@JRG: If your Fiance doesn’t want to do a couples shower, why not just have a regular shower with just the bride and close girl friends?

You could just have a pre-wedding party, but are you planning to register? If you don’t expect to receieve gifts then this could be an option.

You could give it a theme and have people bring gifts that fit the theme, like a “Stock the Bar” party or “BBQ” etc.  The problem is, if the goal is to get gifts from your registry, you may need to call it a shower so that people understand the point of the party.  He may just have to get over it 😉

We are having a party/shower because there are friends and family that can’t make the trip to the wedding and we want to allow them a chance to share in the day with us. Not 100% sure what the invite will say, but it will probably be called a “wedding celebration party”. I think that allows people to bring stuff if they’d like, but also not obligated. If you don’t put where you are registered in the invitation, I think people are less likely to feel like they have to bring something… BUT opens you up to random gifts too. You just have to weigh the pros and cons. Ask FH what he’d like to call it.
