    We only invited the groom’s mother and aunts. I would have felt very uncomfortable to have the GMs’ SOs there if I wasn’t also extremely close friends with them, too.

    i gave my Maid/Matron of Honor the list, i think it was close to 30-45 but some were courtsey invites…i invited all the close female relatives,friends, the groomsmens SOs, female coworkers ( close with) and a few aunts and relatives on FIs side.

    the groomsmens SOs..we all see each other several times a year at diff functions and parties-we do socialize  often so it would be odd not invite them.


    I have a huge family and so does Fiance but i did not want to invite ALL females on guest list- specially since there is several I will be meeting the day of the wedding for the 1st time.

    Because of distance (1500 miles between families) my shower is all females on my side, a few local friends, and FI’s mother, grandmother, and sister will fly up.

    I just had my first one this past weekend, and it was perfect! They invited close friends and family, a lot of my family lives far away so we ended up with about 18 there, it was nice only two people that were invited did not come, and they still sent gifts – how sweet of them! My Future Mother-In-Law is also holding a shower for me as she is in CA (I’m in BC) and I have no clue who is invited to that. I think close friends and family is the norm.
