I have 4 amazing hostesses throwing me a baby shower, and they've started asking for the list of people to invite. I'm a FTM, so I'm not really sure what is the "proper thing" to do in regards to who to invite to a baby shower.
Long story short, I'm not very close with my mother's side of the family. When I got married, I mailed all of them wedding invitations, but only heard from a few (there's a whole lot of them). I know none of them would actually attend my baby shower (they all live out of state anyways), so I'm confused on if I should even bother sending them an invite? In all honesty, they probably wouldn't even recognize who the shower is for considering they probably don't know my married last name...
So, my question is: Do I invite my female family members (grandmother, aunts, cousins) from my mother's side regardless if I think they'd show or not?
Re: Confused on who to invite?
I probably would not, if they don't even know your married name.

I probably should've mentioned it, but my mom passed away several years ago.
Even though I'm sure none would show, I don't want to appear rude for not inviting them... It's almost like a lose-lose situation.
