It is usually not ok to only invite people to your bridal shower and not to the wedding.  However, if you are having a birdal shower with co workers who know they are not invited to the wedding, that might be ok.  Btw long beach love!  I also live in LB but I will be getting married in norcal

i think it’s a little rude to invite someone to the shower, but not to the wedding. it’s kinda like saying, “i want you to buy me a gift, but you’re not important enough for the main event.” i know if it was me, if i got an shower invitation i would expect a wedding invitation also.

maybe you could have a celebration or something that is the same feel of a bridal shower, but isn’t actually a shower and you could invite expand your guest list to include those that aren’t invited to the wedding.

You should only invite people to bridal shower if they are invited to the wedding. The reason for this is that the bridal shower is a gift-centric party and if you someone only invite to the shower, it can feel like you’re saying “You are good enough to buy me presents but not come celebrate my wedding”.

You can host a party with guests not invited to the wedding, but it shouldn’t focus or (or expect) gifts and you shouldn’t call it a shower.

Its best to only invite people who are invited to the wedding.
