@pinotgrigio:  Unless your FI’s side of the family is throwing you their own shower, you should invite his family to yours as well. 

I’m planning to go down our guest list for all the women for the shower.  Anyone family, his side or mine since last I knew it’s 1 shower for me, plus my girlfriends.  Dates of your male guests, or their girlfriends you don’t know well/at all, don’t need to be invited.

@pinotgrigio:  I would talk to your fiance or future mother in law to figure out which of his relatives should be invited. If there are too many for your MOH to handle, you could suggest having 2 showers – in fact it might be a good idea to get a number that your MOH would be comfortable with so you have something to counter with if your FMIL thinks she needs to invite 80 people.

I ended up with 2 showers…one for family (H has a ton of female cousins/aunts), and a second with my close female friends.  You should invite family, and if they don’t see you often, they might not come, but definitely extend an invite!
