I think that if you’re upfront with the people who will be invited just to the reception back home, there’s no reason not to invite them to the shower. I can foresee a problem if they think that because they’re invited to the shower, then they’re invited to the wedding, but as long as you’re clear it shouldn’t be a problem.

I’m not sure about hurt feelings and what not, but it seems like everyone can be invited to the shower and that will be fine. You shouldn’t feel bad about inviting people to certain parts, which means you should be forthcoming about that. Everyone should know where they stand, so if they don’t want to come to the shower because they’re being a baby… they don’t have to come. But give them a chance to make their decision I think. Either way, everyone will be involved with y’alls marriage somehow.
