- Wedding: May 2012
I need some opinions:
I am getting married in Las Vegas and my bridesmaids are asking about what I want to do for a bridal shower and bachelorette party. I do want a fun night out dancing with my best gals –but I feel uncomforatble having a shower when I am having a destination wedding, because I am considering the cost of people traveling. My BMs still want me to register. It is a small wedding about 40 people will attend, but 60 were invited.
SO and I live together, and we had to buy our household items already. I am not a fine china person (afraid of never using it bec I would break it), and besides a new toaster oven or some new towels, there is not much I feel the need to register for that wouldn’t be really big items. We are having an open bar and spending a lot on the reception. I prefer guests to offer a monetary gift of their choosing at the wedding instead of registering for things I am not sure I really want.
BMs are pressuring me into a shower because people are asking about gifts. I prefer the idea of a Jack and Jill rather than a shower. Should I have a Jack & Jill party and find an alternate way for people to give us gifts without having to do a formal registry?
Does anyone have an ideas on what to do for gifting ideas without a formal registry?
Should I skip the idea of a shower/Jack and Jill because it is a destination wedding?
