As it is coming time for my shower I want your opinions on some things. My husband and I just got married and we did a small wedding (30 people). This upset A LOT of our friends.
My husband and I both work as bartenders and worked in downtown Orlando for many years. We are both social people with big friend circles, some with kids but most are still single. I also have a big family (4 sisters, re-married parents) the whole thing.
With our wedding being so small I wanted to make the baby shower something bigger to include those friends who just didn't make the wedding list. Budget was only $4000 with a full paid brunch and drink menu.
I thought nothing about my recent guest list of 90 people until I saw some of your posts on this blog. The baby shower is really a baby barbecue open house at my mothers (who has a huge back yard) and since January in Florida isn't too cold we are renting a tent and just getting a couple kegs. We really just want it to be a come, spend time with us, have some cocktails, play some games, and be no pressure.
With that being said is 90 too much? My mother doesn't care and is so excited for the baby shower but I just wanted your opinions on the theme and guest list number.
PS. We are also doing no wrapping for gifts if they are brought. After 3 friends who recently had baby showers doing 2 hour+ openings I would hate to put my single friends through that and expect everyone to sit there gift after gift after gift...
