You could ask for a “stock the bar” shower.  Or a wine shower.  Or just ask for no gifts and for everyone to bring a favorite recipe.  Or you can ask that people donate to a favorite charity intead of giving gifts.

Are you going on a honeymoon? You could start a honeymoon registry. This is what we’re doing since we’ve lived together, on our own for almost 5 years. We’re still planning on having a small gift registry for some things that we would like to upgrade but our main registry will be for the honeymoon.

I’d personally much rather purchase the couple something cool to do on their honeymoon (couples massage, some kind of excursion, night of their hotel stay, etc…) than buy them some mixing bowls.

There are many different theme showers- lingerie, cookbooks, wine,tools,etc.

Pick a room or an activity that you enjoy.

If you don’t need anything, why register at all and even have a shower? Will people buy you things from your registry as wedding gifts? What we typically do is buy from the registry for the shower and give cash for the wedding, but every circle is different. You’ll get a variety of opinions on this, so be prepared! Wink

@Waves2:I’m stuck at home waiting on a repair guy, so I have a lot of time on my hands today 🙂

Maybe you could ask that instead of gifts, everyone write down their best piece of marriage advice (the host could send out pretty card stock), and then you can read the advice out loud, have some laughs, and have some nice things to put in a wedding scrapbook.
