shower etiquette

My FMIL mentioned awhile ago that she wanted to throw me a bridal shower. It was really sweet of her to offer but she hasn't really mentioned it ever since. Some of the girl relatives on my side want to throw a shower for me and asked me for a guest list, though I don't want to make my FMIL's side feel obligated to give me gifts if they are already planning one. It seems weird to ask "are you still throwing me a shower?" so I'm trying to think of good ways to tiptoe around this. Any suggestions?

Wow you're so lucky to have so many people offering to throw you a shower =). If your FMIL hasn't mentioned in for awhile then I'm guessing something is up. I would go ahead and invite her to your shower and not expect her to throw one of her own. Your (or your friend's) invitation to the shower will prompt her to tell you if she's doing one also.

that is nice. Maybe you can approach her and just flat out ask if she was planning on throwing you a bridal shower still. Or have the relatives that are planning it ask her and maybe they want to team up? It might be hurtful if your relatives plan one when she might have had something in mind.
