Leave it in the fmil’s hands.  She is throwing the shower. Of course, etiquette says they should be invited to the wedding but frankly if she hosts the shower and invites the guests I don’t think you are responsible.

If your fmil is throwing you a shower you don’t have to worry about the ettiquette of it.  You never asked for it and she is hosting it.  I would ask her to make sure those that are invited to the shower and not the wedding know that it doesn’t mean they missed their wedding invites or something.  Just that she is throwing you a shower despite the fact that you are having a smaller wedding guest list.  Some people may not buy you gifts and some may not show, but some will go because family will be there and they want to go.  It may customary in grooms family.
