I have heard that traditionally you invite all women to the shower that are invited to the wedding, but I think nowadays it is more commonly excepted to have a small shower with just close friends and family.

No, I don’t think it’s common to invite every woman that’s invited to the wedding.  Showers are generally for close family and friends.

I think at one time people did that, but it’s much more common to just invite close friends and family.

My Future Mother-In-Law asked that we invite her one friend to the shower who is invited to the wedding.  She apparently assumed we were inviting all the women who were attending the wedding to the shower.  She told her friend she was invited, not realizing my BMs were throwing a small shower.  I added her to the list since I felt bad.

We invited 194 people to the wedding, and I had a shower guest list of 25… if that gives you an idea 🙂
