My bff (who is throwing my shower) is coming over on Sunday to talk about the shower and so that I can give her my guest list. My bridal shower wasn't all that long ago, so I'm thinking the guest list will be very similar. However, my mom has told me she would be fine with less of her friends being invited this time around since she knows I want a more intimate shower with just my closest friends and family.
That being said, I'm thinking about not inviting several members of DH's extended family. They are his 3rd cousins, and we're not close with them. They didn't attend (or even RSVP for) my bridal shower. Would it be ok to not invite them to the baby shower? I don't want to upset my MIL (she wouldn't make a big deal about it, but she would definitely ask me about it) or cause hurt feelings. I just want a nice, small baby shower brunch and am trying to reign in the guest list.
Thanks in advance for your help
