I think the general rule is to not extend invitations for pre-wedding functions to people who aren’t invited to the wedding.  A possible exception would possibly be a group of co-workers who are throwing you a bridal luncheon or something.

@soupmachine:  No they shouldn’t be invited. I was invited to an acquaintance’s bachelorette party and wasn’t invited to the wedding (even though it was a large wedding). I accepted before I realized I wasn’t invted to the wedding and it was a bit awkward.

Echoing pp to say that it would not be polite to invite to one and not the other. I also agree about the exception.  A group of  co-workers can  host a shower  with no expectation of an invitation.
