DesBride:  I think it depends regionally where you are from and what customs are considered the “norm”. I live in the north east part of the country (NYC metro area) and the bridal shower is specifically for registry gifts! Some might bring lingerie, but I think that’s mostly for the bachelorette party if your girlfriends want to give you that. I mean how much lingerie can a girl use?

At weddings we give $. I know some people will give an expensive item off the registry as a wedding gift, but it’s mostly registered items for the bridal shower and money for the wedding. Hope that helps!

In my experience, registry/home gifts are given at the shower. I made sure to include many items in the lower price range on our registry for this purpose.

I am with you, the bridal shower is usually registry gifts though of course plenty of people go off-registry which is fine. I often get lingerie for a bride to be, but not everyone does!

Around here bridal shower is for “home” type gifts and most people give money at the wedding. I think it’s very odd to bring lingerie unless it was specifically that type of shower.

DesBride:  My Maid/Matron of Honor included my registry info on my bridal shower invite. In my area, bridal showers gifts come off the wedding registry. I’ve never been to one where you give lingerie – how embarassing. Also, we don’t do lingerie at the bachelorette party either.

I went to a bridal shower last year, where a couple of her friends bought her lingerie. I’m glad there were no kids there. She held up the first “item” and the groom’s grandmother clutched her pearls. I’ve heard that phrase before, but have never seen anyone really do it.

DesBride:  In my area bridal showers are always registry items, but it’s also not typical to be throwing your own bridal shower.  IMO, someone else can list registry info on an invite if they’re hosting the shower, but the registry info coming directly from you for your own shower seems off.

2XMOB:  oh my goodness that would be embarassing!  I’m glad no one did that at mine.  For my bachelorette party, my two roomies from college went to goodwill and got all this ridiculous lingerie and put tags on each of them saying what they were for.  For example: a mumu with a tag that said “for when DH is in the doghouse.” and a ridiculous 80s jumper/thong thing.  I can’t remember the tag for that one but it was hilarious.

I’ve been to another bach party where we all gave lingerie and stocked the bride up with all new stuff.  But definitely never at a bridal shower!  Don’t want to open that stuff in front of my mom, thanks.

You know when I was at a bridal shower where the gifts were mostly lingerie? For a bride moving overseas. lol, the Maid/Matron of Honor wrote on the invites that gifts should be lightweight 😉

DesBride:  Yep, and one roomie decorated the box all awesome.  Definitely saving it, but definitely not trying on any of the lingerie any time soon ;).  It will be a great mimento though!
