I am having two showers.  I was born and raised in Vermont but am now living in Massachusetts – where FI is from – for the past 2.5 years.  I am having a shower ‘back home’ for all of my Vermont friends and family and having a shower in Mass for all of my Mass friends and family!  It totally makes sense and saves people from having to travel.  The only people I am inviting to both are my immediate family and bridesmaids.  Everyone else will be invited to the shower that they live closest to.  

 

I wouldn’t stress out about it too much – if your friends want to throw you a shower – I say go for it!

they definitely don’t have to be invited. if they want to throw you a shower, they can do so.

I had a shower in my home town in Upstate NY (14 hours from where I live now)  We did not invite any of FI’s family.  My FMIL was invited to my NC shower but no one else on FI’s side of the family.

Do two showers.  They will appreciate it more.

I agree, I am having 2 showers in to different states.  People are not invited to both showers, just the one that is closest to them.  My MOH is throwing one and my FMIL is throwing the other.

FI’s family and my family all live about 30 minutes apart, but I’m only inviting one family or the other to a shower.  We both have pretty large families, so a shower including all of them would get pretty overwhelming. 

I think you’re totally fine to have two showers.  That way at each shower you can keep the guest list smaller and it can be a more intimate affair.
