I think it’s OK, maybe just something small with those family members that will be invited to the wedding.

I don’t think its unacceptable at all.  I’d suggest to your family (the ones throwing it) that they make sure the guests know that the gift does not need to be expensive.  And I wouldn’t register.  Let them get you something from their heart since you didn’t plan on asking for anything anyway.  A shower is a good idea for those people that won’t be able to attend your wedding, it still gives them to chance to celebrate with you.

I think it’s totally fine.  Just make sure the guests are invited to the wedding too.  I had two (smallish) showers for my Destination Wedding.  I enjoy going to showers when I won’t be able to make it to the wedding because it gives me a chance to feel like I was still a part of the wedding festitivies.
