Question:
The bride usually has several showers that include an all-female guest list, so why isn’t there an all-guy bridal, er, “groomal” shower?

Groom’s Etiquette Expert, Chris Easter’s Answer:
Believe it or not, groom showers (also known as man showers) are becoming very popular in the wedding world. Similar to a bridal shower, a man shower is a pre-wedding party that is hosted by the best man or member of the groom’s family. This is not a replacement for the bachelor party, but rather a daytime affair that can include grilling, gaming, and gift giving. Popular themes for man showers are home improvement, backyard & patio, and bar & grill.
