    The only shower I had was a surprise at work. We did register because people were asking and we had an AHR.

    This is my second marriage, and we already lived together -I would have felt really gift grabby if we had a shower.

      Hi Josie, We have the same situation but we are having a shower..... or should I say party!! The friends that wanted to throw this shower is calling it a "Couples Shower". It is this Saturday and I am so excited. We are doing food and drink (I am helping with all this because same as you, married before... living together... etc) and 70 people have replied to the Evite. It will have beer, sangria, bar-b-que and other sides. FI and I also rented a photobooth so that will add more fun to it.

      AND best of all, we are not going to open gifts at the event. It will just be a big party. We have told everyone coming (about half of the 75) that their presence is enough gift for us but for some reason, people are still wanting to give us stuff.

      We both love to cook and I am always changing our decor. I registered for those things we say we are going to buy one day or things that need replacing and decor items for the house.

      We also registered on HoneymoonWishes.com (recommending by on the the moderators) for things like spa treatments, artwork from our honeymoon and other fun things. I even listed some of our local artsy and wine type places in the shopping section, places we love to shop at that don't do registries.

        I insisted on no shower as well. I am having a kick ass bachelorette party out in the Hamptons though!

          I feel the same way about the traditional bridal showers. We're going to have a "Jack and Jill" party at a park so it will be more like a cook-out where the entire family comes.
