    Are most of you brides having a bridal shower? If so are they for the couple together or just fro the bride? My friend is having one and I don't know what to get her.

        I am having one. Its just going to be for women, I think my Fiance would be board to tears if he had to come! Is your friend registered anywhere?

          Yes she is, but I thought the bridal shower was for sexy night wear. I guess these days its for both.

            I am not having one. I figured that if they are willing to come to Mexico, that is enough. Plus, I really dislike going to bridal showers. I don't think i would find mine any different.
            Wow that sounds really negative.
            Anyway, I have found that the couples showers are more enjoyable. There is not as much sitting around and waiting, and there isn't the opeing gifts show. It's more of a party.

              I would ask the host if there is a theme to the gifts (ie lingerie) or if the bride is registered anywhere and if most people are getting gifts from the registry. My shower was all women and more of the wedding-gift variety. It was mostly for my mom's friends who can't make it to the wedding but wanted to celebrate with me anyway.

                I dont think we will be doing the bridal shower or bachelorette/bachelorre party thing. Like Jenesis, I think asking people to go to Cabo is enough. And I hate bridal showers also, um.. along with baby showers, bachelorette parties, ect.. Like Jenesis again, I dont mean to be negative, I'm just not into them.

                  Oh good. I thought I was the only female who couldn't handle those events.

                    I would be fine with not having one, but my Grandmother & Stepgrandmother have already started planning one for the family, and my friends are going to plan one as well. That said, they will both be ladies only. I feel a little uncomfortable about it given the expense that everyone coming is taking on, but I am just going to roll with it -- it's not exactly like I can say no!

                    Most of the time shower invites indicate what kind of shower it is - such as lingerie, kitchen, hour of the day, etc. If it doesn't it is safe to assume that you should purchase gifts from the registry (registry info is usually included in the invite). If you are close friends lingerie makes a nice gift as well.

                      Thanks ladies for all the advice on the shower. She is my very close friend and is in my wedding. I think I will get her a gift off the registry and some honeymoon gear! I am not really into showers either but we were in a sorority so you know how that goes, any reason to have one too many girls in a room.
