My sister is hosting my baby shower. she is only inviting my family to this shower which is a total of 33 people (including us) and I have 13 friends i would like to invite. since my sister has ask to host my baby shower i have cut my list serveral time. first cutting out my parent friends from being invited then cutting out my husband family (my mother in law wanted to host her own). the other day my sister ask me to cut my list again and its starting to causing unneeded argument with my sister. I can't cut my family member out and i am having a hard time trying to pick what friends not to invite to the shower.
the only solution i had was either 1) help pay for the shower (which did not go over well with my sister) or 2) not invite any of my friends (which i am bummed about)
my question is would it be horrible not to invite any of my friends to the shower and just explaining to them that my shower is a family invite only?
