I had multiple showers but I did not invite the same guests to the showers. I think that it is weird to invite people twice as they feel like they need to give a gift twice. If you are inviting different guests then there is no reason why you shouldnt have two showers. Sometimes its easier to have two parties than to have one giant one.

Kacie209:  Nothing wrong with two showers since that is a choice made by the hosts (if they want to throw you a party), not the bride, but I don’t see any reason for any overlap invitees at all.

The posts we’re a twee confusing, but it sounded like an aunt needed a ride? Or something to that effect? If so, I would say, yes, of course your mom or MIL or whoever can attend and give that person a ride, but I would make sure the host specifies that they do not need to bring a second gift or attend both. Still I don’t see the need for several people to come to both showers? They can just come to whichever one they give the ride to, right? Not sure why it would be necessary for MIL, FSIL, Etc…to give up two diff weekends/days for the same event. Perhaps I am missing something…
