this seems like a situation that you should NOT be in the middle of. let them deal with it amongst themselves. personally, i’m a total control freak and i’d want to jump in to the middle of this too, but i learned from wedding planning that there was enough on my plate without worrying about other people’s interactions or the plans they were making themselves. it’s not your problem. you say your moh is outspoken–tell her to stick up for herself if she’s says she’s feeling excluded

Perhaps your Future Mother-In-Law is planning to invite people from her side of the family? Often this is done as a welcome to the bride and ensures that she has a chance to meet her new relatives before the wedding.

Many brides have more than one shower. Speaking as a guest, I would rather attend one of two or three smaller showers, than be a guest at a  shower with 75 women attending.

I would ask your Maid/Matron of Honor to give your Future Mother-In-Law a call and have a discussion. Your Maid/Matron of Honor could let your Future Mother-In-Law know that she was already planning your shower and wanted to compare guest lists etc

we had three showers– one thrown by my parents, one thrown by his parents, and one thrown by my BOH. the attendees did not overlap much, and everyone who threw one was really excited and happy to do so… it might be okay to let them figure it out.
