- Wedding: October 2013
So I need some input on the topic of a bridal shower. A little background: My fiance and I have been dating 4 years, and have lived together for 2 of those years. We got engaged in April 2012 and our wedding is Oct 2013. My mother booked my shower (I know I’m having one, just not when or where ) She recently said how we need to start our registry at some stores so she can send out info with the shower invites.
Here’s the thing! Since we have lived together in an apt for 2 years, we already have staples that people need when they get married for an apartment/house. We are only renting still and plan on buying a home soon after the wedding, so our home items aren’t as nice as what we want for our future house, but they’re fine for now. Once we get a house we will definitely want nicer things. There are some items we definitely want to register for, but it won’t be nearly as much as most people. My friend got married last year and did a Honeymood Registry for her shower, because she and her now husband had a house already and needed nothing. Some pople thought it was tacky, but others agreed with her reasoning. I personally think you should do what suits your needs. My fiance, mother and father all thought at first it was tacky, but after thinking about it don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. Friends tells me, “when it comes to the wedding do whats best for you and J, and f$&% what people think…” lol
I’m not the type to not care what people think, but I also don’t want a registry full of unneeded items either! I would like to do a small registry with what we do need and then the option for a Honeymood Registry where people go online to a specific account and deposit whatever they want. I don’t want to offend people, but I’m very torn.
I need your honest opinions about this, because I have to make a decision soon! Thank you in advance! XOXOXO
