my cousin just had a shower like this. she didnt get alot of gifts, but some envelopes. i have no idea how much she recieved. i didnt give money but i did give glasses because she said she had been breaking alot of them. so instead of giving money maybe something you know they could use. towels? people can always use towels. or instead of just money a gift card ?

That’s odd…never heard of that before.  I guess they want cash or if you know them pretty well you could give them something that you’d think they’d use.  I dunno O_o

You’re not supposed to give cash for a bridal shower.  I would buy a gift.

Have you checked a few of the more popular stores to register at?  Bed bath and beyond, macy’s, target, kohls, ect?  She may have a registry somewhere but whoever put together the invites left it off for whatever reason.  (all of these stores you can do a quick check on-line)

Definitely don’t bring cash to a bridal shower. I have no idea how it’s supposed to work though if they didn’t register for gifts. I’d probably buy some kind of sentimental keepsake, like a personalized frame or something, in order to still have a physical gift to give.

I would check with the hostesses, they should be able to provide you with more information as to whether or not it’s intended as a money shower.

@AB Bride:  I agree with checking with the hostess! She definitely might have left that off by accident. 

When we threw my SIL’s shower, I had a little card in the envelope with where she was registered. Half of the people lost the card as they pulled the invitation out of the envelope, so they all called me to find out where she was registered! I guess I should have made the card bigger or just printed it on the invitation!

Check with the hostess. She’s probably registered somewhere. Otherwise, you can get her a generic gift at a store like Macys, and the bride can always exchange it later.

Do you know family of either the bride or groom? I would check there – see if they know what the couple really needs or wants.

I didn’t have a registry for my shower.

Some people got me gifts (popcorn maker, clock, picture frame etc) but mostly money/giftcards. I was moving in a week so most people knew to not buy me anything too bulky that I would have to move.

Could you ask the hostess about gifts and what would be appreicated?
