The more the merrier.  As long as they’re being invited to the wedding, then they can be invited to the shower.  If they can’t attend your wedding, the shower might be a nice time for them to wish you well.

Charm bracelet covered it all… as long as they are invited to the wedding, it’s appropriate to invite them to your bridal shower! 🙂

I agree – anyone (female) invited to the wedding can be invited! Personally, I love going to showers and such, so I would love to be invited even if I’m not super close to the bride. Anyone who might feel awkward going or who doesn’t want to buy a shower and wedding gift c can simply not come.

I’m in a similar dilemma….with one addition…we’re inviting some of FH’s coworkers and 2 of his clients (that’s he’s very friendly with and would have crashed the cocktail hour even without a wedding invite!) as well as some of his friends that we’ve double dated with. Do I include them all on my shower list? Without them, my list is large (over 50 people!). I’m concerned about the cost for the BMs but also don’t want to offend anyone. In my experience, rifts that last years often occur because of ettiquette breaches at weddings and funerals, and I’m trying to prevent MY wedding from being one of THOSE.

Ask whoever is hosting your shower(s) how many people they can accommodate.  You don’t want to overwhelm the hostess by giving her a list of 60 names when her house might only fit 25 women.  

As a general rule, only invite people to the shower that are being invited by name to your wedding.  (So you wouldn’t invite people that are only coming as the guest of a friend)
