Don’t invite anyone to the shower who isn’t invted to the wedding. However, given that it is for people in their late 30s, how big of an issue would this be? How many guests would have someone they are dating and are serious enough about to bring to an intimate wedding shower, but isn’t serious enough to be invited to the wedding?

I think it’s totally fine.  A shower is typically a lot more casual than a wedding, so if people want to bring someone to hang out with at a co-ed shower, I don’t see an issue.  If anything I’d think these people would appreciate the option even for one event.

I wouldn’t invite anyone not invited to the wedding, and have never heard of plus ones to a shower

Only wedding guests should be invited to the shower… and moreover, only people the bride and groom are close to.

I think the Stock the Bar theme is super cute. Good luck!
