What is the etiquette when sending invitations to a shower? Do I send the invitation to the guest of honor, as well?
The short answer is yes.
Whether it be a bridal shower, a baby shower, or really any other event you are hosting to honor someone (dissertation defense party?) you should send an invitation to the guest of honor also. If your friend is anything like the Muses, she’s a modern girl that has 110 things to remember each day...sending her an invite is a thoughtful way to give her all the details about the event so she won’t need to text you every 2 weeks saying “what day is the luncheon again? At 2 or 3?” Also, if the event is in honor of a major life event an invitation will be a great keep sake.
