Can guests be invited to the bridal shower and not the wedding?

No, the bridal shower should be a gathering of those closest to the bride, because by nature it is a gift-giving event. If someone is close enough to be invited to the shower, they should be invited to the wedding.

There is one exception to this rule. If your co-workers decide to give you a workplace shower, with the entire office invited, you are not expected to invite everyone in your office to your wedding.
