That’s a perfect size. I had 16, and I was able to talk to everyone, opening gifts didn’t take 2 hours, and the guests got to spend more time mingling- my Mom was able to meet every friend there. 

Showers aren’t going to be something that most people will make a first priority, and it sounds like your most important women are going to be there, which is awesome.

 I know exactly how you feel. Out of over 30 people invited, only about 15 came. I was initailly disappointed and a little hurt, but once I got to the shower I forgot about all that. The women who were there were the women who I am the closet too and I got a chance to have real conversations with everyone and actually sit down and eat (and I stil got a ton of great gifts)!

I just had my home-town shower, and there was a less than stellar turn out. However, the most important people were there: my two sisters and three cousins (all my bridesmaids), my mom, my FI’s mom, a couple of my aunts and cousins, and one of my really good childhood friends.

It was perfect, because everyone was able to mingle and enjoy each others’ company.

I had 22 people…… which i thought was a small number compared to some other friends’ showers with like 50 guests…. but i realized that when i was at those showers, i didn’t really enjoy myself at all because i didn’t get to actually spend any time with the bride and i didn’t know a lot of people and it’s always a little awkward going to a party when you don’t know anyone!  i think the smaller the number, the more enjoyable it is for you and your guests.  15 sounds like a good number to me!
