Omg!!! 1 of my bridesmaids asked me if her boyfriend can come to the BACHELORETTE party!!! I was like WTF no its for girls only, my Future Sister-In-Law also got pretty upset when she found out her boyfriend wasnt going to be able to get ready at the hotel with me and the rest of the bridesmaids. She is now getting ready with her mom and boyfriend.

I don’t understand how dumb people can be I’m 22 and I know that bridal showers and bachelorette partys and all that stuff are for girls only, I would never in a million years ask or even want to bring my Fiance with me.

Yea that’s super annoying. At my sister’s baby shower, there was one girl who came and complained the whole time because she hates all-girl events and “it’s not her fault she has a vagina”…and then proceeded to post on Facebook how much she was dreading the shower and hated having to be there. 

Sounds like you handled it well.

She definitely shouldn’t be upset if she knows it’s an girl’s only event, but it seems to be more and more common for people to have a shower where both males and females are present. My husband and I went to one several months ago. It was a baby shower and the mommy wanted both men and women there – in fact, she made her fiance open all of the gifts! lol


My shower was girl’s only because I think it’s more fun that way. The women at my shower all enjoyed the games and everything. Men would have been bored out of their minds!

Personally I would prefer my SO there, only because large groups of girls make me uncomfortable. But I am weird like that. Also my SO would have no problem joining in on the festivities as thats just how he is. But it is your party so you set the rules.

In my opinion, bridal shower is just a kind of girl party.

How old is this girl? LOL! My husband would have a real fit if he had to go to an all girls shower that wasn’t for me. The ones thrown for me he attended at the end but holy Hell, what a hit to his manhood if he had to be there for the whole thing.

Maybe she’s only been to couples showers before? But still, once you said it’s an all girls thing, she really should have gotten the point. Why would he want to go sit around with a bunch of ladies?
