I think if everyone gets along (even if it’s a bit awkward) and your mom and aunt are okay with the cost of inviting them, I don’t see why it would be an issue. 

If you do invite them, it’s possible they might say “oh we wanted to have something for you too!”  I understand that time is an issue for you, but perhaps if you could do a weeknight thing, or something that works best for you, it would be fine, otherwise let them know you appreciate the offer, but you really have no time and would love for them to attend the “official” shower.

lawyeretta:  If your aunt is asking for a guestlist so she can extend invitations to the shower, I would give her everyone’s name and address and let them decide if they want to attend or not. If they don’t feel that they can be civil for the length of the shower, I would assume they will decline.
