lolot: I’ve only ever been to one baby shower and I was definitely the odd one out in not having kids. Alcohol would have made that experience MUCH more bearable!
almostmrsj: Sangria sounds wonderful! Like I said, I’m not going to let it stop me from going. I thought it was cute, they also asked in lieu of cards to have everyone bring a book. So that will be cute.
sunshine809: My Darling Husband is also invited and I KNOW he’s going to need some beer to get through it. I don’t think he has the slightest idea of what happens at baby showers. His “parties” consist of going four-wheeling with the guys and drinking copious amounts of beer.

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?

pinkcorsage: That’s what I originally thought but then in looking at the guest list (it’s on facebook so since I’m going I can see the guests invited) there are only 25 people invited so they would definitely know who is 21. I’m thinking it must be a new apartment complex rule. I still think it’s weird to have to pay for it. Well, to each his own I guess!

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.
