So, I vote for a small intimate shower, OR your mom host a pre-wedding party and not call it a shower, so people don't have the impression that they need to bring gifts.
I think I will end up having an intimate dinner/shower for the important women in my life who can't come to the wedding (and those who are) but not call it a shower.
The way I see it, people who want to get you a gift will get you one, shower or not.

In a perfect world, all those close to you would understand, but I understand your concern and am struggling with the same issue! Good luck!

Even though 75-100 women seem like alot my mom is really in no situation to be able to host an AHR for us (which would be at least 200 w/ guys), or else she would have. But both of our families are really big and there just happens to be alot of women that my mom feels should be invited (aunts, cousins, fam. friends). Some of them have already started asking her when the shower would be....which is why we are having such a problem.
I really don't want to offend anyone by inviting them or by not inviting them, so I guess it is hard to tell how people would take it.
I'll let you know what we decide, since the invitations have to go out this weekend.
