    Nope, he didn’t. He was (obviously) at the Couples Shower, but not the Bridal. Plus we had plenty of hands on deck to get the gifts into my car.

    My friend’s Fiance came in the last hour to mingle. He looked terrified at first  but someone handed him a beer and he was good after that. lol

    @basketballwifetobe:  It is tradition 🙂 Darling Husband showed up for the last hour of mine. After gifts and before cake.

    I’ve seen grooms show up at the END of the shower to ooh and aah over the gifts, give people a hug, kiss and thank you, and then help load up the car. I haven’t seen a groom show up to open gifts before. Darling Husband came to the end of one of mine to help load up, but he didn’t actually “attend” the shower. I think he would have been bored senseless  😉

    No, but he lives in Europe, so… I don’t think he would anyways, though, except for the margaritas.. It’s a crafting party and I don’t think he’d really be into that!

    @basketballwifetobe:  haha of course!

    Fiance will be coming to the end, to bring the moms & me flowers and to help put away any gifts.

    My husband came and dropped me off, came in and said hi. Then he and his best man left they came back towards the end to say thank yous, and helped load up. He didn’t open gifts or anything, but I think it was nice to have him there for a bit. Plus I guess it is an English tradition to have the groom bring the bride to the bridal shower, and I’m english.

    Because our families and friends are so spread out, I’m having 3 showers. Future Mother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law are throwing one where we live now with his family and my school friends, he will probably go no where near it. The second will be at my mother’s house with our MD family and friends, and he’ll be away with Army things. The last will be in NY with more of our guests and where most of my family is, he’ll be coming with me to this but off doing things w/ my brother and uncles while the shower is taking place and when it is over all of the men will join us for a party at my aunt’s house.

    Fiance really doesn’t want to come, he said last night that guys should have their own showers- where he would get accessories for his gun, ammo, grilling accessories, and a big screen TV. lol

    I have seen and heard of the groom coming at the last hour, but not very often.  With that said, Darling Husband absolutely did not come to either shower.  Not even to the one at MIL’s that just had his family.  He felt they’re strictly for the ladies and didn’t want to be ooh and aah’d over.

    A friend had her Fiance there the whole time (girls only shower). He looked pretty miserable, but it was in his house (his mom threw it) so he couldn’t really avoid it. Plus all the people there were his mom’s friends and relatives, so he knew more guests than the bride.

    He showed up at the very very end for the shower with his side of the family and friends (many of whom I had never even met!) but he didn’t come to my side shower.

    No. He and some of the male relatives of the females who travelled in, showed up just after the guests left to help clean up.
