  Bridal Shower Basics
Remember that the bridal shower is usually the last chance for the bride to spend an extended amount of time with friends before the marriage, and it is also a warm, welcome, and relaxing day in the middle of a very busy transition time.
While the origins are lost in legend, bridal showers have long been an opportunity for friends and community members who are not within the couple's family to demonstrate their emotional and practical support for the new household with gifts of household and other tangible goods.
Since showers are meant to support the launch of a new household, guests can be reasonably asked to cover their own meal costs if this is clearly stated in the invitation and if the restaurant has been chosen with some consideration for expense.

 Bridal shower - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the United States bridal showers started in urban areas in the 1890s, mainly among the upper middle classes.
Sociologists like Beth Montemurro note that the ritual of the bridal shower "socializes women into the hyper-feminized traditional wife role", with its emphasis on the future role of the bride-to-be as family cook, homemaker and sexual partner.
An etiquette guide from the 1920s suggested showers should be "purely spontaneous and informal", with guests arriving unannounced at the bride-to-be's home, while a planning guide from the 1950s suggests more complex themes and games.

 Bridal Shower Etiquette
Ideally, the bridal shower would be held 1-2 months before the wedding, but there is nothing wrong with it being held more in advance, provided that the bride can attend.
Other than that, the bride and hostess should work together to come up with the guest list for the bridal shower.  Numbers should be kept within the hostess' budget (brides, be respectful of their wishes!) and hostess' you should clearly set this limit from the beginning.
Really there is no bridal shower etiquette rule on this.  The one exception I would make is that you should never ask people to pay for their meal at a shower.  So, if it is not in your budget to have the shower at a restaurant, no matter what the bride prefers, don't!
