You shouldn’t invite them I they aren’t also invited to the wedding.

Oh ok then. If you’re actually good friends with them, then sure you can invite them. But if they’re just coworker level acquaintances then I wouldn’t.

@beth2507:  Stay out of it.

If the ladies at work want to give you a shower, they will arrange it. For that matter, if your social friends want to give you a shower, they will arrange that — you should not arrange, nor even facilitate the arrangements of, any event that has the primary purpose of providing you with Stuff.

You can arrange all the teas or dessert-parties you like for the fun of spending time with family and friends, and even — within appropriate limits — with business colleagues. But as soon as it is called a “shower” it is about presents, and being involved in it makes you appear avaricious.

@aspasia475:  It is acceptable for the bride to supply the host of the shower with her guest list. 

 

@beth2507:  In the past, when coworkers were invited to the wedding did they also go to the family/friends shower? If not, then I would not invite them.
