I think I would invite them, they are your friends.  But you could preface it with letting them know that you they are by no means required to come.

OK, so did Fi’s mom and dad go to your original e-party? I’m wondering if his mom, is trying to outdo someone here? I don’t know if it’s specifially your parents. Perhaps trying to outdo Fi’s dad, since they are divorced. (I must love him more, because I’m throwing this party for him.)

Is it possible to forgo this second party? I know your relationship is delicate, so maybe not. I would agree with you that it should be focused on her peole who were not at the other party. I don’t think your friends would have a problem missing a party with gaggles of people they never met. Really it comes across like simply a family party, but in celebration of you.

Is it possible to channel FMIL’s energy into throwing you a shower, in the future, instead?

Whatever you decide, I would pretty much let Fiance do the talking. Good luck.

let her control the list, this is for her, OR ask her how many of your friends can attend? I would say just your friends who are in your bridal party. thats it!
