Shower Invites - Coworkers

I plan on inviting 2 people to our wedding however I'm not sure if I should invite them to the shower. One is my boss and another is a lady I have befriended of the years. Neither of them are close to each other. Also, through the years I know that my boss is not a fan of showers in general.

Basically, I don't want them to come out of obligation but I definitely don't want them to feel left out.

Would it be appropriate to invite them to the wedding only?

    Hmm...i'm not sure what the proper etiquette is for shower invites. I gave my mom and sister (moh) a list of my friends and I know my mom has added to it, but it's mostly just close friends and family.

    I only just started my job in September here in Chicago, and I work with nothing but a bunch of DUDES, so I don't have that problem.

    I'm curious to see the replies to this one.

    By no means do I have an expert opinion, but I would say that it's ok not to invite them to the shower, especially if you know your boss doesn't like showers. I always thought showers were more for family and close friends.

    I agree with the pp...I think showers are only for close friends and family members. I think it's ok to not invite them to the shower.

    Yeah, showers are for close friends and family- they may think it's tacky if they are invited.
