The only rule is not to where white to the wedding.  Wearing white to a bridal shower is okay, but I guess a little odd as not to many people have a full white outfit.

I don’t think there is any rule for bridal showers and white. I personally just don’t wear white or the wedding colors to any wedding events if I’m not in it or it’s not my wedding.

Personally I wouldn’t wear white to the shower.  It isn’t against ettiquette or anything and it wouldn’t bother me if someone wore white to my shower, but I wouldn’t do it just to avoid possibly stepping on the brides toes.

Ettiquette for bridal showers

1. Don’t throw your own bridal shower, someone else has to throw it for you.

2. Guest wear what they like that is appropriate for the theme and formality of the shower (tea party theme, black & white theme, wear pink theme) assuming there is a theme.

3. Themes aren’t neccessary, but they are fun

4. Write your thank you notes. Have a bridesmaid writing down who gave you want for later so you remember and send them out after the shower.

It wouldn’t bother me at all but I personally wouldn’t wear white as a guest just in case.
