@Amani: Could you do a gift card party? Maybe if you wrote on the invite because of her travel/distance problems, you’re doing a card party. Or maybe if she did a honeymoon registry people could get her and Fiance spa treatments, beach rentals, etc rather than gifts? Or ask that if they really want to give a gift, they be travel size (like an airplane kit of magazines, gum, crosswords, etc). I know when my best friend got married, I was really careful to keep in mind that she needed to fly everything home as she lived across the country. As a joke you could get her a suitcase to put everything in! LOL!

This will be my problem.

Is she registered at Macy’s?  Macy’s will allow you to bring the items back, “return them”, and then buy them again (will have to pay tax though) and they will ship them for free to her locale. My Future Sister-In-Law was able to do this so.

I’ve heard of gift card parties and then the bride takes pictures of what she purchases with the gift card and sends it in her thank you!

I like the theme party – you could have everyone bring a recipee or a bottle of wine.  You could also incorporate that into the gifts that people ship.  That way she’d have something to open and do!

Or, you could ask the guests to bring a card to the shower but have the gifts delivered to the bride’s family .

They could also  print out pictures of the gift to include with their card. 

Or they could send you a link to a picture of the gift.You could collect them in a folder for the bride to open one at a time.

The bride’s Mom can SKYPE into the shower, open the gifts and show them to the bachelorette party guests online.

I like hte skype idea, I think that could be fun (maybe even have everyone bring a clue about their gift for her to open and make like a little game of it, then have mom reveal what the “real” presents are?
