    I didn’t have a shower, but I think that if I had one, I would’ve wanted my Fiance to come along too. Does the host of the shower know he’s coming? And will there be other men there too? Just curious 🙂

    I just had mine this weekend and I know for a fact that my Fi would not have been comfortable being the only male there. Also I am not sure if our guest would have been comfortable either b/c there was a lot of “girl talk” about weddings, sex, marriage, ect. Also a lot of the gifts were like lingere, books, picture frames, our china patteren, and many other things he could care less about. Like the pp make sure that your host is aware so that it wont be “too girly” for him.

    I’ve already told my family and Fiance that I don’t like couple showers.  I think they’re uncomfortable, and traditionally, the point of a shower is to shower the bride with gifts.  I get why people do couple showers, and if it floats your boat, great… I know I would be horribly uncomfortable, as would Fiance, if we had a couple shower!

    We had a couples shower thrown by our wedding party which was really more of a party.  The men didn’t even really come in to watch the gifts opening which was fine by me. 

    Future Sister-In-Law threw a shower for her side of the family (they have a big family and we don’t) and Fiance stopped by at the end to say thank you.

    For my Bridal Shower, it’s just me and I’m OK with that!  Fiance would hate it, LoL!

    I’ve been to plenty of showers where Fiance comes and ends up sitting at that bar with Dad patiently waiting for the festivities to end so they can load up the car with presents, but I opted not to force mine to do that. He would be so uncomfortable so it didn’t even cross my mind. 🙂

    @Mars62312:  That’s what my MOHs are doing for Fiance and me instead of a traditional women-only shower!  I think it sounds soooo fun.  It will be outside, and we’ll be grilling, playing yard games, drinkin’ drinks, etc.  That is the only scenario where I can see my fiance being interested in coming to a shower.  Not because he doesn’t like my friends, of course, but I think he would feel awkward being the only guy at such a girly event.

    I didn’t have my shower yet, but I gave my bm a list of all ladies…no men.  I think I prefer that.  I know fi would not want to come, even though some of the stuff on the regsitry he picked out for him.  

    He was there for my baby showers though…:)

    My aunts threw a shower for me and that one was just me. That was all pretty much my family since they are from out of town. Just recently my Maid/Matron of Honor and bridesmaids had a couples shower. I felt more comfortable with my Fiance being there since the guests were primarily his family members. There were some other guys there although there were more females there. It was a really good time though. We both enjoyed ourselves.

    No he won’t be coming to either of mine. It is traditional that they come at the end with flowers for thr bride and hosts though, in our circle anyway.

    Mine was at the house when guests were arriving, and then showed up at the end with flowers for me!

    My Fiance won’t be there for the party, but he’s coming at the end to say hi and help load the car.  My Fiance loves me, but there is no way he would agree to come to the party.
