    I'd say yes, if that's what you would have normally done at a party pre-pregnancy. It is, after all, a celebration. Why not?!

    I've never been to one, and have never had one, but I always thought that champaign was served at baby showers, as a celebration - not to get sh!+ faced.

    Nope but it would be a nice addition! At a wedding recently they had the best alcohol free champagne

    I served it at mine, and would appreciate it being made available.

    But I had a male and female baby shower, and there weren't kids there. Maybe that's different. But I served alcohol at my son's first birthday party as well.

    I think yes!!! It's a celebration and whilst the guest of honour can't drink, no reason why the guests shouldn't. It's been no different for the past 7 months or so has it!!

    My sister made an alcoholic punch for my guests, and a non-alcoholic version for me. People didn't get sh!t faced out of respect for the fact that I couldn't drink, but they had a few and were merry.
    If I were organising it myself I probably would buy some alcohol free champers and a few bottles of the real stuff for guests but I wouldn't be breaking the bank to buy whole cases.

    I think it's up to the person hosting (or the person who the shower is for).

    I think I'd be a bit annoyed if everyone was getting boozy at my baby shower, and I was just sitting there all sober and boring because I was pregnant (I don't drink at all during pregnancy).

    I'm also not one of those people who thinks that a social event is not complete without alcohol... so I'd probably prefer it not served at mine tbh. Most are during the day, and I find it odd to drink during the day, so again, it'd just be "weird" for me to be drinking at someone else's baby shower as well.

    At mine my SIL made margaritas and non alcoholic margaritas for non drinkers and pregnant women and I thought it was cute, I have no problem if adults want a to have a drink at any party
