I don’t believe so.   My mom is inviting many of her friends to the shower she’s throwing me but we are having a small wedding and haven’t invited all of them.  I think that she’s explained to them that we’re having a small wedding (and paying for it ourselves) and we wish we could invite everyone but it’s not feasible.

I would be fine with being invited to a co-worker shower and not being invited to the wedding.

Work showers are not the same as family showers.  No one there will expect you to invite them to your wedding.  This is just a matter of coworkers wanting to celebrate with you.  My husbands work threw us a shower and I had never met any of them!  It was a lot of fun and I got to meet his coworkers.  They all new we would be having a small wedding, so they knew before throwing it that we would not be inviting them.

My mom has friends attending a shower, but I don’t know them well, so they won’t be on the invite list.  I don’t believe any of them expect to be, and I’m flattered that they want to be part of a shower.  I agree with the other posters, I don’t think work showers are the same as other showers, and you aren’t required to invite your co-workers.  Regardless of whether or not you invite them, make sure you send them thank yous and let them know how much you appreciate their generousity.
