    Save yourself the headache and don’t list anyone as the host to spare everyone’s feelings? Is that possible?

    I’ve never actually seen a bridal shower invite listing who was hosting it for the bride (And I’ve been to 20+) but that could just be where I’m from.

    I agree with PP.  Don’t list a host.  Instead “you are invited to a bridal shower celebrating ‘Brides Name'”

    I suggest both of them be listed as hosts. You can never be too kind when it comes to sharing credit for anything. If Future Mother-In-Law offers to share in the costs, your Mom can just politely decline saying that Future Mother-In-Law has already done her share.

    Both or none at all.

    Let them decide, and let them print and issue the invitations. You should not be involved in planning your own gift-receiving event. Actually, I am old-fashioned enough that I don’t think your mother should be involved in planning your gift-receiving event either, and your future mother-in-law should do so only if it is a “Our side meet-the-bride” shower. But apparently that ship has sailed.
