Our friends Danny and Marissa's coed shower had a "Baby Fiesta" theme.
Since we tried for over a year to get pregnant, we have already discussed several things about having a baby that other couples may not consider until further in pregnancy. When I brought up the idea of a coed shower to my husband at some point last year, he was adamantly against it. I was disappointed because I've never been a fan of most shower games (I was even against them for my bridal shower) and I always feel awkward being the center of attention when opening gifts. Also, I thought it would be fun to have a casual party with all of our friends and family to celebrate this new chapter in our lives. I understood where my husband was coming from, but hoped he might change his mind when we became pregnant.
Nope. No coed shower for us. He'd rather be golfing. Oh well...
My friends and I at Michelle and Andy's coed baby shower two years ago.
So, now that I know the whole casual coed thing is out, I've been thinking about what I'll do instead. I love planning parties and, while I know I'm not supposed to plan my own shower, I can't help but dream of what I'd like it to be like...
But that's a post for another day!
Would you/did you have a coed baby shower? Or do you prefer the all girls traditional route?
