I’ve been to several showers recently where the groom comes to open gifts.  I think it’s nice.  My FI is planning on coming at the end for a few minutes to say hello and thanks.

mine is also coming at the end. maybe in time for gifts as well, definitely in time to thank people for coming and help load stuff in the cars 🙂

I would think your FI only needs to be there either at the beginning or come by at the end to meet and thank people and help transport gifts.  I honestly wouldnt put him though staying through the whole shower if its no co-ed.  My FI didnt come by the shower, no one missed him and he was happy not to have to come 🙂

mine was at a restaurant. my dad wanted to eat there too so he got a table in the main room for some guys (some friends, my husband, my fil and bil) and the girls had a private room. the boys ended up coming into our room to see what was going on the whole time, which i was fine with. we already discusssed that when we have a baby shower it’s going to be coed.

It’s normal for the FIs in my family to go to the bridal shower to greet everyone and open gifts.  I’m sure they feel a little out of place with all the women, but the gifts are for them too!

I have never been to a bridal shower where a man attended.  Usually those events are for women it seems.
