Yes, you have to invite your Future Mother-In-Law. Actually, you should really ask her who of her family and friends she’d like to invite, too. I’m sure they want the opportunity to give gifts for your FI’s home. The only exception to this would be if she is planning on hosting a separate shower.

YES, invite her. What excuse would you have not to? And how would it look? Definitely, definitely invite her. If she doesn’t come, well that’s fine, but she needs an invite.

Yes and other ladies from your Fiance family who are close to him like aunts grandmas sisters and close friends of the family. if you ask your fiancé I’m sure he knows who from his side should be invited

I would say hell no! Don’t invite anyone who doesn’t make you happy. It’s not about her.

moonchild:  The only reason I WOULDN’T invite her is if she lived substantially further away from you than the other ladies. If she were in another state, for exampe, and would need to fly to be there. In that case I can see not inviting her. Otherwise, yeah, I think she needs to be invited. Sorry Bee, that kind of sucks a little bit for you.

At least you guys are just different people (same with my MIL) and not at war with each other like some others!

I don’t get along with my Future Mother-In-Law either, but if I were having a shower, I would definitely invite her. Sorry. 🙂

Speaking as someone who is very much an introvert and as such has trouble “getting to know” people, it could be an icebreaker between the two of you.  The attention will be on you, not her, and she may well feel more at ease and a bit more able to open up to you the next time it’s just the two of you.
