    I went to a bridal shower where the man was there the entire time… personally I am not a fan of it but in your situation I think it would be acceptable.  However, are you inviting your male extended family then also? becuase if not its a little silly as he will only be meeting the females.  Maybe you could ask a family memeber living on the east coast to host a small cook out type dinner nothing big just a little get together.

    My husband was at my bridal shower the whole time, because otherwise he would have been sitting at my parents’ house by himself all day.  I loved having him there with me.  Smile

    I’ve been to showers before where the groom was there at the end to say Thank you and help clean up, but they never stay for the whole thing.

    I wouldn’t have my Fiance there for the whole thing because it would just make him feel so uncomfortable being the only male there lol.

    I personally think there is nothing wrong with the groom staying for the whole thing if he wants to. It depends on his comfort level. Many guys just don’t want to be apart of it and will say it’s just a girl thing. But if your Fiance is comfortable and wants to take part, there should be no reason he can’t.

    You could always have everyone meet at a planned BBQ when your in town, or even the rehersal dinner.

    personally, we are having a “wedding shower”….I’ve been to these before and they are great….it’s EVERYONE invited (men and women)….generally it’s just a fun time to chat, eat, open gifts, etc….you can include games too….I definitely like these better than bridal showers with just women (I’m not a girly girl)

    I have also had bridal showers where the Fiance was there too….I did not find it weird…the guy usually looks a tad uncomfortable though…lol…so I guess it depends on how your fiance feels about it

    We had a wedding shower instead of a bridal shower, and that’s what we called it on the invitations.  We were coming from out of town, and so were a bunch of other family, so we invited men and my Fiance was there.  It was a blast!  My mom made posterboards of pictures with my Fiance and I from when we were babies to recently, and there were my fav cupcakes and FI’s fav cupcakes, and then we played a variation of the shoe game.

    It was perfect because we got to see and spend time with our Dads, uncles, all our cousins, and FI’s grandpa.  I think it’s a really nice thing to do when you’re out of town from everyone.

    Darling Husband dropped me off and spent about 15 minutes there and then he went and met with all the guys for a few drinks and some food at our favorite place. He would not ahve been comfortable being there the whole time and everyone knows that. If I was a guests Id be like WTF why is he still here.
