Geez, this is a tough one. Why did she wait so long on the invites? I guess it doesn’t really matter.

Maybe you or she can send out an email to check with people.

Hope it works out for you!

Have her call everyone on the guest list to see if they are attending or not. Since you already gave most of the invitees the heads up about the date, they hopefully kept that date open.

I’d tell your Maid/Matron of Honor to give everyone a friendly call.  Just to apologize for the delay or inconvenience and a request that they still attend.  If they hear from her, they might be more inclined to show up even if its last minute.  And, if you speak to any invitees, there’s no reason (in my opinion) that you can’t say, “I know there was a problem getting the invites to you in time, I hope you’re able to make it, I’d love to have you there”.  I’m sure they’ll make it!

Assuming attendees of the bridal shower are local, it should only take 1-2 days for their invitations to get delivered. You should be able to follow-up with an email over the next few days to check on attendance. Sorry you are having to go through this. It is definitely added work that you shouldn’t be dealing with.
