So I think the last baby shower I went to was several years ago (maybe like 7) and it was for my 2nd cousin who was having her baby at the age of 17 so it was a little different. That being said, I need help!!
My SIL has offered to throw me a shower (bff was going to but right now is not in the picture) so I am sooo thankful for SIL doing it. My mother will be helping but it has been several years since we have had any type of shower in my family. I have friends/acquaintances who have babies but am not close enough to have been invited at the time I guess. So since I feel like I haven't been invited to things, even though I want to invite people just to have a big gathering and lots of fun, I am reluctant inviting friends for this reason. Either I haven't been invited to their baby shower or wedding shower so I feel like maybe I shouldn't invite them to mine? So I guess I am looking for etiquette advice on who to invite. Also curious if I should invite my hubby's family even though it will be my brother's wife hosting the shower? I just don't see anyone on that side of the family hosting one for me and I want to include them.
Also, are there any guidelines on how many people you should invite? What would be considered too large of a guest list?
