    The way I have usually seen it done is the men folk show up near the end (including the fiance) to much applause… the boys are basically there to help lift, carry and haul away the loot. I wouldn’t have them actually *there* during the bulk of the party. Girl time only!!! 😉

    It really depends I think. I had no men at mine. I would just think it would be extremely boring to them….

    I only had women at mine. My husband showed up at the end, gave me flowers and helped with the transporting of gifts. I’m kind of old fashioned in that way. I would prefer only women Because men don’t really ‘get’ showers like women do. But if you want men at your shower, do it! It’s becoming more and more popular

    I went to a shower with men and women. It was so much fun. It was an afternoon shower with lots of snacks. They had a table set up with a ton of crayola markers and had us write advice for them in a book and put a poloroid picture of us on the page with our advice. They also had an adult pinata which was lots of fun. They did the gift opening and then we played catch phrase. There were about 25 people there.

    It was absolutely the most fun shower I have ever been to, but it is also the only shower I have ever been to so I don’t know about only ladies.

    My fiance came to ours because we’re having our wedding in Hawaii (where we live) and a lot of my family on the mainland can’t make it. So we went to my hometown for a shower. Under different circumstances, I would not have had him come.

    I went to a “couple’s” shower once and it was kind of awkward. Let’s all be honest, most of the presents that you get from a shower are not really things that men get really excited about. Don’t get me wrong, my fiance appreciates the gifts and he will use them just like I will, but he’s just not interested in oohing and ahhing over them at a shower. I think they should be a fun occasion for ladies…just my two cents!
