Bridal Shower

Recommended Posts

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.

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. jiggy.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
