    If your MILs friend offered for them to come, it might be because that part of the family/their friends would like to meet your bridal party? I would tell your girls that of course they are invited because they are so important to you, but definitely stress NO gifts for the second, and also let them know you wouldn’t be hurt or upset if travel wise it is too much for them.

    I mean…. I’d love to go to two showers because I like socializing and parties and weddings 😛

    Bridesmaids get invited to all your affairs but not all have to be invited to the same parties. Like if one Bridesmaid or Best Man is a family member she gets invited to family stuff. Friends get invited to more friend parties. I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man twice & both times the brides did this & it made sense. 

    You could also invite them to all affairs. They don’t have to always accept & it’s likely, due to their own schedules, they can’t make them all anyway.
