I've been told that it's expected of me to attend a bridal shower. Me being a guy always assumed that it's just an excuse for girls to get together and gab and give gifts. Now I'm being told that I should attend. Is this a new concept or has it always been that way?

Hell no, go to a strip club and enjoy your last remaining days of freedom...

The guys who go to bridal showers wear lime geen slacks and talk with a lisp.

When my best freind's lady had one Doug was told he had to go. I, being his best man, was told by Doug that if he had to go I did also, my wife was going to be there. So Doug and I went drunk. Worked OK they are working on 30 years and my wife and I are working on 32 years.

tell her it will be fun to shower with her friend, why do they wash her anyway she can do by her self. if she is getting married why the shower, a bubble bath would be more fun, just saying~R:wink:

I went to all of my wife's bridal showers and had a good time at all of them.
Ya never know what the gals will come up with. Besides, the shower is for both of you.

Lordy, things have changed!!
Back in my day, if guys had showed up at a bridal
shower, they'ed have been peppered with shoes,
purses, and God knows what else. Then they'ed
have been led away by the ear for a lecture. The
lucky ones would've then been let loose.

Any gifts they may have brought would have been
closely examined and commented upon by the group.
And if it was something especially nice, the rest of
the herd would Really start eyeing the bride!

It just wasn't done, y'all.

I've been invited to several. Declined all of them, offered my appreciation for the invite but then stated I believe that's a gal thing. As a matter of fact I've declined baby showers also.

Are you sure you are not going to be the entertainment? They didn't ask you to come in cop uniform or anything like that did they?

Go, you can always hit on the bride's maids. Never know you just might score.

Aside from that, if it makes your old lady happy do it. That stuff pays off in the long run.

Just make sure you take enough soap, shampoo, and body spray so that she wont be offended by the lack of forethought and expense in your gift.

Must be something new. I don't recall ever hearing of a man being ask to attend a bridal shower. It just wasn't the norm. Isn't the best man suppose to take the groom and friends out on that night?


Edited to add: I would feel like a cat in a room full of rocking chairs if I had to go to one.

Correct. Proper etiquette has it that bridal showers are for the feminine gender. For the other gender, bachelor parties are the appropriate celebrations. It is wholly acceptable for the latter of these affairs to be totally debauched.

Jeeezzz! You guys don't know this?? :eek:

Jeeezzz! You guys don't know this?? :eek: My sentiments exactly. Thought there was a reason they had the bridal showers and the bachelor parties. I was thinking that would about equate to a woman attending the bachelor party. Sounds bout as bad as a SAW butt stock on a FAL. Just wrong in sooooo many ways.

But breaking a leg or a car wreck sounds like a good idea. Don't wanna be labeled "metrosexual".

If it is YOUR wife or GF holding the shower, you MIGHT be asked to stick around and help out. In that case, you will be expected to be a gofer but otherwise to make yourself scarce. You will then be expected to help with the post shower cleanup. Pray that this does not happen.

If it's not YOUR wife or GF holding the shower, or if it is and you have not been asked to give a hand, do yourself and the attendees a big favor. Grab the groom and his groomsmen, and go do something fun, like shooting, or small game hunting.

Do not for any reason show your sensitive side by volunteering to help out and/or actually attend the shower yourself. The rest of your life will result in a shortage of sex, and you will be expected to do all the household chores.

Do NOT believe any of those PC lies about how important it is for you to participate in such a momentous event, and/or how things have changed either.

You've been warned.

I've gone to friends' "co-ed" bridal showers. They were okay....I guess. I did not go to my wife's shower....and it doesn't sound like I missed much.

If your wife-to-be doesn't uderstand that there are some things you guys just don't need to do together....RUN!

I love museums...history, art, military...you name it. My wife gets bored easily and doesn't really like most museums...especially the ones related to guns or war. She always says she wants to go....we're BOTH happier when she doesn't.

I probably wouldn't go. Even my girlfriend thinks its just for the girls. Especially because if they give your newly wed something to wear for you as a present you won't know about it.

I don't think the idea of getting drunk with a buddy and going is too bad.
