    I had two showers, and for one I think about 40 people were invited, and 30 made it, and for the other about 50 (?) were invited, and 30 made it? 

    There isn’t an “enough” number. It really just depends on how close to you you want the people there to be! I had my MIL’s friends at mine, most of whom I had never met! sigh. awkward.

    We had a couples shower so we had around 75 people, but it was more of a backyard BBQ/Party than a shower.

    I didn’t have a shower as such, just a hen’s night with bowling and a belly dancing lesson and had about 15 people – it was a nice number!

    I can kind of speak to the “enough guests” thinking.  We threw a bridal shower a while back for a friend and for whatever reason a lot of people couldn’t come (that we assumed would be there).  My concern the whole time, having been to countless showers, was that she wouldn’t get many items off of her registry.  Knowing that she had attended all of the other invited guests showers, I felt like she was “due” to receive the same.  Did my friend feel this way?  No, she was just excited to see the people who could attend, but as one of the party planners, I was thinking, “now she won’t get all of those gifts.”  You go a little batty planning a shower.

    Out of thirty people invited, only eight showed up.  I was a little sad about that, but I had a great time anyway.  My Maid/Matron of Honor completely outdid herself, and I loved the party despite the number of people.  😀

    I can think of maybe 15-20 that I will want there, so maybe 10-15 will actually be able to make it.

    I think there were about 30 invited and then around 20ish came. it was a perfect size–I was able to talk to everyone and had a great time!
