So I am the Maid of Honor in my sister in law’s wedding planned for July 3, 2011!
She is only registering for a honeymoon so I am looking for ideas on how to plan the bridal shower. I was thinking I could do a honeymoon/tropical theme but are there games, etc that we could do to take up the time, or will it be ok for the bride to open the envelopes/gift cards in front of the guests?
Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

For me personally I wouldn’t want to sit and watch someone open gift cards that are all for the same thing. Plus even if she only has a honeymoon registry, people will probably buy her gifts anyways, so be prepared for that. Maybe you could make it a themed shower like lingerie or around the clock or something so that there’s a theme for the gifts even though she isn’t registered. Then they can just use the honeymoon registry for wedding gifts.

Travel Shower: “Consider dedicating the shower to helping the bride and groom prepare for their honeymoon. Make unique invitations that look like boarding passes or passports with the couples’ picture inside. When you invite guests, tell them to dress in tropical vacation attire if the couple is honeymooning on an island, or dress up if the couple is traveling to Europe. Have each guest bring a gift that relates to travel and the couple’s destination. These could include travel accessories like maps, sunscreen and sunglasses, or travel kits filled with shampoos, perfumes and soaps. Instead of wrapping the gifts traditionally, guests put them inside small luggage as an additional gift for the couple to use. You can play trivia games relating to the places the couples will be traveling, so they’ll have plenty of ideas of where to visit.”

Go for a themed party. Does she like to cook? Have everyone bring a recipe and a new utensil (cause you never have enough of those).
