@WNCbride2011:  Please don’t invite people to the shower that you aren’t inviting to the wedding.  Also, do you have any other friends (invited guests) or family that you would like to be there?

ask the person who is throwing the shower about how many people she would expect. After that, look at your wedding guest list and narrow it down from there.

Only close family and friends. Do your FI’s Mom & StepMom get along? I agree with not inviting those not invited to your wedding.

I am inviting my Mom, my Future Mother-In-Law, aunts and female cousins from both families, and friends that live locally in town.

If his mom and stepmom get along then invite them both. Have a conversation with your fiance about this. He may have an opinion.

Definitely don’t invite anyone to the shower who cannot be invited to the wedding. The person will be offended!

@WNCbride2011: If these women really want to get you something, they will.  I would still not invite them to the shower.

@WNCbride2011:  It’s actually traditionally not acceptable for your own family to host the shower.  How many people is your Maid/Matron of Honor Mom willing to host?  Take a cue from that and invite your family and closest friends.  And only those people in the wedding.
