So! Yesterday, I was on the phone talking to my maid of honor and she asked me what type of shower would I like. I told her that since my FI and I have a home, and we really don’t need a new toaster, I would like to have a lingerie party. She was not having it at all! She told me that that was a stupid idea and that it’s not “classy”. She suggested that I register at Target and that she is sure that I would find something I need. I wanted some opinions on this topic because I honestly thought it was a good idea
Honest opinions please!

@unique5109: I wouldn’t want to have a lingerie party personally, but I also don’t think you need to register at target/bbb just because people want to buy you a gift! Have you thought about a honeymoon registry, or registering for electronics or anything on amazon? I’ve done both (but still have a registry for ‘normal’ gifts that I don’t already have: china, stemware).
Good luck though!

First off Hugs….sorry you are dealing with drama over such a small thing…
I think your MOH is a brat or…(insert B word here…)
Is she hosting the shower? If so then she should honor your input or at least try to reach a compromise…not classy…
I think if you want a lingerie party you should have one, as long as it is just a women only shower…if couples shower then not so much…
there are ways to make the lingerie shower classy….and she doesn’t seem to even want to consider doing so…

I don’t see anything wrong with that type of shower. PP is right – “classy” is all in the execution.
It sounds like it doesn’t fit her idea of what you should have. She might be right that you’ll find things you need, but if you really want a lingerie shower, stick to your guns.

I like the idea of the lingerie party.. but at the same time.. I dont think you’d want grandma there… and maybe thats more of what your MOH had in mind.. I do think your MOH is being unreasonable though… it’s your time 🙁
but maybe you can register for nicer things you never bought for yourself but always wanted.. like china and crystal, serving dishes and platters, a new pot and pan set, etc.. (thats what I did, more so because I wanted to always have what people gave us so we didn’t register for many things we’d replace in a few years unless we reallly needed it) for the everyone to enjoy and maybe have the lingerie party combined with the bachelorette party?
Another option that my friend’s MOH did was have a pot and pan party mixed with lingerie.. she put something on the invite like “bring something that gets hot in the kitchen and something that will make (insert FI name here) hot in the bedroom”.. I thought it was cute!
