Maybe you can sit down with your fiance’s mom and talk about plans for the shower – or talk to your friend’s mom and ask her about "co-hosting". You can include both of them on the shower invitations, and then they can split up the costs and responsibilities and not feel guilty about having more people from one side of the family. Is that a possibility?

Well, since your mom’s best friend is the one who generously offered to host the event, you or your mother should ask her what she is thinking in terms of a guest list that she can handle.  Based upon that list, you can give your FI tell his mother how much extra room there is on the guest list.  Your FI can suggest that if she wants to add 40 people (which is a completely unreasonable request from anyone who isn’t hosting the event) that she have her own bridal shower or needs to pay for her guests.
