So I have been thinking of having a green shower (one where people don’t wrap the gifts and just put them on display so people can look at them at their own leisure and not watch me open gifts). I had been thinking of doing this for several reasons: environment (every little bit helps, right?), my personal discomfort with being center of attention and having people watch me open gifts, feedback I’ve heard from many people my age that they really don’t enjoy the opening gifts part of the shower (no one said this specifically about my shower or in convo about my shower, just in general).
My concern mainly is that my mom and some of the women of the generation above me won’t be happy with it. And since my mom and stepmom are throwing the shower (I know that’s not supposed to happen, traditionally speaking but they are), I want them to be very happy at it.
Have you all heard of this before? Or been to a shower like this? Thoughts? I’m not opposed to having a more standard shower but I am open to this idea too.
