- Wedding: May 2017 - Ocean front
Is it bad that I’m not even wanting a shower?? Lol
I’m an older bride though…..we have all that we need for the most part, we already live together for years etc. We feel that by having a shower is just asking people to buy a stuff which we don’t really need or want them to have to do plus we feel that everyone sharing our special day is more than enough of a gift. :+)
We even thought about making a notation on the invitations saying “your presence is gift enough” but then I feel that may seem controlling and people will basically do what they want….but we def don’t expect anything.

Thank you all for your responses. Holy Moly, for some of you I don’t even know how you know that many people, let alone that many to invite to your shower!
I think around 20-25 were invited and 10 are coming. I just wanted to see if that was typical for turn out. I think I might enjoy it more with less people though.
Thank you for your responses, ladies!

We invited about 125 and I had about 25 at my shower. Only about 5 didn’t come to the shower and every single person invited to the wedding came! I kid you not!

Sounds like a lot of people only had one shower so the numbers are bigger. Those big showers sound like a lot of fun though! In our area you usually have one shower for each side of the family, a lingerie shower for close friends, and a “general friends, co-workers, church friends, neighbors shower.” Depending on day and time, it seems like 15-20 are invited and maybe a dozen are able to come.

I’m not having a shower, but I’ve thrown a ton of them. I find between 50-75% usually attend, and most of my friends have requested around 30 guests be invited.
