What’s wrong with two showers? I had two showers. One thrown for me by my family (a cousin actually) and one thrown for me by my maid of honor. The only person who attended both was my mom.

Maybe you want to get everyone together for one big bash, but that could be a solution. Just split up the guest list. Just don’t do them back-to-back on the same day like I did!

Two showers, two different guest lists. Personally I think your Aunt’s ideas sound like more fun!

I had a similar situation.  My maiden of honor is a college student who lives halfway across the country.  My bridesmaids either don’t know anyone else in the bridal party or know one other person.  Therefore, my FMIL decided to plan a shower.  Only she wanted to do it on her own terms, when she wanted to and how she wanted to-even if my maiden of honor couldn’t be there.  After much arguing and stress, it was finally decided she’d have her own shower and my mom would give me another with the help of some local bridesmaids.  Only now she’s trying to get me to invite half my family to hers….good luck!  I hope it all works out for you!
