- Wedding: May 2016 - Ever After Banquet Hall
I had posted recently about my disappointment at apparently not having a shower. 76 days till my wedding and still no one has said anything about throwing one. Yes, I am still disappointed, but I get it. It’s not my first wedding and we already live together, so everyone probably assumes I don’t need one. But, since shower invites are the one place where it is acceptable to tell people where you are registered, this leaves me in the situtation of really having no polite way of letting people know.
This is what I have done. I had created a Facebook group in leiu of sending SOD’s. We really don’t have very many out of town guests and it just seemed like a waste of money. On that page, I put a link to our wedding website for people who wanted more info than just the date and the city. Obviously, our website has registry info as well.
I am just worried no one will look at it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not being gift grabby. Just the opposite, actually. I remember the types of gifts we got at my first wedding (ginormous painting of a pheasant? and no, it was purchased at a store, not painted by the giver LOL) and I don’t want people to waste their money on gifts that we will never use. I would honestly rather get no gift than another pheasant painting LOL
How would you get the word out that you are registered if there is no shower?
