I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor and I’m throwing my friend her bridal shower. She doesn’t want gifts because they already live together and they’ve had a long engagement, so she really wants donations or anything that will support her in trying to pay for a honeymoon. She’s thinking something tropical..what kind of invitiatons would I get? Has anyone done this before?? Please give me some ideas or point me in the right direction.

@futuremrsojeda: If she’s going somewhere tropical then you should definitely have a tropical themed shower. You can get tropical invites, have leas, and a bunch of fruity drinks. You could have a lot of fun with this! Are you looking for more specific ideas?
However, it’s not really appropriate to have a shower if all she has is a Honeymoon registry – it ends up being a fundraiser for her Honeymoon and would probably not go over well with all of her guests (though I don’t doubt some would be ok with it). Plus, a shower is for showering the bride with physical gifts, not money. What you could ask her to do though, is register for Honeymoon related things, such as luggage, beach towels, beach tote, lingerie. This way guests have the option of getting her a physical gift. You could include a note about how it’s Honeymoon themed and somehow encourage guests to bring stuff the couple can use for their Honeymoon. I’m not sure of the exact wording, but I’m sure you could figure it out or other Bees might have some good ideas.
