I would only invite those family members and friends that are invited to the wedding. Friends and co-workers can always be added later, once you see what kind of response you get.

Are the cousins not being invited to the wedding? If that’s the case, I wouldn’t invite them to the shower.

I agree, stick to those invited to the wedding. Are your FMIL’s co-workers coming to the wedding? If not, it sounds like she wants to have a party and you getting married is the theme. If she wants to have a party celebrating her son getting married I suggest taking “shower” out of the title, and invite anyone she wants…. And I don’t think her having a party like that is bad or wrong, but it really isn’t a shower, maybe a late engagement party. It sounds like she is excited about the wedding. But if it really is a shower, only people invited to the wedding should be invited. I wouldn’t make a B list either, people talk about this and if I knew I got an invite a month after someone else I would be offended.
