I invite basically all the females who were invited to the wedding (minus a few people like my FI’s work colleague’s spouses whom I have never met).  It made it easy to make the list then!  I think 40 people were invited, and a little over 20 came to my bridal shower on Sunday.  I would finalize your wedding guest list before making the bridal shower list.

It’s your bridal shower, so you should invite the people you want to share the day with. If you aren’t interested in inviting your fmil’s friends, you don’t have to, that’s totally reasonable.

However if you know that you aren’t going to want to invite the people that your fmil wants, then why ask her for her input? If she is making things difficult, I would just avoid asking her opinion. Unless she is the one throwing the shower, she should just be invited as a guest, and doesn’t really need to have much input in planning the party.

Sorry your FMIL’s such a pain. If you invite them to the shower, you have to invite them to the wedding – I was in the same position my mother sent out shower invites to people NOT on our guest list – and she’d seen it 100 times already!! Now I’m stuck inviting them.

If those ladies are the 1st to go off the list though, then I wouldn’t invite them to your shower because you can’t cross them off the guest list later.
