Should i postpone my bridal shower too?

Help, please! So my fiancé and I made the decision to postpone our wedding reception to next year. We are still getting married this year with just immediate family. But we’re having a vow renewal and reception celebration next year. Question is, should I also postpone my bridal shower until next year??

    Tricky- those you invite to your bridal shower need to be invited to your wedding you’re having soon. Personally I’d wait until next year.

    Technically you’d already be a bride next year. COVID has changed a lot of what was traditional wedding etiquette. You can either postpone or let those who will not be invited to the wedding know that you invited them so you can celebrate with them in some form as COVID is preventing you from inviting them to the wedding.

    I would do the shower this year. I don't think anyone will care that they're invited to the reception but not the minimony. They'll be happy to help you start your married life

    It's completely up to you. Have you considered having a virtual one?

    I agree with Shirley.

    We were invited to our friends' shower, and they're eloping but have a reception/celebration with everyone when they come home. No one bat an eye or thought it was rude!

    I think it depends on why you postponed your reception. Personally, I got married and will be having the shower next year before my reception because the whole point of postponing the reception was to avoid a gathering and for the safety of those attending. No one cares (and if they do and I am unaware of it, then I really don't care after having dealt with a million COVID wedding issues) that I am "technically" already married.
