I’d love to know this too! I feel like my guest list for both showers and bachlorette have a lot of people invited! I’d like to know if this is normal or not?

I don’t remember exact numbers (it was over 2 years ago now) but it was something along these lines:

Bachelorette: 4-5

Shower: 30 ish (both mine and DH’s family and female friends all at one shower).

I had 25 at my shower. Most of the guests were family (no estranged family members.. just the ones we see fairly regularly except for my relatives who flew in from MI) and a few close friends. I was glad to keep it fairly small! I think it would have been awkward to have people who I wasn’t particularly close there.

I had my 4 best girlfriends at my bachelorette weekend and the group was the perfect size!

I had two showers because the family  plus friend combined was too big so each ended up being around 20. My Bachelorette party was a day event, dinner, and going out, and I had some people hang for the entire thing, and some people come to only part of it so its hard to give a number. But at dinner we probably have… 15 people?

I did not have a bachelorette party but my bridal shower was very intimate. I had 7 bridesmaids there, as well as maybe 5 more friends and then some very close family friends and my mother in law and one of my sisters in law. I would say about 15-20 people.

Shower: combined with both families and friends= 45ish

Bachelorette: invited 30ish (cousins, lots of friends, I invited several of DH’s friends who are girls that I’ve become close with). 16 girls came with us to the dance class, then we had dinner, and 16 girls came with us out to the bars, though it wasn’t the same 16 girls. I anticipated more like 10-12 when I gave my Maid/Matron of Honor the list, but several of my friends/cousins that are from out of town came in to celebrate! It was so fun 🙂

I had three bridal showers and there were about 15-20 people at each (give or take a few). For my bachelorette party I had seven girls.

Maybe 25 at the shower and 2+me at the bachelorette party.

Bridal showers can get unwieldy once you get over about 30 women. I’d split the party up into a few showers for difference social groups if there are a lot of women to be involved.

I had 15-20 or so at my shower, mostly immediately family or long time family friends. Almost all of FI’s family lives out of state.

We had about 75-90 people at our shower, but it was both sides of our family, and it was a couples shower, so both men and women. I had about 15 people at my bachelorette party.

All the local women will be invited to the shower, so about 50-60 ish females.  Nogt sure how many will come.  Also for now we’re just planning for 1 shower and I gave my list to my bm a few weeks ago.

Bachelorette party, hoping for a MUCH smaller group.  Maybe 10 or so. We’ll see what my bm thinks.

The serenade will also be small I hopw, with maybe 20ish people.  And the Rehearsal Dinner will have all my oot family plus the wedding party.  Shoudl be around 30ish or so I think.
