Q: Since I'm going to be having three showers, would it be all right to ask that my bridesmaids be invited to only one?

A: The girls in your wedding party are asked to celebrate with you at all pre-wedding events, so they should be invited to all three showers. They aren't required to attend each of them; if they do make it to all three, it's not necessary for them to bring a present each time. (Make sure your friends are aware of this before they receive the invites.)
