I am eight hours away at school and am finally home after not being able to come back home since January (I’ve been student teaching, with no time for much else). I just got to do my registry the other day. For ease, we only registered at Bed Bath and Beyond.
How do I hint to my maids of honor that a shower should happen fairly soon in a way that doesn’t come off as greedy? The wedding is in about two months so there’s a very small window unless we just get all the gifts at the wedding.

If they wanted to host a shower, I’m sure they would say so.

If you feel like you have to hint it and can’t just outright say it, then you already understand that it’s something that cannot be said without being greedy.

“Unless we just get all the gifts at the wedding.”
Registries are suggestions, not requirements or demands.

It’s more of a planning and space thing. We are moving from Massachusetts to Buffalo right after the wedding. We’ve talked about the logistics and getting thank yous before the move being almost impossible.

11mikesgirl21: You can’t.
Showers are a party thrown in your honor by people who choose to do it. It’s not a requirement or somthing you are owed or get to oversee. If they are planning a shower, the details are theirs to plan and they may or may not ask for your input.

If they wanted to throw you a shower, I’m sure they would have said something by now.
and I’m not sure what you meant by “all the gifts” at the wedding, but you don’t get double gifts at the wedding if you hqd no shower.
Let it go and enjoy your wedding.
