NowMrsS:  Yeah that is definitely not a “baby shower thing”. There might be some liquor license issues but even if for some reason the venue was charging $3 for unlimited drinks, I’d pay that myself as the host. I mean, it’s far less than I would pay buying the alcohol myself anyway. That’s really weird.

I don’t think alcohol at a shower is weird, but having to pay for it is IMO.

We went to a co-ed shower that was held in a club and we were charged for drinks (even pop!!) which I found rude and annoying. And it’s not like it was a reduced amount, they still wanted like $7 a drink and like $3 for a pop! But, I like the idea of paying a small amount and getting to have a couple drinks, if they HAVE to charge for drinks. But I am of the same mind as some pps and think as a host, drinks should be included. If you can’t afford alcohol, then just don’t have any, it’s not a big deal. But have fun anyways! lol

NowMrsS:  That’s odd…I’ve heard of serving alcohol, but wristbands?  Maybe they want to make sure no one under 21 is drinking?

My first baby shower was co-ed, and most showers I’ve been to (and thrown) have had alcohol. But the wristband thing is weird to me. I know providing alcohol for a party can be expensive, but I don’t think guests should be expected to pitch in for the cost.
