As you said in your last post, I'd just repeat to your MOH....sexy lingerie!!
I'm fearing the same situation as my shower approaches....I can already see it....but like you, I'm going to say "If you insist on getting me a gift, lingerie please!"
Let us know how your shower turns out!!

Like I said, if its something you think I should have or want me to have, then great! I just hate telling people what they should get me...and the reality is that at 31 there isn't a whole lot that I "need" other than an affordable home to buy!

I'm going to go against most of the people here.... Yet, I definitely do not think you are a bad bride!!
I'm such an advocate for registering, regardless of wanting gifts or not. I really think that most people do not understand non-traditional weddings. We decided to register after my hubby's parents decided to throw us an AHR. After both of us living on our own and having our own houses, and then combining both, we barely have room for any extra stuff. We knew that the AHR guests would give us gifts, and we would rather have those gifts be things we need/want than random gifts. Some of the guests did not give us things off our registry. It was still very thoughtful and truthfully sometimes some very nice gifts, yet since they don't know our taste, it typically did not match our decor, etc... We seriously still have no clue what to do about some of those gifts.
Why not do a very short registry at someplace that has very flexible return policies, like Bed Bath and Beyond? That way you can always get cash, if you decide to return your gifts.
We are still getting questions from some of our friends that attended our wedding in Cabo regarding what we want for gifts, etc... We keep telling them to not get us anything, that attending the wedding was more than enough, yet they insist on getting us something. Seriously, I really think that it is just engrained in the mind of a guest that they MUST send you a gift. Why not avoid the hassle of the questioning?!?

But, my MIL to be, has been giving me a hard time about the shower.
And I was told by someone else that it was *selfish* of me to not register!!! How ridiculous... something about me thinking I'm too good for people's gifts!!! I couldn't believe it. So, I don't know what to do now...
