I invited my bridesmaids, Mother-In-Law, Mom, my flower girls, and their moms.  We had a great time.  My Mother-In-Law wanted me to invite all the women in the family, but I put my foot down.

As of right now, I am planning on inviting my BMs (all 7 of them), my brother’s wife, future sister-in-laws, and future mother in law, and my mom.

The only reason I’m not inviting my aunts is because they all live out of town and I would rather keep it small-but that is just my preference!  If any grandmothers were living (his or mine) I would invite them too!

One of my friends who recently got married invited all of her BMs, aunts, cousins, grandmothers, close friends…I think it is really up to who you want to be there.

I’m inviting my bridesmaids (6 of them), my mom, my stepmom, my Future Mother-In-Law and my reader (brother’s girlfriend).  I thought about inviting a few other people that have helped me out along the way, but the list just kept getting longer and longer.  I couldn’t invite some without others and it was just a mess.  Ultimately I decided on wedding party and moms only.

I would say bridesmaids, flower girls (if of appropriate age), mom, future mother in law and any sisters of yours and your fiance.  If you feel the need to include anyone else, it is completely up to you and how intimate you want it to be.

Typically, it is bridesmaids, sisters of his and yours if they are not bridesmaids, flower girls & their moms, your mom and your future mother in law. These are almost always "girls only" events, so no fiance!

We are inviting all the women invited to the wedding because we won’t be having a big rehearsal dinner – only immediate family and those in the wedding. So its something for our Out of Town guests. Men don’t care about rehearsal dinners! It will function much like a shower without the showering with gifts part – a way for all the women in my life to enjoy each other’s company.
