PennyLove5:  Showers hosted by groups of people outside your normal social circle often include those not invited to the wedding. These groups could include work colleagues, book clubs, church members etc.

I would have them extend an invitation to all your coworkers. I would also limit the guests to your co-workers. Friends and family can attend a different shower. Most work colleagues know that they are not going to be invited to everyone’s wedding and are happy to participate in a shower.

You should refrain from any other involvement.

PennyLove5:  Every work shower I’ve ever been to was open to the whole company, or if it was a small company, then the whole department. The organizers sent out a mass email to everyone and anyone who wanted to come did. There was no “guest list”. Work showers are the exception to the rule that people have to be invited to the wedding.

PennyLove5:  Where is the shower being held? I had one thrown for me at work but it was in our staff room, before school started (I’m a teacher). None of the people who attended were invited to the wedding. I don’t think that etiquette rules apply in this case.
