That does not sound like fun. Honestly, I’d remind the bride that you’re already spending a significant amount of money on this wedding, at that your budget is capped at 30 people for the shower. You might add that you understand if she’d like to decline the shower altogether. You’re completey in the right here. The bride doesn’t get to dictate the guest list size for parties hosted by others.

Tell her that you just can’t afford it.

Be honest.

70 people is a LOT!!

Just tell her “I’m sorry, I am only comfortable hosting a shower with up to 30 guests, as originally planned.”  70 people is a very high guest list for a bridal shower.

For someone who is on a very tight budget herself she should understand that you are keeping your finances in mind.  Are there other BM’s who can help out as well? 

I would let her know that you would love to accomodate her request, but it just simply isn’t possible. Maybe even suggest another venue, say someone’s home and people can bring food to help offset the cost? This way she can invite more people, and you don’t have to worry about a head count per person?

Just some thoughts but good luck!

This bride and her Fiance need a reality check. They are already planning a wedding they can’t afford.

I would tell her that my budget does not allow for 70 guests, If she wants to invte more than 30, she will have to subsidize the expenses.

Tell her if she wants to invite 70p, she needs to find a new venue, two find a way to pay for it. She being ridiculous. Considering how many people are pitching in to pay for her wedding, you would think she would be a bit more understanding.
