i would invite everyone to the second shower, whether they came to the first or not.

i’m having a similar issue -FSIL and fi’s aunt offered to throw me a small get together/shower, but when my mom asked if my grandma, aunt, counsin and moh could come they said they wanted to keep it smaller… so my mom and moh are throwing me another one… i think they’ll invite everyone to the second one and if fi’s family doesn’t want to come to the second one, we wont be offended but i just don’t want anyone to feel left out because they didn’t get an invite.<br /><br />I know its all done with good intentions, and its super sweet of them to do anything like this but i really wish they would of allowed everyone, or not done it at all, its just gets too complicated and i’m afraid feelings will get hurt =(

Guests should only receive the honour of gifting you once.  It sounds like his family is hosting a shower for their side of the family (and adding your immidiate relatives).  Just let that happen.  It doesn’t seem like they are really asking for your input on the guest list.

Don’t shower double dip (except your mom and sister, who should be at both).

I had a friends only shower and also a family shower, thrown by two different people, there was ZERO guest overlap except my mom and me. If I had a sister she probably would have been at both as well. Inviting people to multiple showers typically isn’t done – it seems a bit grabby. You’re doing the right thing.
