You don’t have to invite every female attending the wedding.

Nope.  You invite your close friends and families.  Not the girlfriends of your FI’s friends.

Nope, totally don’t need to invite every girl going to the wedding.  I would even feel awkward if I was one of your FI’s friend’s FI/GF/wife and didn’t know you and was invited.  You should invite his family (sister, aunts, mom, step mom, ect) but SO’s of male invities are definatly not a must.

I would probably just invite the people you’re close to!

You technically can invite who you want, as long as they are invited to the wedding. However I did not invite my Husband’s uncle’s Girlfriend to my shower and she was upset about not being invited (1.completetly forgot about her 2. She was a guest/+1 of an invited person IMO)

I was recently invited to the bridal shower of a bride that I didn’t know. It was the same situation that you are describing, it was my FI’s good friend’s bride. I declined. I’m not a terribly social person and I would have felt really awkward going without ever having met her and without Fiance. We then attended the wedding. It was not an issue at all. So, consider that they might feel just as awkward about it as you do, and even if you do invite them, they might decline the invite.
