i would find out how she felt about it but if she is having a regular wedding again then i would give her the whole experience again.

Idk. I've never been in a wedding party! Let alone the 2nd time around. I didn't know if there were expectations...? Differences?

IMO, bachelorette yes, shower no. Shower is for first time brides moving out of their parents' home to a place of their own. They are "showered" in gifts to get their new place started. I don't think it's appropriate for a second marriage.
But bachelorette, yup! That's a fun night out with the girls!! :)

I think I agree with this answer. Also kinda depends on how old they are - how many kids they have (together and seperate) and what the new in laws might like for their adult children.

Yes! I hope I get a shower for my second wedding. Bachelorette, maybe find out what she wants? I know I want a really low key night out with just my closest friends - way more subdued than my first.
