Penis Bridal Shower Favors Aren't for Everyone

A cousin of mine just told me that she attended a bridal shower a few weeks back where the favors were pink-colored chocolate penis pops (see photo above).  In addition to the x-rated pops, the entertainment included a stripper.  The guest list included friends of the bride as well as her family and the groom's family.  That includes moms and grandmas.

I remember a story years ago of a friend who attended a bridal shower and one of the moms - the bride or groom's, I don't remember which - surprised the bride with a stripper at the bridal shower.

I personally would have been mortified if a stripper showed up at my shower, where my mom and grandmothers were present.

There's a difference between the shower and bachelorette party.  The bridal shower is to "shower" the bride with gifts to furnish her new home with her husband.  The bachelorette party, like a bachelor party, is for the bride-to-be to celebrate her last night as a single gal with her best buds.

While of course it's up to you to decide what you want at either of these parties, not everyone wants a stripper at their shower or bachelorette.  Let the hosts of these parties know what you want.  After all their both parties in your honor.

PS - I am a fan of edible favors for weddings and showers so talk to your chocolatier about options that fit the party's theme or a wedding theme in general.
