    I would ask your FI’s mom to invite them to her shower.

    Well, this is rather sticky. I’d talk to Future Mother-In-Law and see what she thinks (if she’s like mine she’ll be like OMG YES! They should definitely come! She’s a more the merrier kinda gal). Hopefully you and she have a good relationship and you won’t feel TOO awkward doing this – or, you could see if your mom and Future Mother-In-Law want to co-host your ‘family shower.’ I have a feeling that’s what my mom and Future Mother-In-Law will be doing so that women from both families can come. Just a thought!

    I tried to separate my guest list because I didn’t want too many people at one shower and I got lots of compliants from my family for doing this.  My Dad’s mom and sister were upset that they were invited to the FMIL’s shower and not the one that my mom’s friends/family were hosting.

    I would talk to your parents to see what they suggest doing.  You hate for there to be hurt feelings.

    i only invited local people to the shower my fmil is throwing (with the only exceptions being my mom and out of town bridesmaids). i don’t think other out of towners, even family, would feel slighted if they weren’t invited, and i think it’s too much to ask for them to come in more than once. but, that’s just my situation.

    I’m only inviting female relatives I’m actually close to.  Are you close to these aunts?  I would ask your Future Mother-In-Law if they can go to that shower.
