WeddingBecks:  I think it’s best done on a case by case basis. Some people, especially older relatives may feel included by getting the invitation. Others may wonder why they are being invited to a shower, when they are already incurring expenses ++ to attend your wedding.

Depending on who is actually extending the invitation, they may want to include a short note to the effect that “we know you won’t be able to attend, but we didn’t want you to feel left out”.

julies1949:  I agree here.

Case by case basis based on who you think would like to be included and who you think might actually be able to come. I wouldn’t invite anyone that has to get on a plane to come (unless your family doesn’t think that’s a big deal). For mine, I didn’t invite my grandmother that was traveling from across the country, but I did invite DH’s aunts who live 3-4 hours away. I figured they would probably like to be included and it was at least feasible for them to come if they wanted.

I also invited all the women that are invited to the wedding. Out of town guests likely will not be able to make it, but I didn’t want to exclude anyone on the off chance that they may be in town.
