So, I’m having a bridal shower thrown by my mom’s friends this weekend. I asked while they were planning the shower if it was alright if Fiance comes, and they said sure. I’m pretty excited. Not because he gets to go to a shower, but because he’ll get to fully experience shower awkwardness. It’s a linens shower (something guys love, I’m sure), so I’m looking forward to handing him some of the presents to open and hearing him exclaim over how awesome these sheets are, or how nice this handtowel is.
Anyone else take their Fiance to a shower?

In our showers, it’s customary for the groom to come at the end with flowers for the bride, mother, and Mother-In-Law. This is the unofficial end to a shower. So, Fiance does make an appearance, but not for all of it.

in my area the groom always comes the the entire shower… that’s how it’s done with my family and friends etc.

Fiance, my dad, and my mom’s boss were the three men there. No one thought it was weird (plus, it was at an event space in a brew pub so it was right up their alley). I was much happier having Fiance there.

We are going to have a jack-and-jill shower here for family and friends that can’t come and my sweetie will be there. My other shower is in my hometown, so he won’t be flying with me for that. I have been to showers where guys come at the end as mentioned above to bring flowers… and to help PACK UP the car.

We had lunch first with all of the women, and then Darling Husband and our dads showed up for the gift opening part. We opened all of the presents together. They were also very useful in helping us haul everything to the car! I’ve seen it done a lot of different ways–I’m not sure if there is a norm for this.

My Darling Husband was there as the “camera man” and to open gifts at the end. Even though the focus of the day was on me, I wanted him to be a part of it since the wedding was about both of us. He had a great time too 🙂

We are having a co-ed shower, so my Fiance will be there! I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.

Yep, I can tell we’re from the same area! It’s completely standard procedure for the man to come to the showers for the entire time. My husband attended our wedding shower and both of the baby showers. It was never even a question of whether or not he was coming!

@Vegas Pug: Yeah, I think this def depends on what part of the country you live in. My Mother-In-Law wanted to host my Fiance a “Groom’s” shower, and I was like what the heck is that? She is from Wisconsin and I guess the man never goes to the shower. I explained that Jon will be coming to ours since my family considers it a bridal shower for the both of us. I am happy he is coming because he is the more outgoing one anyways! 🙂
