A: We get this question often and our first response is always to assure our brides that they don't have to invite every single female that is invited to the actual wedding! The second, most valuable piece of advice we can give is this: only invite the ladies in your circle that you're closest with (think closest friends and relatives) and don't forget to invite the women in your groom's family (mother-in-law and sister-in-law's to be, aunts,) cousins etc.) unless they are throwing their own shower for you. The third thing we like to suggest is this: sometimes it's a nice gesture to ask your mother and mother-in-law if they have any close friends they'd like to invite as well. While you may not necessarily be close with them, sometimes parents like to share these milestone's with each other's families. Trust us, just the thought to open the invite up will mean a lot to your family.
