    Only people who are invited to the wedding should be invited to the shower – so make sure she knows who is on the guest list and who isn’t and invites to the shower accordingly.

    twinter91:  Tell her people who are not invited to the wedding shall not be invited to the shower. End of discussion.

    Your step-mom can take you out to dinner or have a small shower with a few ladies who are invited to the wedding if she wants to.

    twinter91:  Tell her something along the lines of you are honoured that she is going to throw you a shower and love that she wants to make it into a big event, but that you do not feel that it is appropriate that someone who is not invited to the wedding is invited to the shower and that you need her to stick to the guest list.

    It’s incredibly rude to invite people to a shower and not invite them to the wedding.  If she invites them, you’d best figure out how to accomodate them at your wedding.
