My family is VERY excited about this baby --- it's the first grandchild on my side (and I have a big family) and only the second grandchild on my husband's side. My parents want to throw my husband and me a big baby shower (50+ people) but they want it to be a co-ed baby shower.
I am of Indian descent and my husband is Caucasian and my parents want to integrate some different cultural aspects of the Indian culture into this baby shower. Basically, there would be a half hour or so Hindu religious ceremony said in Sanskrit (which is oriented toward my husband), then a half hour of Indian baby games where all of the women place bangles on my wrist to ward off evil spirits (oriented toward me). Then, we would have a more traditional American baby shower with food and drinks and such --- though I doubt we'll do any baby shower "games." I personally think it will be really fun to combine both of our traditions --- our wedding was also similarly a combination of traditions and everyone loved it. But, I know that this isn't a normal approach.
So, here's the question after this super long story: what do you think of this baby shower concept? Do you think it would be boring to come and basically attend a full hour of other stuff before you got to the other normal baby shower stuff? Do you think that co-ed baby showers are weird?
