Anyone can host the bridal shower who offers to do it, and I think that the Bridal Party women should be invited to both events. Both sides of the family should be invited as well, unless there is a great distance they’d have to travel and would prefer to host another shower for either just their side or people locally who will be invited to the wedding.

Most showers have only 20-30 people at them, but I’ve been to some that have 75+ (which I find ridiculous,since it takes WAY too long to open all those gifts!). Not every woman invited to the wedding is invited either, and should be only close family and friends.

There’s lots of opinions out there, so go with the one that works best for you in  your situation!

Anyone can host for you. Usually its just close family and friends, but people that are on the guest list. You shouldnt invite someone to the shower thats not invited to be a guest at the actual wedding. Im sure you know that though.

My Mom hosted my shower along with my Maid/Matron of Honor. My mom did all the invitations, planning of the food, hosted it at her home and my Maid/Matron of Honor took care of all the games and prizes for the games. I invited all the family ladies (in town) from my side and my FI’s side, my bridal party ladies, and all my girlfriends. I didn’t invite FI’s friends that are girls or women on our guest list that I am not close to (mostly from FI’s side). I think we invited about 30 or so about 20 or so showed up. Hope that helps!
