they will probably bring gifts if it is a shower. you could make super cute picnic theme invitations with red gingham! That sounds like a lot of fun.

Are you throwing the shower for yourself or are your BMs doing the planning? If I was invited to a shower by BMs for a couple I would bring a present, no matter where it was. Now, if I was invited by the bride and groom to a picnic I probably wouldn’t, just because it wouldn’t be a shower. Cute idea though. I saw some really cute invites that were letterpressed or gocco’d on a brown paper lunch bag. So cute!

what is ‘jack and jill’?  does that mean co-ed?

I’m with KateMW on this one.  If a family member or some friends are throwing you the shower, then guests are usually more likely to bring a gift.  I think if you are throwing yourself the party, guests may be less inclined to bring a gift.  Because etiquette allows, you can definitely include the places you and your Fiance are registered on the shower invite as a reminder to guests.  Just keep in mind that gifts are not required, they are just a nice gesture.

@FutureMrsMorgan:  A Jack and Jill shower is basically a co-ed shower where couples and a family and friends can attend.  It is a more modern take on the traditional wedding shower and are popping up everywhere.  I personally think they are a much better idea, because it is a way to include the groom.
