I don’t have this kind of situation yet, but I am sure I will when the time comes for my shower and wedding.  Sorry you’re going through this =/

can you have a second shower, or maybe even just a brunch that you can invite them to? maybe if you politely explained that you thought that they would be uncomfortable at the shower, and then invited them to dinner or maybe to a special wedding related event like cake tasting or something like that?

Good luck!

@marylandgirl: Can you just invite them late, and explain why you didn’t initially? If it wouldn’t cause a scene, I would invite them both anyway — uncomfortable or not.

Ugh – so sorry you’re dealing with this! Maybe take the ladies out for drinks as a fun “non-shower”. Honestly, my bridal shower was the worst, most stressful part of the wedding. Hope things get better for your wedding day!

As the bride, it is generally not your role to do the inviting. A shower is thrown for you by someone else. That “someone else” is responsible for deciding who to invite (or not). So my advice is to stay out of it and let the shower host do the explaining.
