    Meh. let them do what they want and just be happy for them. This is obviously a big deal to them, so just go along with it

    I think it is just for everyone else.  I always thought that is how those things would go until I was reading an idea to have the tech write the sex down and pass it to the baker so even you (the parent) would be surprised.

    I’m confused. Who would make the cake if the couple didn’t know the gender? Every gender reveal I’ve heard of involves the couple knowing & the friends/family finding out. I don’t see how it could work logistically any other way.

    I always thought the gender reveal was for everyone else, not the parents…

    Not weird but unecessary perhaps.

    My BIL and SIL had a gender reveal party but they themselves didn’t know the gender either. They were just as antsy to find out as the rest of us which made it fun. They just invited close family so there were max 15 of us.

    Yep, I always thought the reveal party was for other folks, not the parents. Who would tell the baker what color to make the cake otherwise?

    My friend had one, and she made the cake herself, so she knew ahead of time.  It was still fun because the grandparents didn’t know.

    I know a lot of people who find out the gender beforehand (like, at a gender reveal photoshoot) and then have a party where they reveal it to family and close friends. At least, that’s how my friends around here seem to be doing it. 🙂

    I think the whole concept of gender reveal parties is weird. I think its cute to do at a shower or something, but a party just for the reveal pretty unncessary, in my opinion.

    I also always thought the fun in this was them telling everyone else what the gender is. That’s probably the way I’d do it because I’m not sure I would want to find out at the same time as a whole crowd of people — I’d rather my husband and I find out privately and then share with our families in a fun way.

    I do not find this weird at all. I did not have one, but I am thinking for the next one I might keep it a secret and then reveal it at the shower somehow.

    IMO it’s kind of weird. Who other than the couple and their immediate family really cares enough about the gender to care about a dramatic reveal?
