The time has come for me to start working on my guest list for my bridal shower… it’s kinda small. I have about 15-18 people, including my mom and 4 bridesmaids. I don’t have any family on my side, just my parents. I have a lot of friends at work but I feel weird/guilty inviting any of them… I don’t want them to think I want them to buy me stuff (this whole shower thing is kinda awkward for me).
How many people are you putting on your list?

I’m having 2 showers so that adds to the list. In total we’ll invite around 60 pp. I think the total of invites are far greater than the amount that will actually show, there are a lot of people that are out of town but will be attending the wedding so we couldn’t just not invite them.

I have a fairly large family, so with just them the list is about 25 ladies then FIs family is another 10, then the BMs are 6 and a couple of super close friends, so around 45/50-ish (and that’s not counting any kids – I think it will prolly end up being an adult-only affair)

My mom was really in charge of the shower guest list. I honestly didn’t care if I had one or not (although, I’m so appreciative of the one I got), and I gave my mom ad sister complete control over it, and just said to be sure that my husband’s family was equally as included as far as invites go.
I think in the end, there were about 25 who attended, and about 30 had been invited. It was overwhelming for a three-hour shower, but it was fun seeing so many wonderful people.
