FI and I have a guest list of close to 165 (we were shooting for 150 but you know how that goes). My MOH has pretty much taken the lead on planning my bridal shower with input from my mom as well as other bridesmaids. She found the locations (it is a secret) and asked for a guest list of who I would like invited to the shower. I originally wanted a smaller wedding and thought I can have the guest list for the shower reduced to maybe 50-60 women.
Here is the question- do I have to invite all 87 women on our guest lists or is it acceptable to have the shower be on the smaller side. I don't quite feel comfortable inviting some FI's parents family friends who I have never met. It just seems a bit gift grabby to me. I also have some women that are friends of the family that I would cut back on as well so it would not be me just cutting back on FI's side.
Is this okay or should I just invite everyone?
