@DomesticDiva:  That sounds manageable.  We invited 80 guests to the wedding and around 20 to the shower.

We had 100 guests, and 20 invited to the shower (ladies only, and mostly family). So we’re at 20% too.

Right now we have about 140+ guests and 40+ to the shower.

The “+” is for the unknown actual number of people/women FMIL wants to invite but hasn’t told us about. SIGH.

I once attended a 150 person wedding with a 50 person shower!

It definitely didn’t seem excessive!

We invited 116. I think I invited about 25 to the shower, but some were out of state and I knew wouldn’t attend. I think 18 attended?

i invited only women.
