Darling Husband came towards the end to thank everyone and do the manual labor (pack up the gifts). He brought me flowers which scored some major brownie points with the ladies.

No, he won’t be in town, but I wouldn’t want him to come anyway!

My shower was in another state from where Darling Husband lived, but I honestly would have loved it if he would have been able to do something like what @UpstateCait:‘s Darling Husband did and what you’re considering. I would have loved to have been able to have introduced my DH to so many of the ladies who attended my shower, especially since our wedding timeline ended up so far off track, and we never even had the opportunity to go around and greet the vast majority of our guests at the wedding.

@jpmorgan:  The scenario you described is exactly what has occurred at every bridal shower I have ever been to!

Every shower I have been too the Fiance was there.. mmmm I was convinced that he has to be there and I keep on thinking to myself that he’s going to be miserable… so he doesnt have to be there? He would be much happier if he wasnt…

Oh God no! He’d hate it! I’ll spare them that. He’ll probably go have beers with the boys as his bucks is on at a different day/ time.

Darling Husband came to our shower, but, then again, everyone viewed it as our shower rather than my shower. At least, as far as I know everyone viewed it that way. After all, we were getting married, so shouldn’t the celebration be for us? I don’t know why anyone would have a problem with what you’re considering OP. It sounds like the best of both worlds to me.

we are planning to have Fiance to stop in toward the end to thank everyone and say high to some relatives that he hasnt seen for a while. He is actually excited about it so i think it is great he wants to come…

Fiance wouldn’t normally come, but my sick grandmom is throwing me the shower (long story) so Fiance stepped in and offered to help with cooking and doing whatever he can.

@jpmorgan:  

@UpstateCait:  

This is what I have seen happen!!

Fiance works midnights and has to work the day of the shower, so he porbably won’t be stopping in.

My Fiance, my dad, and Future Father-In-Law all came to the mexican restaurant that my shower was at dressed in full on “mariachi” attire with ponchos, mustaches, sombreros, and instruments. I knew they would be coming… just didn’t know like that. They are a fun bunch that likes to liven up parties ๐Ÿ™‚
