My mother and Mother-In-Law are UBER conservative and I’d rather not open up lingerie and naughty toys in front of them. I’d like to think that people wouldn’t bring them, but I can’t be too sure.
We are going to Punta Canta for our honeymoon, so my Maid/Matron of Honor was thinking of a Fiesta type theme and I was going to request gift cards or purchases from my honeymoon registry.
We haven’t done our wedding registries and I really need to control what gifts are brought in.
Thoughts and feedback, please!

I think it may be inevitable that you get lingerie? Every shower I have ever been to there has been at least one nighty or pretty underwear that the bride got. I don’t know how to tell people that isn’t something you want…maybe some other bees have suggestions. I don’t know if you could just have your family/attendants spread the word?

That would definitely be awkward! I would leave it up to your Maid/Matron of Honor to put the word out that non-lingerie gifts would be strongly recommended, and even explaining that some of the family guests would be uncomfortable seeing lingerie.
If you’re still nervous about it the day of the shower, your Maid/Matron of Honor could even discreetly double check with guests as they arrive, and set aside anything that might be too racy.
I realize this might seem over-the-top for some others, but I have experience with tradiitonal/conservative family members and I’d rather be safe than have that super awkward, disapproving moment!
