    What about if your sister throws a shower for you from your family & friends, and the FSILs throw a shower for you from their family and his friends?  It would be split up so that each family member/group gets to do what they want-since not everyone is in the same place anyway?  By The Way, My daughter had a baby shower from 3,000 miles away.  I think one of my SILs opened the gifts for her, and my brother’s family videographed it, they sent my daughter the video and a journal type book with who was there, what gift they gave, and then some pages were “autographed” with best wishes from the guests. 🙂

    @SandyThePoet: Any way they could all be in on the planning? Maybe explain to your FI’s sisters how important this is to your sister, and they could all work together to throw you a shower? And you could also explain to your sister how important it is to you that your FSIL’s are reaching out to you, maybe that would make her more willing to throw a joint shower.

    That’s a toughie really. Especially since more than one shower will cause you to have more travel expense… Extra funds and free time is hard to come by when planning a wedding.

    @creativeplannertobee:  I agree with this.  Your sister throws it for your side of the family/some friends, Future Sister-In-Law for his side of the family/ some friends.

    Lots of my friends had multiple showers. Usually from each side of the family. but I totally get not being able to afford to travel before the wedding, my guess is though that you will make up for that cost in gifts … though I know that isnt your concern here! I don’t think Im having any showers thrown for me ( i have 2 sisters and 2 FSIL!) so please have two showers!:)
