Long time lurker, first time poster.
My SIL will be hosting my shower in March and I'm curious about whether or not to invite one particular guest. My CIL (cousin in law) is due this month, she lives 2000 miles away but had a shower here in my town since all of her family is here. I attended. I want to invite her to my shower, but she'll be a new mom and she lives 2000 miles away. I don't actually expect her to come, and I don't want it to seem like I'm only inviting her because I expect a gift from her.
Opinions about how I should handle?
