Did you have a theme for your bridal shower? Do you like certain themes over others? Or would you prefer a general shower?
I’ve never been to a themed shower, but have been asked if I’d like my shower to have a theme. I just don’t want to “force” guests to buy me a kitchen gift if they’d really prefer to buy sheets. Is that silly? On the other hand, I can see where having a theme would be really neat!
I’m interested in perspective from you as the bride as well as you as the guest.

Oh — and if you pick lingerie shower… how is that not incredibly awkward with your grandmas there?! My mom suggested I have one, but that’s just so awkward to me.

I am having a theme shower in terms of the decor and stuff… it will be Chanel themed 🙂
The presents though, will be purchased off of our general registry.

My shower has a theme unrelated to gifts (Mad Hatter Tea Party)…but like the PP above, the gifts will all be purchased off the general registry.

Well, my shower was themed as far as decor and stuff, but not for gifts. People gave me all sorts of stuff at my Princess-themed shower. See, I mentioned to my sister once about how so many women are all “I want to be a PRINCESS on my wedding day!” but i’m just not like that. Could make a good party theme though! And she ran with it. Even found a cute Bride tiara for me to wear.
I think most of the guests thought the theme was really fun.

Bridal showers that have decorations/dressing up themes make for cute pictures. I don’t really like gift-themed showers.

Do a linen shower! I got too much kitchen stuff and not any linens! It’s perfectly fine, btw. 🙂
