I’d be disappointed. Sure, he’s been married before, but not to you! This is a new beginning and I don’t quite understand why they wouldn’t give you a gift just because they’ve been through this before…

In your situation I’d definitely have a bridal shower (every bride to be is entitled to a shower if it’s what they want) and I would extend the invitation to their side. If they come, then that’s fantastic but if they decline at least you offered them to be involved and I suppose you’d just have to understand that they view this situation different than you do.

@Jenniferashlee:  As far as I know the shower is more for the bride anyway. yes there are a lot of house and home gifts but all ladies attend. i would think invite his side and not be offended if they choose not to show

Wait and see if his family offers to plan a shower for you. Otherwise, whoever offers to plan your shower on your side of the family can add your fiance’s family to the guest list.
