My fiance and I are also moving.  We kept the shower small, and I am keeping things that I absolutely don’t need right away with my parents.  The stuff I did get really didn’t take up that much room, so I think you should be fine with just a normal shower.

I got mostly cash and giftcards since I was moving. I didn’t specify gifts but people pretty much figured it out on their own.

@asc23:  I’m in the camp that it’s rude to dictate to people what a gift should be comprised of in any situation.  I would just not have much on your registry besides what you want badly enough to move it, and leave the rest to word of mouth and the common sense of your nearest and dearest.

If you’re into games or something, that can fill some of the time, otherwise, I usually find most women are happy to hang out and chat/eat/drink.

Yes.  I think it’s rude.  Both of my bridal showers were out of town.  At one shower, they sent most of the gifts to my home and I had to rent a car to bring home gifts from the other shower.

I live away from most of my friends and family.  I couldn’t transport everything so I didn’t have a shower.  I agree that you can’t dictate gifts.  You either have to figure out how to get things to your new place, or not have a shower.

The other option is to use a national store. Ask people to buy/pay only online and pick up the items at a store by your house, or have them shipped to that store.
