I was a bridesmaid for a friend who had something llke 8 showers.  She invited the wedding party to all of the events, but told us we didn’t need to attend all and/or bring presents to all.  She just really wanted her friends around and was that type of person.

I’d talk to your aunts about who they envision the shower is for and if there were certain people they were expecting to be there.  I’d assume they’d want their family members there as well as your close friends.  You could also get some direction from them if they wanted to meet FI’s side (maybe they see this as a great way to bond with his family, etc.)  but, it’s possible they just want to celebrate with you!

@oracle:  I agree!

As far as who to invite. Make sure everyone you want to attend a shower is invited to atleast one of them. The wedding party is supposed to be invited to all wedding events and in the case of mutiple showers you can tell them that they only need to bring one gift and not one to each event. I hope this helps.

You could always let them decide the guest list as they are hosting.
