Shower Etiquette

If I am having an adult only wedding & reception, should I have an adult only shower also or should I expect that my shower attendees will bring their children and is that ok? How should I handle the shower invitations?

    The host should address the invitations to only the adults. If someone brings their children, then they were the rude ones.

    only wedding guests should be invited to pre-wedding parties; that goes for kids too.  And ditto Kristan - you shouldn't really have anything to do with the shower beyond providing a guest list when asked.

    I have never been to a wedding shower or bridal shower where someone brought kids.  The shower isn't a kids' party.

    I always went to family bridal showers growing up.  Probably three or four total, not a whole lot, but none the less I was included.  It was written on the invites specifically alongside my moms name.  So, for my shower that's what I did.  I wrote out my aunt or friends name, and included any daughters that they may have too.  Plus, I am having flower girls who I wouldn't not want to include.  They are the youngest of the children who will be in attendance, (6 and 4).  All of the other kids who are coming are 10 and up, and it's probably a total of 4-5 extra people.
