Our family lives about 2-3 hours away from each other since we met in college. We currently live in NC which is 4 states away from where the wedding is going to take place. My FMIL decided she'd like to host a bridal shower for me in their home town because most of his family wouldn't come to my shower in my home town. I agreed to having two. Here's my issue... I don't know anyone on his side other than two aunts, his brother, grandma, and his dad. Because of the two showers, I am going to feel really out of place since no one will be of my side (planning to invite mom, sis in law and bridesmaids though). I was wondering if there is a way to have my fiance go to the shower that his mom is throwing that way I at least have him there. Plus, it's his family and he never gets to see them. Do people do couples showers? Or should I just ask for an engagement party? Or suck it up and be shy around his family. Also, if we have an engagement party, should I invite his relatives to my other shower? My hometown one is before his though, so it would still be weird.
