I think there were about 35 people at mine.  I had no say in any of it though, so I don’t know the invited-vs-attended count!

20 sounds like a great number though – you’ll have a good time!

I had my shower this last weekend and we had 25 people, it was a great size party.

I just looked at the spreadsheet, and got really sad. We invited 24 (not including the four ladies hosting), and only six guests have said yes with 10 nos, and then she’s tracking down the rest. :

@peachbaby4008:  i’m having two – the one i had last weekend here where i live there were about 20 people, and next weekend the one in my home state will probably be about the same. 20-30.

@vorpalette:  that’s how mine was too, its ok. i ended up just telling a few of my solo friends they should bring a friend or two and that beefed it up a bit. i also wouldnt be surprised if some non-responders show up (i fully expect that to happen at mine)

Just had my first shower. 20 were invited, 15 attended. All of the no’s had legitimate reasons. I’m having two other showers though.

@TwoStatesBride:  A lot of them are out of town, but others from the same area ARE coming (family). People from in town, who I KNOW do not have to work that day aren’t coming. I was really hoping that FI’s cousin’s wife would come so that he and his cousin could spend the day together, since they couldn’t come to our bachelor/bachelorette party. Unfortunately, two of my bridesmaids can’t make it, and the other three friends on the list haven’t responded.

@vorpalette:  i had that happen too. one of my closest friends decided she just wasn’t going to come, despite the fact that she was in town and wasn’t busy with something in particular (i.e. another engagement). it was super awkward discussing the shower around her before or after. :/

weddings are just weird in that you really start noticing who puts your life at the top of their priority list and who doesn’t. two of my 4 in-town bridesmaids missed my shower because of super random-ass reasons. :/

The shower invitations were in the format of “regrets only.”  Approximately 60 people were invited and I’d say somewhere around 35 showed up.  The vast majority did not call the host to tell them they weren’t coming and they ditched.  So, there was a ridiculous amount of food paid for and wasted.  And now, I await the formal invitation response cards which are moving in at a glacial pace.  I’m at end end of my patience with how incredibly rude and inconsiderate people are!  🙁

I think 26 were invited and there were 5 declines (all with good reasons and 2 even sent gifts!) and 4 people who as far as I’m aware, flaked completely but I do wonder if they’ll show day of.  Getting married has been eye opening as far as who doesn’t think so much of you, or who thinks nothing of causing unwanted drama (I had someone I didn’t particular care for try and invite herself to said shower).

@vorpalette:  I’m hosting a friend’s shower, and the rsvp deadline is today and I’ve had about 6 out of 30 reply…  🙁  Really irritating since I don’t know most of them to track them down!
