Should the groom's mother be invited to my family's bridal shower?
My wedding will be almost three hours away from my hometown, since we are getting married where the groom is from (his parents own a wedding venue). My mother and grandmother are throwing me a bridal shower in June and inviting the just the women on my side of the family and my female friends to the shower. The groom's mother has offered to throw me a shower the month before as well, and that's fine. I was wondering however, should she also be extended an invitation to my family's bridal shower? Not sure what the protocol is here.
