I understand how you are feeling totally. I ended up inviting a couple of girls that are more FI’s friends.  I figure they can always decline and I have no expectations about gifts. I just want to have a girly party 🙂  I”m not planning on inviting anyone who has to travel more than a couple of hours.

I limited my guest list for the shower to family and close friends. I didn’t invite anyone who I don’t know well or talk to on a regular basis. I figured it’s better to have a small group of women I’m close with than a large group of women who are more of acquaintances.

I just ended up saying all women on the guest list, minus those not in driving distance.

I invited 30 women:  my bridal party, my 4 coworkers, my girl friends, my mom’s card club, FI’s mom and step mom.  I really didn’t invite too many people from his side and just stuck with my own friends and family.  If his side wanted to throw me a shower (which they don’t and that’s fine), then I’d except it to be 90% his side and just a little from mine.  🙂

It is difficult to draw the line.  Mine is mostly family (they make up at least 2/3 of the guest list), the wedding party, a few close friends, and a few of my mother’s friends who I know will appreciate being included.

I have more than half family, and then some of my friends. I think I only have two of his friends – they’re also my friends. I also figured that if his side wanted to throw a shower, they would.

Since there’s already a place picked out then that means there’s a guest count limitation, yes?

I would start there.
