    I would invite bridal party female members, moms, grandmothers, sisters and any other immediate family like aunts and cousins even if they are out of state. My aunt out of state would be hurt if my aunt in state was invited and she wasn’t even though she probably wouldn’t make the trip. I wouldn’t invite every female guest because then you have people you don’t even know and aren’t family like you said.

    i don’t think you should invite people based on where they are located but rather, how close you are to them

    @Mrs. Meowerson: Agreed – if they can come great! if not – maybe they will send a gift 😉

    i just had mine on sunday 🙂 it was very small – but i dont have a lot of friends – haha thats sad isnt it? I had all 5 of my BMs (2 being my sisters) Future Mother-In-Law, Future Sister-In-Law x 3, my mom and some neighborhood friends of my mom that i have known most of my life

    there were probably about 15 people – maybe.

    My mother and I just completed the list for my shower. I had no clue who was supposed to be included in a shower. We settled on people that were both local and active in my or my mother’s life. My Future Mother-In-Law also was asked who she would like to invite. We are inviting relatives and close friends that are local and my family from a nearby state. We are not inviting my FI’s extended family from another nearby state as I have very little relationship with them. All in all it will be about 30 women (no children). I am inviting 140 people (including children) to my wedding. I hope this helps!

    Just like everything else with your wedding, you should try and envision how you want the day to feel and make choices that lead you closer to that vision. If you don’t want to have a 50 person shower where you will have to make chit-chat with people you have met only once, then don’t!

    Thanks that helps!  I feel like less of a looser now because I don’t have very many female friends outside of my bridal party as well!
