Recent bride Jennie Smith walks us through the pages of her photo album. How many people came to the shower?

JS: There were about 50 guests—my family and friends, as well as some of my husband;s family members. Tracy set up six tables in her living room and dining room area. She rented the tables, linens, china, and chairs.

Tip: Guests who are invited to the shower must also be invited to the wedding. Make sure to provide your shower hostess with an updated list of your wedding guests.
