I will make this as short as possible. After much drama I insisted we have 2 seperate showers because MIL was bring ridiculous. My mom's shower is doen & went great. MIL's is next month, I am making the invites, which she wants out now, whatever. She just called that she wants me close family friends (who I call Aunt & Grandma`they took my mom in when she was a single mom) to attend her shower as well. She loves these people, everyone does.
The thing is they not only came to my other shower but helped A LOT, they made food, bought flowers, & got us very generous gifts. They also own a photography studio & took beautiful photos for me (at no charge). I told MIL they may be busy, with it being weddign season & she had a little fit saying it wasn't fair that I had photos from the other shower & not hers.
I talked to DH he agrees it would be rude to ask them to come to another shower. My mom (who is the ever peace keeper) said we could invite them & insist we want them to enjoy the day with us, no gifts, no help (its catered & friends are decorating) knowing they would take photos, they always do. WWYD? Other then hire a hit man for MIL?
