i think if you have family saying they want one, but not right now, there is your answer.  it seems like people won’t mind, and would understand.

Well, I think if it was YOU personally making this request, I’d find it offputting. But if your family wants to do it and people will be cool with it, then I see no reason why not. Although I’d refrain from using the words “they don’t want you to have to spend extra money on them during the holidays.” No one is ever obligated to spend money on your for your wedding, it’s just a nice gesture that they do because they like you!

If other people throw you one, there’s not much you can do.  But I think I would call it a housewarming shower.  🙂
