Amy talks bridal shower guest list etiquette in this recent interview with BRIDES.

The article says answers the question “Who to invite to the Bridal Shower”:

The short answer is, you should not invite anyone to your shower who will not be invited to the wedding. Your shower is an intimate gathering of some of the closest women (and men if you choose) in your life, and if anyone makes the cut for your shower, they should also be close enough to you to get a wedding invite.

“You’re basically telling your guests that you like them enough to have them celebrate you (and buy you gifts) but not enough to include them on one of the most important days of your life,” says Amy Nichols, owner of Amy Nichols Special Events. “Anyone who is invited or included in the bridal shower should be invited to the wedding.”

A few of the wedding industry’s best, including our very own Amy, share the biggest save-the-date mistakes couples often make.

Amy says: “Be sure that you have a really great handle on your budget before sending your save-the-dates. By understanding what you can spend as well as how many guests you can accommodate, you will avoid a potential budget issue if you need to cut corners. You don’t want to send an over-the-top save-the-date and set one expectation for the type of wedding you’re having, only to follow up with less than impressive invites.”
