I’m getting married in about two and a half months, and my FSIL/MOH has offered to host the bridal shower. As someone with only 3 attendants — a Maid/Matron of Honor & 2 BMs, one of whom lives in another state and so won’t be able to attend — and not very many close female friends or relatives, I’m considering the idea of a co-ed wedding shower instead. Most of the invitees will be members of my FH’s family anyway, and I like the appeal of a more casual get together we can both take part in.
Do any of you have experience hosting/having/attending a co-ed wedding shower? Are people typically receptive to the idea, or should I try to keep things more traditional?

I’d much rather go to a co-ed wedding shower. I’ve never been to one but I’ve been to a couple co-ed baby showers that were a thousand times more fun than any baby or wedding shower I’ve been to.
I hate showers but co-ed ones always end up feeling like fun regular party/get together and are so much more enjoyable.

We had a couple ed bridal shower. Personally neither of us agreed with having a bachelorette or bachelor party so we had a casual and very fun garden co ed shower

Actually, in real life (both family, coworkers, neighbors, and friends), I have been to way more co-ed showers. I think I have only been to 3 showers that were not co-ed. I am talking about BOTH bridal and baby. On the other hand, here at the weddingbees and what I see on tv/movies, it seems like it’s almost always for women only.
