    I wouldn’t invite the same people to both showers except the bridal party and your parents (as long as they know you don’t need 2 gifts).

    I’m not sure what the rule is, but I only invited the moms and the bridesmaids to both showers (one in the midwest where we live now and where my FH is from, one in my home state). I also told the BMs and my Future Mother-In-Law that there is NO expectation that they attend both showers. My mom, of course, is mandatory at both. 🙂

    i agree with MissAsB.  and i’m also fairly certain that i’ve read that in an etiquette book too.  not that they are the end all, be all.

    My mom, his mom, and his two sisters (my bridesmaids) were at all three showers. I felt a bit bad that they had to do all three, but I also realized they’d be more hurt not to attend. If you’re not close to your siblings/his siblings, don’t double invite, but try to think about it from their view – would they want to be there?
