Your closest friends make your wedding shower special, but it's better to save your girls some cash and send only one shower invite to each. Our wedding experts discuss invitation etiquette in our daily post.

Can I invite the same friends to more than one shower?

Since a shower invitation requires a gift, it's best not to invite someone to more than one. (The exceptions are your bridesmaids, who are generally invited to all showers, with the understanding that they're not expected to bring a present to each.) One solution: Ask the hostesses to "merge" the showers. That way, no one will feel left out or putout.
