I don’t like this idea as a guest.

I guess so but I wouldn’t watch or do either of those. Can’t you throw a shower with SOME people that are near? Invite all of them even if they are far and if they cannot come they can decide to give or not give a gift and of course the bride will obviously send a thank you card for every gift recieved.

I know it’s hard when so many people won’t be able to attend but isn’t there at least a few local ladies that could make it?

OR have the bridal shower very close to the wedding make it short and sweet, but at least more ladies might be able to attend by making just the 1 trip.

Does anyone have a webcam?!

My mom’s friend had a baby shower and hosted it online via her webcam so some of her friends around the country could be there! =) or at least to watch her open gifts, see all the decor/details as well as her friends being able to see her all pregnant and cute! Just a thought! =)

I guess in my opinion you simply cannot. You BM’s and maybe the moms but that’s probably it. If any other ladies inisit on giving you can kindly give them addresses and all that but I don’t think you can “invite” them to send a gift in the way your describing. Ask the other BM’s to go in on a gift and surprise her.

Tough on though.

What about having the shower right before the wedding, like the day before when people are all in one place for the wedding? As a guest, that’s not my favorite thing either b/c you have to buy two gifts really close together, but I think that would be more appropriate then being asked to send a gift with no real shower.

Can you have a shower right before the wedding? I know things are hectic a few days before…but can you host a breakfast, brunch, cocktain reception…anything? Its tough when people are spread all over the place but I cant think of another way to make this work.
