her Wedding list

If you are on her Facebook then that very well could be the case. They just went down her Facebook and invited all the women?

If she's still a friend, I'd go with a smaller gift than I'd normally give a closer friend.

It's still nice to celebrate with people.

I don't think I would go or send a gift.  I like the idea of the kids throwing her a shower.

Quite possible that the wedding may be a small, intimate affair and the bridal shower is a way of including everyone else. Or maybe she's just after gifts, idk, lol. 

I think having the league throw her a shower is a better idea. I don't normally go to showers because in the past either we weren't in a position to be able to afford a gift or we were busy with the kids.

I think it's a little bit gauche.  My SIL was mad that my other SIL was doing that.  It looks greedy when you invite for the gift giving party and not the ceremony.

No. I know they have lots of friends and family. I know they are having a big Wedding.
