My Maid/Matron of Honor and I have been discussing what “type” of couple’s shower she will be helping host along with the rest of the bridal party and wanted our input on what we would have fun doing. In our area couples shower’s with a “purpose” are pretty common and expected. For example most couples have a liquor and lingerie shower or a garden shower.
The issue that I am having is that I don’t wear lingerie; I’m a T-shirt and shorts kind of gal. So I would never use the lingerie if I received any and Fiance and I both are not big drinkers. With the garden shower we have owned our home together for almost 3 years so we are pretty well set in this department.
My Maid/Matron of Honor has suggested a shower them that she found somewhere such as First Year Entertainment or Must Do’s. This would open up the door to people bringing things that they think we should do in our first year of marriage. This could be anything from a gift card to a restaurant, popcorn tub with a movie in it, scented candles and massage oils, your favorite recipe written down with a fun apron for him/her, or a board game and bottle of wine. I just don’t want to come off gift grabby at all! I just feel like this would be really fun to see what every one would come up with.
What do you guys think? If you received an invite like this would you automatically assume that we just wanted stuff or would you want to get creative and come up with some fun stuff for us to do?
