Yes, you should at least send an invitation. Who knows maybe they will fly out because it is a special occasion.

Yeah, my own sister who is my Matron of Honor won’t be able to come to she shower and she will still get a courtesy invite. It is good to make them feel included for sure!

i would say definitely invite – what’s the harm if they can’t come?  and i’m pretty sure they will appreciate the invite

i agree…send them an invite. even if they cant make it, they’ll still feel involved with it and will probably be happy that you thought to send them an invite.

Yes, invite them. If anything, it gets you brownie points. 😉 My Future Mother-In-Law and FSILs live 4 hours away but I;m still inviting them to mine. They will come if she can get off work though.

I was in the same boat, and I sent an invite to my Mother-In-Law and of course told her I understood she likely wouldn’t be able to make it. It’s a nice gesture.
