So originally my sister was planning on throwing a shower for me. My mother in law is very pushy to say the least so my husband and I asked her in the early planning stages whether she minded my sister throwing the shower or if she wanted to throw her own. My MIL said it was fine that my sister threw it because she doesn't have a lot of extra money to be hosting a shower anyways. So we had the whole guest list planned and my sister already sent out invitations a few weeks ago. Now I was just waiting for my MIL to say something about it, she always does. She called my husband saying how we missed a bunch of people that we needed to invite from our old church (her friends not really mine or my husband's). My husband put his foot down because she had a list of an extra like 25 people. My sister is renting out a community center, renting linens, and making it really nice so I definitely don't want to add more people to the list to add to the expense. Anyways, long story short my MIL now decided she wants to throw her OWN shower for us. I really DO NOT like the idea but I'd rather her do her own shower then keep hassling me and my sister to add more people to the original guest list. I've already fought my MIL on so many things and it does no good, I'd rather her just do her lame shower then argue about it.
Sorry I know this is long, but basically she's decided to do her own shower but what really frustrates me is that now she wants to do it on Sunday afternoon when my sister's shower is Saturday (the day before)! My sister is kind of upset about the whole thing. She feels like my MIL is going to invite some of the same people and my sister is going to come off looking rude for not inviting EVERYONE. I don't like the idea of doing it the same weekend. It just seems tacky, like we couldn't fit them all at one shower! But my husband doesn't like the idea of having to spend two different weekends at baby showers (btw, both will be out of town) I don't know, any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
