What about doing the shower 1 month before your destination wedding and therefore 7 months before your in-town reception.  I agree its weird to have a shower when your already married, but if there are no better options then…..why not go for it.

It is usually considered bad etiquette to invite people to a shower that are not invited to the wedding. But it isn’t bad etiquette if those shower invitees are made aware ahead of time (usually by the one hosting the shower) that you are having a small wedding and therefore cannot invite everyone. And since you plan on inviting these shower guests to your at-home reception at a later date, then I think you’ll be okay. As long as your mom explains the situation to them, you won’t be breaking any etiquette rules by inviting people to your shower that are invited only to your at home reception. So go ahead and plan your shower for a month before the wedding. I think people will understand.
