- Wedding: June 2010
I just got invited to a friend’s shower and the invite included a list of places where the bride is registered.
How does one tell what sort of shower is really being held? I went to two showers (other than my own) last year. One of them was mostly lingerie and gift cards. The other one it seemed like every single present was from Crate and Barrel. I wasn’t registered anywhere so people mostly gave me gift cards.
I sent some links to cute monogrammed serving trays (I hate sticking to a registry) to friends in order to split the costs. One of the girls wasn’t sure if I meant a gift for the shower or for the wedding and before I could respond she re-emailed that she clicked through and realized they were for the wedding. (which they weren’t.)
So now I’m just confused. Am I supposed to use the registry as a guide for the shower?
