Bridal showers are usually held about 2-3 months out, but there’s no hard and fast rule!  As far as LD family goes, I would send them an invitation anyways.  There’s no harm done if they can’t come, but at least they’ll feel included for being invited.

I was going to say everyhing that BridetoBee2010 said above.  They are typically held about 2-3 months out.  Mine was 2 months to the date out.  And I had lots of long distance invites that we knew wouldnt make it.  They were so thrilled to be thought of.  Some sent gifts, others didnt, but nobody felt obligated to come or send anything.  Id send them invites.  FMIL can (and probably will) tell them they arent expected to go but you were thinking of them

Showers are normally held a few months before the wedding to keep  momentum going. Also, you need to register and that seems like a good amount of time to think about things. Definitely no harm in sending them an invite, I can actually see harm in NOT sending them an invite. Showers are completely up to your wedding party/close family and friends. You are ‘supposed’ to have no say in when/where/who, but if I were you I would encourage my family to invite the long distance people.
