Honestly I think its fine for the groom to be there.  Most of the stuff you receive is for the both of you so why not?  My Fiance is definitely going to be there but opening the presents is all on me.

If we have one, he’s SO gonna be there… of course, we’ll also be inviting the guys to come too, since a lot of our male friends aren’t married or involved with anyone and we’d want them to come to our party to join in on the celebration… plus they’d never forgive me if I DIDN’T invite them!!! LOL!

My Fiance dropped me off at mine and picked me up (my friends were borrowng my car). It was fun because earlier I had to play a game to see how well I knew him, so when he showed up we had him play the game 🙂

It’s commonplace and pretty expected that the groom is present at wedding showers in my neck of the woods.  It’s a given that my fiance will be at our shower. next month.

we had our shower at a country club for brunch, and my dad didn’t want to miss out on the brunch so he had the guys go in a seperate room. they kept coming in to see what was going on with us. if i did it again, i’d just keep them in the same room b/c they obviously wanted to be there.

my hubby didn’t help open presents though. he offered, but his 4 year old niece was doing an awesome job helping me.

My FH went golfing he wanted nothing to do with a shower but he had a ball when he got home and saw all the presents!

I made J come to ours. I hate stuff like that, so he came to help direct some of the attention off me. Plus it was 75% his relatives whom I’d never met before! Both of our dads also came, and the three of them joked that they would sneak downstairs to play pool, but they ended up really enjoying the games. 🙂 No TP bride or stuff though, the hostesses planned more gender neutral stuff on purpose.

yeah my fiance will definitely be at the shower to open presents and eat with us… he might come a little late or something like that though.

I’ve never been to a shower where the groom is there. Sometimes he shows up at the end to help pack up the presents to bring them home, but that’s not a general rule. I don’t think I would have wanted Fiance at my showers, I liked just being with my girls and talking wedding stuff without worrying about him being bored or sick of all the girly stuff. Plus I don’t really think he’d want to spend all the time oooh-in and ahhhhh-ing over everything like girls do.

Oh wait, I lied. I was at one shower a couple months ago where the groom and his groomsmen worked the bar and served us lunch. But it was a 150 person bridal shower with a formal sit down lunch. I’ve never been to a shower like that before. Start to finish it was completely different from every shower I’ve ever been to!!!

Fiance and I had a jack & jill shower, so he was there for the whole thing and def. helped open all the presents!
