- Wedding: June 2010
I wanted to get some feedback from the hive about a bridal shower vs. couples shower. Fiance and I just bought a house — and our wedding is in about two months! YIKES! The next two months are going to be crazy busy — bachelorette weekend, I have two business trips/conferences, and general wedding stuff. Plus we’ll be out of town another of the weekends for a friend’s wedding. Instead of having a bridal shower, what do you guys think of having a combined couples shower/housewarming party? I have some family who will be in town the weekend before the wedding and I know they’d also like to see the house too. It seems like a good way to “combine” the two — I guess it would really be more of a housewarming party, and not a bridal shower.
What do you think? Or should I have a bridal shower and then we can have a separate housewarming? I feel slightly uncomfortable with that idea because it’s so many occasions “for” me/us — bridal shower, wedding, housewarming, bachelorette party, etc. Do people usually register if it’s a couple shower? I’ve only been to one and they registered. Thanks for any opinions or advice you might have!!
