Looking for a clever way to share the sex of your baby? Throw a gender reveal party! This type of celebration is typically held during pregnancy as a way for expecting parents to surprise friends and family with the gender of the baby in an exciting way.
Of course, there are many things to consider when planning a gender reveal, such as what you’ll wear. The right outfit will deliver both style and comfort, and in some cases, will show everyone your gender preference. Consider sporting a pink dress for team girl or a blue dress for team boy.
Regardless of gender, a new baby is a blessing and a gender reveal party is simply a way to celebrate the impending birth in a creative way.
What Is a Gender Reveal?
Gender reveal parties are a fairly new concept first developed in the late 2000s. They are often confused with baby showers but have a different purpose. While a baby shower focuses on gifting supplies for the new baby and expecting parents, a gender reveal focuses on the baby’s sex.
Sharing of the baby’s gender is typically done in a unique way. Some expecting parents choose to reveal pink or blue confetti from a balloon or piñata, while others choose the classic option of cutting into a cake to reveal a pink or blue interior. Expecting parents may also ask guests to vote on whether they think the new baby is a girl or boy before the big reveal.

One of the toughest decisions you’ll need to make when planning a gender reveal is what dress you’ll wear to the event.
