I would ask FMIL is she can clearly separate the lingerie shower from the bridal shower. And let her know that you would like to discuss the guest list for the lingerie shower because it’s a more “personal” thing and you want to enjoy yourself and feel comfortable. If  you have 39 women who you don’t really know on that level watching you open risque clothing, it could be a bit of a downer. Lol. I threw my friend a lingerie shower and there were only six of us and we all still had a blast!

Good luck! 🙂

I don’t think you register for lingerie I think they just put your size/cup size on the invite

Perhaps her idea of the garden part of the shower is to help you get some outdoor tools that you might not already own…  (Lawn care items like tools and accessories or even outdoor furniture…(like a patio set…)  I would guess those things would be useful even if you aren’t a gardener…  I agree with your thought that a lingerie only party might seem odd… but then again your MIL may be used to going to such events and may know that her guests will be apt to buy you beautiful nighties and robe sets…that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to receive!

@lsvogel: my husband’s grandma sent me lingerie for my birthday. She actually asked his grandpa if it “looked like me”…..oh boy lol
