In my family, we invite every woman who is invited to the wedding, regardless of their rsvp status.  A lot of times, the shower is held before the rsvps are all in anyway.  We’re pretty inclusive, and like to include everyone, even if it means having less extravagence in order to invite them all.  I always thought you made special care to NOT invite those who weren’t invited to the wedding?  Unless it’s a shower thrown at work by colleagues.

The rule is you invite people to the shower that are invited to the wedding.  It is considered rude to invite someone to your shower but not your wedding.  It doesn’t matter if they RSVP yes or no to the wedding.

I would say you invite people only if they were invited to the wedding, regardless of whether or not rsvp yes to the wedding.  But generally, you shouldn’t invite people who aren’t invited to the wedding.

Your momma is confused – itd be considered very rude to invite people to the shower and not invite them to the wedding. That’s like “your good enough to give me a gift, but not good enough to join us in the festivities”.

You usually invite all the women that you actually invited to the wedding, whether thy are attending or not.
