    @SillyStacey:  As I understand it, the purpose is to celebrate the bride and shower her with gifts.  It is poor etiquette to invite people to the bridal shower if they are not invited to the wedding.  The BMs often help throw/plan the shower(s), so they usually attend.  I also think it’s odd to separate by age, but I’ve heard of worse things.
