Well, your Future Mother-In-Law is throwing the shower, right? That’s her business to deal with the awkwardness. If she’s so irritated that she can’t invite the whole world, she should have helped pay for them. We’re paying for our own, too, and my Future Mother-In-Law is throwing me a shower and I have no idea whos coming, honestly. We’ll see. If anybody asks me about the invite (which, seriously, who does that?), then I"ll just have to say that we’re paying for it ourselves and we’re having a small affair due to the size of the venue. It’s ok to admit you’re paying for it yourselves and are having a small affair. Extended family? Not necessarily vital if you can’t afford it! Good luck, try not to worry too much. But I’m with ya, I’d think it would be rude to have people come to the shower but nto the wedding. Hopeully most people will understand though!
