    I think it’s a great idea and I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Sorry I really don’t have any ideas. We are also having a couple’s shower and trying to figure out ideas for our Las Vegas Casino theme.

    So for couples showers, does the couple throw their own? Or is it thrown by the bridal party. I guess I am confused why the couple is involved.

    @futureladyg: Thanks! That would be really helpful. I have never heard of a couple throwing their own shower, I always understood that a close friend or relative should throw it for you. In our case, we have a good mutual friend who offered to throw us the shower since we’re not having a wedding party.

    We’re doing a Couple’s Shower too! As far as etiquette, I think technically the bridal party still throws it (in our case, the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man will be officially throwing it). However, I do think you get more input in this case so you can all make sure it’s appropriate for both men and women, etc etc. It isn’t like the traditional Bridal Shower because it’s a bit more relaxed usually and should be something both sides will enjoy. 🙂

    I think your theme idea is cute – would you bridal party want to be involved in helping plan it?

    @futureladyg: Bachelorette Party Input – my opinion is that we get a little say, but we don’t “plan” anything. I told my BMs what I don’t want aka a strip club/bar/party kind of Bachelorette. Other than that, I suggested a few cute ideas I’d heard of, like spa days or whatever. But nothing official.

    It’s kind of the same approach we have to our couples. We are giving them the guestlist (since it IS a bit more complicated having men and women) and suggesting things we think would go over well, but no we aren’t “planning” it. They’ll do the place, the food, the entertainment, the invites. We just feel like our opinion does matter, since we presumably know most of these people really well.
