  • I've only been to one co-ed and the men went off and blabbered not paying any attention to what was supposed to be the main focus. So if you do have a co-ed I was suggest you don't expect the men to participate.

  • I like the ones that are's all women until present time, then the husband comes to help his wife open the presents and thank everyone. ;)

  • i go for the co-ed, the family makes a mini party out of it and it gives them a chance to re-unite and spend quality time together as a whole :) it also keeps the mean involved, and doesn't make them feel left out. my cousins both had co-ed showers and they were great! they had games at the shower too which was pretty fun considering men are pretty competitive and silly when they get into it lol (at least the ones i know) it's a blast! just gotta be careful what kind of games you pick, if any, because some are pretty boring.

  • Traditional. The men showed up to mine before it was over and the mood totally changed once they showed up.
