Hey! My fiance and I have lived together for a year now and by the time the wedding gets here (July 2, 2011) it will be for 2 years. We have everything we need when it comes to wedding gifts and any registry we make or have would simply be a waste. (We would really like money for our honeymoon… but we know that this can be seen as tacky.)
My made of honor wants to throw me a shower.. but since I am not registering…we are in need of what type of showers may cater to us! Some have said a couples honeymoon shower in which guests give things need for the honeymoon… but I would like to see if there are other ideas out there!
Please help! Thanks!!!

Wine/stock-the-bar shower? I know I can always use that 🙂 The honeymoon idea is nice, although how much stuff do you really need for a vacation… hmm… is there one thing that you and your Fiance would like – perhaps something on the bigger side, that the entire party could chip in for? I’m thinking of Mrs. Mouse’s Rock Band shower, for instance. A shower is as much about getting all the ladies together and celebrating as it is about gifts.

I think a lingerie, kitchen, or other type of them shower would be best. Any type of shower where people would only be giving you money sort of defeats the purpose of a shower to me.

With a lot of the sites where you register for your honeymoon people can pick things involved with the trip to get you. Like part of your air fare or a massage or just put money towards it. I would look into that more! And you can pick things that you would like to do while there like diving and people can buy that experience for you!
Or like @missasb said an intimate shower would work where you get lingerie.

I had a “honeymoon” shower, and my Maid/Matron of Honor directed the guests to get things that would be appropriate for the type of honeymoon we were going on (beach). I received really pretty summery dresses, flip flops, swimsuits, beach totes, beach towels, travel bags, travel sized toiletries…you get the idea. It was awesome! A girl can never have too many cute, beachy, summery things.
