    jlc3:  we had 167 people attend the wedding. My bridal shower was about 30 to 40 women. These were the women i was closest with. Aunts, cousins, my girlfriends/bridesmaids, mom andnsister of course. Not every woman that was invited to the wedding was invited to the shower.

    We invited 50 people to the wedding and about 18-20 ladies at the shower. It was the perfect size and amazing. We didn’t play games. Intead we did a High Tea at a French Bistro and just socialized and ate.

    jlc3:  There were 25 women invited to my bridal shower and I think 20 came. I hate being the center of attention so that was more than fine with me!

    About 125 at wedding, around 35 at shower thrown by my Maid/Matron of Honor and BMs. I expected far fewer people given the fact that not many of us lived n he area anymore, but a lot of out-of-state family members and friends drove, took trains and flew just to be there for an afternoon which was such a wonderful surprise!
