Shower guests should be the immediate family members along with the bridal party, as well as close friends and family. If you’re doing it as a couples shower, the amount may (or may not) double. I tried that, and none of the males were interested in attending it, so that idea went down the drain.

 

Most showers in our family are between 30-35 total, and I believe showers should be kept to small and more intimate affairs.

The number of guests is really up to the hosts of the shower, not the bride or groom.  It is their wallet and budget that drives the guest list size.  100 is crazy.  As pp said, it should be  those closest to the couple.

Ours was about 30 people – close family, close friends. Some guys came, but mostly the ones who were close friends of my FI.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  100? That’s huge! It is usually much smaller. I also would leave it up to the person hosting as the bride/groom are not to plan their own (the most you should do is send off the wedding guest list so they know who is invited and do not accidentally invite someone who has not been invited).
