So my sister is throwing me a baby shower on May 14th. She hasnt sent out the invitations yet. Most people know they are coming but not sure they know the time and in some cases not sure they know the date.

Would it be wrong of me to send everyone (who I know was planning to come) an email telling them the date and time and just letting them know the invitations are coming? I am not really helping with the shower (its my sister/aunt/good friend who are throwing it). But some of my friends/guests work weekends and I want to make sure they are able to attend (and ensure she throws a good party because I know that is a concern of hers).

So do I send out the email or not?

I think if people are asking you about it, then yes you can tell them. But I wouldn't send an email out everyone. Just the people who have asked you.

Have you talked to your sister about when she's going to send out the invites? She needs to get rolling, maybe offer to help her address them?

she got the invations today in the mail, and was addressing envelopes when i talked ot her earlier. That makes me feel better! I am just a worrier!

(I have offered to help in any way I can, but I think she sees it as me not trusting her and so keeps refusing me). I am gonna make those flower pens I saw in an earlier post here as a party favor though! I LOVED THEM!

I love flower pens I used to make them when I sold Avon and I would spray the flowers with whatever perfume was on sale that week... they are a big hit! (and super easy to make, too!)
