I think that the real issue is that your god-mother wants her there and has threatened not to officiate. I would just invite her. It’s not a good idea to have a power-struggle over whether you’re ‘right’ and she’s overstepping boundaries. It’s not worth it, and you seem to like your god-mother and she IS officiating, so give her a little extra consideration.
And PS, if you aren’t paying this daughter for her services, then it’s not officially a professional relationship. It’s a little dick to say that she’ll get to build up her portfolio by co-hosting your shower–true, but let’s not pretend that you aren’t also benefitting from this scenario. And on that note, if you’re also not paying your god-mother for officiating, AND/OR your god-mother is single, then I think that her asking you to invite her daughter is not an indecent request at all.
