I’m kind of old school in that I think the most important part of the wedding is the ceremony- not just the party.  So I’m always a little insulted to be excluded from the ceremony.

That said- I think it’s OK to invite people to the shower who are also invited to the reception.

I feel differently than rosy. I think it is very common these days for brides to have small ceremonies and then a big reception afterwards. Some even do destination weddings and come back for the reception. I wouldn’t see any problem with inviting them to the shower as long as they were invited to part of the wedding day festivities!

I think its your wedding- do what you want!! If you want people at your shower that you are not inviting to the ceremony that invite them.  They will be happy to be sharing the shower event with you.  Maybe try inclosing a little not in each invite for the people who are not invited to the ceremony stating that it is just for family or something along those lines…  they will understand
