My Maid/Matron of Honor just asked me to give her addresses for the shower guests. Do I invite all/most of the female guests that will be invited to the wedding? Is it mostly just my friends and female relatives? I planned on inviting his mom and stepmom, but what about their sisters or close friends? I’d probably prefer a more intimate shower, and am also mindful that my lovely BMs are paying for it, so how many people are invited to your shower?
TIA for answering my barrage of questions!

For my shower, we invited all the women who knew me…my friends, our mutual friends, my relatives, his mom. The only people that I didn’t invite were his parents’ friends (most of whom I never met) and a lot of his relatives (whom I have not met either).

I’m having my mom, sister, grandmas (2), bridal party (3), Future Mother-In-Law, FSILs (2), really close gal pals not in bridal party (4), Aunt, and cousins (3).
I wanted an intimate bridal party too, so I just had very close friends and family (that’s like my entire female family, we’re so tiny of a family!!). If you have a large family and want it intimate, I’d say limit it to the relatives you see at family functions and talk to frequently. I don’t think they’d feel shunned if they haven’t seen you since like your 3rd birthday.
Hopefully I helped another Buckeye out!!
