What is the etiquette on inviting in-laws to showers?
My in-laws and I are not close, and never have been. To the point that before the engagement I had not seen them in 3 years. They have expressed they will not be throwing a shower for me.
I now have other women in my life who have offered showers for me. One is mostly my moms friends. One is my side of the family. One is my friends. And another is other women whom I have gotten to know over the years. Basically his mom and sister wont know anyone at them.
Do I still invite them to one? All? My hesitation inviting them comes from in the past they have spoken about feeling out of it at social functions and what not so I am not even sure they would want to be there. Also, I want my showers to be happy events where I don’t have to watch every word I say due to judgement by them (in the past even the amount i touch my hair has brought comments after I left).
