How about calling it a coed party instead. When you say couples, some people prob. won’t come if they are not in a relationship. Also, try to make it gender neutral. I am sure that if some of the gm come the other guys will think it is cool too.

I went to one that was called an “engagement shower” once….not so different from “engagement party,” I guess, but made clear it was for both bride and groom.

Yeah, we want one too as one of my showers. I am thinking his and her. Everyone brings two gifts that are related..one for you and one for him. Like his and her bath robes, etc. I have also seen one where you give each guest a particular room and they bring gifts for that specific space.

You can have a bridal/power shower. A bridal shower for wedding stuff and a power shower for power tools, home improvement stuff.

I think your FI might be pleasantly surprised.  Maybe there can be a planned activity for the boys, like watching a sporting event on tv or a video game tournament?  I don’t know.  Men always have a fear of the unknown, particularly when it is associated with frilly girly type activities 🙂
