My family and friends are starting to plan my shower and they keep asking me about gifts. My FI and I decided that we didn’t need much since we have been living together for about 3 years and we bought own our place about a 2 years ago. We have decided to go to England for our honeymoon so we have just asked our guest to help contibute to that. My delema now is people are starting to ask me about gifts for the shower. I can tell my family not to get us anything but they will probably will not listen.
Is is tacky to register just for gifts for the shower? I kind of think it is but am I wrong in thinking this and if it is tacky how should I let my shower guest know what gifts to give us?

I think that you should probably register for gifts for the shower. If you don’t need house items, maybe you could do a specialty shower like a lingerie shower? You have to register somewhere since a shower without gifts sort of defeats the purpose. The people who are organizing the shower should include a link to the registry in the invitations to let people know where you are registered.

Are you doing a honeymoon registry where your guests can pay for parts of it? if not then, create a registry @ whatever store you choose & then pass the info out to your shower guests..you can always take the registry down after your shower so that your wedding guests don’t use it…
if you have a wedding website then it would be easy to specify that the registry was for the wedding shower and then post the info for your honeymoon registry if you have one…
