I am having two showers.  I was born and raised in Vermont but am now living in Massachusetts – where Fiance is from – for the past 2.5 years.  I am having a shower ‘back home’ for all of my Vermont friends and family and having a shower in Mass for all of my Mass friends and family!  It totally makes sense and saves people from having to travel.  The only people I am inviting to both are my immediate family and bridesmaids.  Everyone else will be invited to the shower that they live closest to.  

 

I wouldn’t stress out about it too much – if your friends want to throw you a shower – I say go for it!

they definitely don’t have to be invited. if they want to throw you a shower, they can do so.

I had a shower in my home town in Upstate NY (14 hours from where I live now)  We did not invite any of FI’s family.  My Future Mother-In-Law was invited to my NC shower but no one else on FI’s side of the family.

Do two showers.  They will appreciate it more.

I agree, I am having 2 showers in to different states.  People are not invited to both showers, just the one that is closest to them.  My Maid/Matron of Honor is throwing one and my Future Mother-In-Law is throwing the other.

FI’s family and my family all live about 30 minutes apart, but I’m only inviting one family or the other to a shower.  We both have pretty large families, so a shower including all of them would get pretty overwhelming. 

I think you’re totally fine to have two showers.  That way at each shower you can keep the guest list smaller and it can be a more intimate affair.
