I invited all of my female family and friends. I didn’t invite his family because I didn’t know them very well. I think we had 18-ish, if I remember correctly.

Don’t invite people not invited to the wedding, it’s considered rude. Other than that, anyone.

@pandaboo: Oh, and my mom wanted some of her friends invited, so we invited them too. Good luck! My bridal shower was so much fun.

I’m only inviting immediate family and the bridal party.

All the ladies that were invited to the wedding were invited to the shower. We had 40 some guests attend.

I have not had mine, but I was planning on inviting all the ladies that are invited to the wedding. BUT… knowing that more than half can not attend as they are out of state, but didnt want them to feel as if they were not “invited”… makes it hard with all his family out of state.. ahhhh…

I haven’t had mine either (and won’t for quite a while!) but we’re planning on inviting all the ladies that are invited to the wedding. Most likely, though, the majority won’t be able to make it because they’re Out of Town guests.

I think we have a list of 45 to attend my shower.  It will be large, but both my fiance have big families… plus, I want some of my girlfriends to be there.  So exciting!

Our shower was thrown by my mom and his mom so it was both sides of the family.  I invited, all of my female famly, as well as his (he was present for the entire shower) and my female friends.  All of those people resulted in 80 people in attendance.  Large, yes, but I have a very large immediate family and lots of friends.  All of the women invited to the wedding were not invited to the shower, ie. his friends, coworker counterparts.
