I think you should be firm in your decision. Tell her you are watching your wedding budget during this recession, and it has forced you to put a limit on your guest list. Thus deeming it inappropriate to invite the women in the area who won’t be attending the wedding.

If she still remains persistent….maybe if more girls are in town a few days before your wedding (i.e. other bridesmaids, family, etc), she could consider hosting it then.

I think you should tell her directly that you don’t want the traditional shower.  Maybe you guys can plan a nice spa weekend together?  That sounds like so much fun!  And the co-ed idea sounds fun too.  If she’s still insistent, then I’d suggest she plan a shower in a location more people can travel to, maybe set up accommodations for Out of Town shower guests?  It seems like a bit much though.  In the end, if you’re firm about what you want, she really shouldn’t insist on going against it.

Stand your ground and tell her thank you but NO final answer!
