Baby shower attendance

by Laurie
(Edmonton Ab )

I'm hosting a baby shower for my strop daughter. When I asked her for a list of names to invite, I noticed that several people on the list had already attended another baby shower that her mother had hosted 3 weeks prior. Is it proper to invite guests that have already attended a shower? My step daughter says rhat she doesn't expect gifts from these friends. It makes me uncomfortable as the shower invitation is theamed and I'm going to a lot of expense and effort to host this shower. What is the proper thing and or response to do!

Hello Laurie,

This is indeed an interesting question. Inviting the same guests to more than one shower is not usually an accepted practice. If these women are your step daughter's close friends who go where she goes, she may just want them at the shower without gifts. But that isn't good practical etiquette, especially with a themed shower. Each guest is another expense and it really isn't very polite to duplicate guest lists in this situation. Please explain this to her in any way you can. If that isn't comfortable, then you will have these extras at your shower.

Good luck!
