    The invites have gone out. It’s a shower. Go, have fun and send thank you’s. 🙂

    However, you as the bride, would have been in charge of a guest list. If you feel bad about guests “doubling up”, why were they invited? I’m having a family shower and then a gf shower. The only doubles are my mom and her twin sister, who I’ve directed NOT to come b/c she’s throwing the other. 🙂

    I am having a couples shower this weekend, and had my bridal shower last month. Many of the guests are the same, but including their SO. I told those guests to please not worry about bringing another gift, we just would love to see their smiling face and share the day with them. FMIL is throwing this shower so FI can get in on some of the pre-party fun. Most of our friends that did not come to the bridal shower are unable to come, so it will mainly be family and guests who came to the first one. No matter, they love us and want to share our excitement. Just enjoy yourself and have fun!
