Invited 30 and 20 came. Roughly half of those who didn’t come were Out of Town so we knew that they wouldn’t be there.

There is no right or wrong in terms of how many people you invite. I have been to some wonderfully intimate showers where there have been 10 of us and I have been to showers that have had 60-80 ladies (those were the Italian wedding showers! haha!). Either way, they are wonderful and all about YOU.

My MOH/sister invited I think 60 people, but so far most are saying no due to vacation (middle of the summer is crap timing!) so I will likely have a smaller shower. I think it will be grand no matter what!

I invited at least 40 people (my Bridesmaid or Best Man threw the shower but I took the task of guest list and invites for her because of the cost). I invited a lot of Out of Town friends and our Out of Town family. Let me do the calculations… I would say we had about 18-20 people there, maybe a little less, and I think it was perfect. All of my bridesmaids were there, my mom’s and our family’s closest friends, and a few other friends of mine. Everyone I consider myself close with in town came.

I have 32 invited and my Maid/Matron of Honor said that 9 RSVP’d yes and 11 no already… and I am not the leats bit disappointed. All the people that are coming are ones I love a lot, and my Maid/Matron of Honor, mom, and FMIL are still making this so special.

Even if those that RSVP’d yes don’t show and it’s just my mom, my Maid/Matron of Honor, me, and my Future Mother-In-Law, then I will still be excited!
