I was going to provide a list, but my Fiance took the reigns and gave his mom our guest list and they sorted it out together. I did hear that a relative of his who I have only met once was invited (although I’m not sure if she’s coming), so now I’m worried that there will be a bunch of people who I don’t know there!

I don’t get why it’s “tacky” that you gave her a list, especially if she asked for one…you’ll have fun! Relax and enjoy it!

@eagle:  yay!  i started by asking the host how many people she’d be comfortable accommodating, and she said 20, so i went from there.

My Bridal Party just asked for mine as well…I sent them the entire list and highlighted the females I know well enough to invite to a shower. I noted about five that were maybes for a variety of reasons that I noted. It will come down to the party hosts, but it’s definitely not tacky to help them out with a guest list. We ended up cutting about 70 people from our guest list and my Bridal Party probably doesn’t know exactly who made the list and who didn’t…what’s tacky is accidently inviting someone to the shower who isn’t invited to the wedding.

For me, the host told me what groups she wanted to invited and I gave her the names of all the people in those groups and their contact info.

My mom is “paying” for my shower…I know etiquette states that she shouldn’t, but oh well.  I will be providing her a list of people to invite and their addresses.  I don’t think she would know where to start without a list.

Sh*t son..thats a pretty relaxed list you’ve got there! I had to send out 65 invitations by bride’s demand. Was not happy!

I gave my MOH/mom (hosting the shower) a list because they had no idea who to invite. I didn’t know that was tacky?…
