However, he would arrive atrepparttar 148837 end ofrepparttar 148838 baby shower to greet and thank allrepparttar 148839 baby shower guests andrepparttar 148840 hostess.

But these days, it's becoming more and more common to include men inrepparttar 148841 baby showers along with friends, spouses, and relatives. Again it is a personal choice. Onlyrepparttar 148842 hostess needs to decide whether you want a traditional “ladies only” shower with lots of “girly talks” and personal pregnancy stories. Or whether you're looking for a more non-traditional baby shower. Nothing is either wrong or right. But rather it is all about everyone enjoying themselves no matter what type of shower you want to host. If you do plan on invitingrepparttar 148843 dad-to-be, it would be a good idea to know him better, his personality type, what food he likes, beverages, what his friends are like, availability etc. There are a few men who get pale byrepparttar 148844 mere thought of being around so many women. Especially knowing this is traditionally an all female event.

If you do decide to inviterepparttar 148845 father-to-be. Then it would be a kind gesture to also invite several of his male friends. You might also have some nice "manly" type food and beverages to make them more comfortable. After all, it takes a rather daring man to come to what is traditionally an all female event. It would also be a good idea to include some games that men and women both would enjoy.
