If your mother feels strongly that her friends should be there, would she want to throw a second bridal shower for you? I agree with you- if there’s twelve guests, it should be the 12 closest or most involved people.

I think you were totally in the right.  Twelve people isn’t much and you probably have 12 close females in your life without your FMIL’s friends.  I think it was appropriate that you asked your mother…but if Future Mother-In-Law wanted all her friends to go then I think she should throw one for you herself.

i dont think she have any saying on who you invite for YOUR bridal shower. im with rebejane: if she wants she can throw you a second shower. 

keep you plans and tell her that your sorry but is only twelve people and you already choose.

It sounds like your Future Mother-In-Law wants to throw you a shower herself, so she can invite who she wants to invite. There’s no reason you should have included her when planning the guest list for a very limited shower like this. If it were your friends or family planning the shower and you could accommodate more people, then it would be appropriate to ask Future Mother-In-Law if had any additions to the guest list. I would tell Future Mother-In-Law you wish those people could be invited, but that it really isn’t up to you since your friend who is so generous as to throw you a shower can only accommodate 12 people.

My shower invitation list includes every woman who is invited to the wedding and lives within a two-hour drive of the shower venue. Still less than a dozen, in my case: it’s my closest friends, my mom and Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law and sister, and a couple of FMIL’s friends/coworkers.
