Do you send an invite to the guest of honor?
Many showers are a surprise (even if it's a surprise the bride knows is coming), so the bride doesn't get an invite. Even if she knows about the shower, it's understood that as the guest of honor, she'll be there (you, as hostess, will make sure of that!). But an invite makes a great keepsake.
How can I be OK with not being invited?
What is the feeling of being left out called?

Loneliness is a natural reaction to unwanted isolation. “Feeling excluded, rejected, or left out also hits on our sense of self-worth, which we develop through our interpersonal relationships with others,” says psychologist Holly Schiff, out of Greenwich, Connecticut.
