    Are you sure they wouldn’t want to attend?  I would drop them an email or call them to ask.  Something like:  hey, we are putting together the guest list for my shower and while I don’t expect you to travel to be there, I didn’t want you to think you were left out.  Would you like an invitation?

    I’m only inviting family members that are OOT- I wouldn’t worry about someone feeling left out about the shower.

    My mom is working the guest list for my shower, and I am upset on this point.  I think its rude to exclude people from the list just because they are out of the area – I’m in the “Thought Counts” camp, she is in the “Only those who will make it” camp.

    If you are positive they won’t make it, I wouldn’t invite them.
