I don’t think you should accept a shower given by people you cannot invite to the wedding.  I would say thank you, but decline.

Since its 8hrs away, kindly tell his family that you will bring some members of your family to the shower.  Also I would have Fiance setup a meet and greet before the wedding.

They probably just want to make you feel welcome to the family … however if they aren’t invited to the wedding and you don’t feel comfortable going then just politely decline.

Do you think they already know they will not be invited to the wedding? There’s a big difference between throwing  you a shower, thinking they will be invited to the wedding vs. throwing you a shower because they know they will NOT be invited to the wedding, and they want to get to know you.

Just take this as a opportunity to meet everyone that you might not have the chance to otherwise. Just be the classiest you you can be and dont do anything you arent comfertalbe doing. Don’t give them a reason to dislike you. Also, I would make sure they know they are not coming to the wedding.

I agree with PP that said to bring along a few of your family members.

Let them know its going to be a small intimate wedding and you won’t be able to invite everyone, so you would feel uncomfortable for them to throw a shower for you, but you can’t wait to meet them some other time.

My Mom said the same thing to my extended family when they wanted to throw a shower for me but we weren’t able to invite them all. No ones feelings got hurt and I didnt have to feel bad about getting gifts from people who we werent able to invite to the wedding.
