uninvited wedding shower

Some girls that work with my fiance want to throw us a wedding shower, but we had decided not to invite them to the wedding. Should we decline the shower, and if so, how? Or should we just invite them to the wedding?

    Coworkers tend to be that one exception to the shower rule of only inviting wedding guests to a shower.  I think if they're gracious enough to want to do it, I would go for it.  I've had to turn one down and hurt feelings emerged.

    If they already know they aren't invited and are still wanting to throw the shower- there is no reason to turn it down.

    If they don't know they aren't invited then you have 2 options:
    1) Politely turn them down- I don't know how to go about this.
    2) Invite them.

    My experience is that work people throw showers with no expectation of an invite.  They understand you can't invite everyone you know and still want to be a part of it.  It's also a legitimate excuse at many offices to stop working for a couple of hours and sit around and talk and eat.  :)
