I think you should invite them. If they choose not to come, then that’s their decision. However if you don’t invite them, it could hurt their feelings. 11 yrs is a long time ago, and you are starting a new life with a new partner. I’m sure they would want to celebrate this with you (if they are able to go).

I would invite them, but not get upset if they don’t come, seeing as it’s a second wedding. You might also consider calling it a bridal “sprinkle” and coming up with a lighter option for gifts (a theme, a white elephant, something like that). I know if you were my cousin/neice/friend I would want to come to the second shower, even if you were married before as a young one.

partyplanner83:  I agree with what PPs have said. I would invite them, even if you are not expecting them to come. This way, at least they will know you thought of them and they can feel included in your excitement and happy time.
