I would send them invites so they don’t feel left out.

I agree I would send the invites as well if they are close to you (emotionally).

I’m inviting people like this. I just sent them an email ahead of time letting them know that I understood it would be difficult for them to make it, but that if they were available and interested, I’d love to have them at my shower. They all responded magnanimously, telling me that they were so glad/happy I thought of them even if they can’t make it. It can be a nice gesture so long as it isn’t perceived as an unreasonable expectation.

I think the basic rule of etiquette is that you invite all the women who are invited to the wedding.  We’re inviting my fiance’s female relatives to my shower out of courtesy even though they live out of town and I have never met any of them.  It’s doubtful that they’ll come, but at least we’re extending the invitation and making them feel included.
