I did this to a small handful of guests – and expressly said:  I’d love for you to be at this other shower I’m having, but PLEASE do not bring a gift (or, another gift – just come for the fun!).

ETA:  another way to word it would be to ask them if they’d like to attend the shower.  Not everyone loves going to showers…

I’ve been invited to both a lingerie shower and a bridal shower for the same person. I know when I get engaged, I will be thrown both, because it is kind of customary in my group of friends. I don’t see a problem with inviting your friends to both!

I definitely think you can invite them but I would stress that its about celebrating and would insist they did not bring a gift.

I would! Just make sure you let them know that you in no way expect or need 2 gifts, you just want them to come be a part of everything

@TogetherThroughLife:  I have my closets friends being invited to 2 showers, just because it works that way. but they all know I do not expect any gifts, let alone at both of them.

I’m planning my mom’s shower and her FH’s side is planning one as well. Her sisters will be duplicate guests at both but my mom told them no gifts.

I think it’s fine to invite them to two showers, just make it clear you’re not expecting another gift from them, you just want them to be there.

I think it’s fine but I’d probably stress that they don’t need to bring gifts to both.  Maybe bring a gift to one if they want, but I’d stress they don’t have to bring gifts to both of them.  I wouldn’t want someone to feel forced to bring me a nice household item and them a nice lingerie item a few weeks later.  That could be too much.
