Oh gosh! An oversight on my part. When my Mom and I picked out the shower invites we never thought it would so confusing. I guess the wording “couples shower” is making some think the shower means they can bring their spouse, boyfriend, fiancé, etc. I had to post something on Facebook clarifying! Haha whoops! 😂😂

Wouldn’t you want the guests to bring their spouses or boyfriends/girlfriends?

That is exactly what a couple’s shower means. Your invites aren’t confusing – you and your mom seem confused.
Now that invites are out, I would open the invitation to both men and women. It was your mistake, and it’s unfair to take that back now. What did you think couple’s shower meant?

A couples shower customarily does mean it’s open to significant others.

I’m confused lol. What did you intend to mean by “couples shower”

Uh, that’s exactly what a couple’s shower is….what did you think a couple’s shower was?

Oh, and posting about your shower on Facebook where I’m assuming you have fb friends who aren’t invited to the wedding or the shower is very uncouth. I’d remove that immediately.

What else would it mean? That’s what a couples shower is – a shower where men and women are invited and the couple are the guests of honor.
I would just own the screw-up and allow SOs at this point.

Your invites are fine. You and your mother on the other hand seem confused. Did you think the couples part referred to the future bride and groom? 🤔 As silly as that sounds its the only explanation I can come up with. And I agree with a pp about removing the FB post.

I legit want to know what you thought it meant. Please tell instead of just deleting this.

Traditionally a “Bridal Shower” indicates just for ladies, also the envelopes would only be addressed to women. A “couple’s Shower” indicates couples are invited. Why did you pick the invite? You shouldn’t be in charge of your shower… also, delete the Facebook post and have the guys come. Couple showers are fun and an excellent way to include the groom and his friends.

Oh my god….never in my life…so ungodly embarrassing…
I did NOT know that is what it meant. At all! Will take immediate action to fix.
Mom picked out invites and I helped her choose. I didn’t do much research before hand and now I am paying for it!
Some of the responses are unnecessarily rude. It was an honest mistake.

I strongly suggest honoring the full invite for couples. My friends aunt is throwing her a bridal shower and on the same fb invite says “Bachelorette to follow”. I think it’s beyond poor thinking on her part because I know all 50 ppl invited to the shower isnt invited to the party. Ppl will show up to her shower expecting to be included to the other party to follow. I’m glad I’m not in their position 😕. Don’t do it to yourself
