Can men come to a baby shower?

my shower is going to be held at my church, so I'm assuming anyone that goes to it is invited...so is it "against the rules" if my husband comes?

  • It isn't against the "rules" or anything but not necessarily fun for them. We had a "diaper party" on the same day as my baby shower. My husband invited his friends over for a cook-out and they had to bring a pack of diapers. It was fun for them to have a guys time while we did the girl thing. Plus it gave us more diapers.

  • My MIL had my baby shower and we had just as many guys--my hubby's buddies--as we did women. It was great. A bunch of our closet friends celebrating the fact we were having a baby.

  • I had men at my shower because many relatives traveled quite a distance and some do not like to travel alone.

  • I didn't have any men at my bridal shower, my dad stopped by at the end to help load everything, but my DH was working.
    If he was off, he may have stopped by for awhile...he did stop at my Bridal shower for lunch! :-)

  • No I just had one with the girls, but I don't think there is anything wrong with having men at a shower.

  • There weren't any at mine, but times have changed so feel free to bring your husband if you want. I'm sure people won't mind celebrating the coming birth of his child, too!

    DDry ~ I love the diaper party idea for the men! I'll keep that in mind for a suggestion for future baby shower questions. Thanks!
