I would think they still have a shower. We want a destination wedding and I plan to have one because I’m still inviting everyone to the wedding, I just know they all won’t come.

Maybe if they don’t invite everyone, they probably don’t.

I say yes you need a registry.  I buy gifts for my friends or co-workers that don’t invite me to the wedding.  I think most people are aware of budgets or destinations that don’t allow for everyone to come. 

I think having a shower is perfectly fine especially if it is for close friends and family.  Those people would not judge you and if someone brought up throwing a shower for you then you are ok.

It is totally okay to register for gifts. Many people such as co-workers, acquaintances, and relatives, may still want to give gifts and registering allows them to choose something they know will be of use to you. Certainly, it’s the thought that counts, but when I’m selecting a gift for someone I like to know they will find use for it.

We’re having a DW, invited just over 120 people, expecting about 30 to come. I’m having a bridal shower, and I’m super excited about it.

There have been a lot of people who have asked us about weather or not we’re having some sort of at home party (which we’re not) so they were very excited to get to participate in some sort of wedding related festivities. People really want to be a part of the celebration even though they can’t come to the actual wedding.

We’re not inviting anyone to the shower who wasn’t invited to the wedding though.

We had a destination wedding and I had a bridal shower.  We’re also having an at home reception.  For the bridal shower, we invited people who were invited to the destination wedding (although most of these people were spread apart all over the country) and also some people who were invited to the at home reception.  We put a note on the shower invite that we were having a small destination wedding but that we couldn’t wait to celebrate with everyone at our reception at home.  I didn’t necessarily want the shower but my mom really wanted to throw one so I gave in.  We registered at a number of different stores and no one thought it was odd.
