I wanted this. I wanted FI to be there so that he could participate in the love and fun but my mom was set about no boys being there. πŸ™

I think bridal showers are torture and wouldn’t want to drag my FI into it πŸ™‚

I think its a great idea!!!  But I agree … my FI says its a great time for him and his guys to get together and have their own “Groom Shower” which they like to call “The Mens Den”  lol

I’ve been to several co-ed showers and they’re fantastic big parties. It’s great to have everyone celebrate together.

Of course, I’ve never gotten the whole “we must celebrate certain things only with our friends of the same gender” type mentality. I’d rather see everyone I love!

I think these are also called Jack and Jill parties? We’ll probably have one πŸ™‚

Ours was coed, but it was more like a  party than a typical shower…we didn’t play bridal shower games (we DID have a pinata…it was awesome!), or talk about sex nonstop or open lingere. We drank wine, ate tacos, opened gifts and just hung out having fun.

If your BM wants to do the traditional “shower” things, then I’d say don’t make it coed.  If she wants to do more of a party atmosphere, then coed would work nicely.

@Tswife4ever:  I honestly cannot imagine any guy being into a bridal shower.  Sorry!

we had a co-ed wedding shower (we didn’t call it a bridal shower) and it was a BLAST. it was just a big party at a wine bar…everyone had a blast πŸ™‚

i’m having another shower this weekend and it’s co-ed, even though my fiance can’t attend (it’s in another state).

basically the showers are about eating, drinking, and socializing with the guests. i wouldn’t have it any other way! πŸ™‚

I love co-ed showers, but I think it only works in certain situations. For example, if a typical shower in your area consists of giving the bride lingerie and really personal gifts, then it probably would be awkward.  In my family, showers are at a function hall and the couple gets gifts off of their registry (so at least the groom is there to help open these).  It’s more just like a regular party, not a “girly” thing, so the more the merrier!

We’re having a Jack and Jill shower.  And I’m extremely excited about it πŸ™‚
