    I served it at mine, and I would usually expect it to be there at an adult gathering.

    Of course it's up to the host. I'm not a fan of 'alcohol free' wine (too sweet) so would prefer nothing at all / cup of tea to that.

    I think it's up to the person I don't see anything wrong with it.

    It's up to the person, but I haven't been to a baby shower where there hasn't
    been drinking!

    I am throwing one of my friends a baby shower next weekend. It is BYO, but I am making non-alcoholic mojitos for the baby-mumma and me

    Wow I'm shocked at how many people say yes I never would have thought that alcohol would be at a baby shower I understand it's a celebration but I'd be a bit grumpy if everyone was drinking while I'm pregnant and can't and I think if you can't celebrate with out alcohol something is wrong your celebrating the arrival of a new born in which I don't feel the need for alcohol at all just my opinion

    Yes I would serve it and would also expect it to be available if I went to one - I have never been to one where no wine/bubbly was offered.

    I don't see why not. I'd absolutely have some wine/champers available for my guests. I don't care if I can't drink. I've been to many parties/dinners during this pregnancy and seeing others drink when I cannot doesn't bother me at all. It's not like it would turn into a full blown booze up, I wouldn't supply a keg or anything, lol! but some wine for those who'd like to enjoy a glass of wine with nibbles.. sure

    Yes!

    I made sure I had lots of lovely bubbly on hand at mine and some friends even BYO. It's an adult party afterall - I had no kids at my baby shower. I didn't mind I couldn't drink...It'd be selfish for me to expect other people to remain alcohol free because I had to, as long as everyone had a good time and champagne is a nice elegant choice. We had frozen blueberries and strawberries to pop in the glasses to go with the boy/girl theme.
    Every baby shower I have been to had had alcohol available for those who want it.

    My SIL had champagne, Lift soft drink, apple juice and fruit punch. I had punch, it was really good, and most others did, too. The champers went unopened, some kids had apple juice and a the Lift had a little bit out of it. I was surprised alcohol was offered, but it was at her mum's house, and her mum decided to get it and have it on offer. It was opened the night the baby was born. Both my parents, both her parents, me and her brother had a glass after leaving the hospital. Even that felt strange to everyone in my family but it was poured without even asking us. We were just there to fold nappies and sort clothes, since he was born a 000.

    IMO... NO way!! I think its really strange.

    However I do think it comes down to the type of baby shower you are having. A traditional baby shower... definitely not. A BBQ, girls day out at the spa etc yes ok maybe a champagne but not actually to get your drink on. Thats really odd imo.

    In saying that I am as old school as it comes. So maybe I need to get with the program lol

    I don't think the intention is to "get your drink on" just because alcohol is served. A glass or two of bubbly is a bit different than getting sloshed
