I had a semi- coed shower. Fiance came in for only one game (the shoe game) and helped open gifts. The rest of the time him and some buddies drank beer and shot guns.

I hate co-ed bridal showers!  I think it’s totally normal for the Fiance to be there or show up around cake time, but I don’t think men want to be there.  It also changes the whole dynamic.

My fiance came to our shower, but he was the only guy there. I hate being the center of attention, plus half the guests were his family anyways.

I say have your guy go but dont invite the other guys.

@MrsDeLovely:  We are doing this actually. So my Fiance and I are having a joint shower. He’ll probably BBQ and the women will play games! 🙂

We had a co-ed shower at work. It went well! Plus it was nice for Fiance to help me open gifts and be up there to support me. I hate being the center of attention.

@MrsDeLovely:  

I just had a co-ed bridal shower for work and it was great! Everyone knew each other though so it was easier for the men to mix with the women and not feel awkward and it was just one big present from everyone, very casual and not a very traditional bridal shower.

I attended a “couples shower” last year, which is another way of describing a co-ed shower.  It was actually a lot of fun, especially since the engaged couple’s friends are all married or in relationships.  But to make it guy-friendly, it was just an afternoon gathering on a private home rooftop with food and drink, socializing, and gift opening.  There was only one (cute) game — with the bride and groom competing to answer questions about each other — so that people could get to know them.  Everyone had a great time.  I think it’s a nice option, particularly if you’re having a second shower that will be all women.

I had a co-ed shower. Though we didn’t do any of the girlie game stuff (thank heavens..not my style). We ate, had a bon fire, drank, and opened gifts. It was fun!

I’m having a couples shower.  We are inviting both sides of the wedding party and male/female family and close friends.  I didn’t want a tea party girl only bridal shower (plus I have a male attendant on my side).  This was a perfect compromise since we never had an engagement party.  We are doing a BBQ, with yard games (volleyball, corn hole etc.).  Probably get a keg and definitely no bridal shower games, yuck, but hey just my opinion.  We are excited that both sides getting to meet in a casual fun atmosphere before the wedding.  It will make the day more enjoyable for everyone.

I went to a co-ed bridal shower a few weeks ago and it was a BLAST. The bridesmaids rented a room at a laser tag place, and we played laser tag, ate food, and hung out. It was not a typical “bridal shower feel” and I think that’s why it worked. The key was having activities planned for everyone to enjoy together.
