@luluvohn:  Well, we’re having similar issues. We are a long distance couple and soon I’ll be moving on my own to another city. In order to make everyone feel involved this is what we came up with:

Engagement Party in City A (where I live now)

Wedding Showers in City B (where I will be moving to (or if someone else pays/hosts then their city))

Wedding in City C (where he lives now and will move to)

In your situation is it possible for you to hold it where the most amount of people are just give them plenty of room to buffer in order to save up to come to your wedding to. If it’s within budget can you pay for them? Can you see if maybe you can get a discount flight for them?

Also, do you mind holding a wedding shower and not a bridal shower so you can also invite your close male friends so it doesn’t look so empty?

@luluvohn:  No. The only people (with exception to Fiance and I) that will be getting an invitation are immidiate family members. They will not be expected to travel though as we don’t want to stress them out financially. I don’t know how much your budget is, but for us the engagement party will be about $5,000 (inviting a max of 50 people). The wedding shower in the city I will move to, we will say my mother is hosting, but we will pay for it (we don’t want to give our parents bills) and it’ll be about $2,500 (it’s cheaper there and it’s being held with mostly my family and a bit of friends from there). Then we plan on holding one in the same city as the wedding will be so his family can attend one too as they will probably not make it to the engagement party.   The second shower, if someone steps up then we won’t pay for it, but if not we are budgeting about $3,000 for 40 – 50 people.
