    It is okay to do a couple shower, where you invite both men and women. I’d just make it a litle bit different, like a cookout or something other than a “normal” shower where women sit around, eat a bit, talk weddings, and open presents. Treat it like a normal party.

    And – ask the person hosting it for you what they would like to do. No matter what genders are invited, you shouldn’t host your own shower.

    Co-ed showers are fine. Sexual orientation is irrelevant.

    To me a Bridal shower is for the bride and her friends and family (usually female). A time for female bonding and to be “showered” with love and support on her upcoming nuptials. To be able to have girltalk and speak and behave candid and freely. If its gonna be coed might as well call it a wedding shower or an engagement party.

    @xbrittfacee:  I definitely think it’s okay to invite guys. It’s not traditional and the vibe will be different but there’s nothing wrong with it. You two are celebrating your new life together and getting presents that you will both use, so why should it only be for girls? Just remember if you’re planning it that you will probably want to play different games, have different activities and/or use different color schemes to keep it unisexy! 🙂

    The majority of men I know would have no interest in going to a bridal shower. Yeah, you could invite them, but it doesn’t mean they will want to come or enjoy themselves.

    I can’t think of a single guy I know that would enjoy this type of thing.

    We are having a couple “cookout” shower. Not playing any games. Just doing food, friends/family, and presents. I know it’s typically a girls only thing, but I wasn’t comfortable having a whole shower for myself. Do what you want!

    I barely enjoy showers and there are no males I know in my area that would want to go to one. However, if your Fiance will go and other males you know then go for the co-ed shower. I did see a bee post pictures a few weeks ago and he Fiance was there. It looked cute.

    @xbrittfacee: I would tell her that she can invite men but they don’t like coming so the choice is hers. Does your groom want to come. Does the father-in-law want to come?

    @gelaine22:  +1 I don’t even like going to showers either! I know my Fiance had absolutely no interest in it!

    @AmyFarrahFowler:  yup! I rarely go to a shower unless it is a close friend. you couldnt pay my Fiance or his friends to go to one. Btw…did you find a florist?
