Bridal Shower in city far from home

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I am struggling with deciding what to do for my shower because my birdesmaids are throwing it in my hometown on the east coast and I live in California.  I know that I will get a lot of gifts and it would costs hundreds of dollars to ship everything back to California!  Has anyone else had a similar issue?  If so, how did you manage it?


My mom thinks I should just register for small things, but what kitchen/bedroom/bathroom stuff is small?!?  Alternatively, we were thinking of just registering at stores that they have in my home town and in California and then I could just return things and re-buy them when I get back home, but that seems like such a hassle!!


Any advice?  Thanks!

Your invitation should specifically ask to have gifts shipped to your home in CA rather than bringing them to the shower.  Everyone should understand that it's impossible to bring lots of household items on the plane with you!  And for those who are bringing items not from the registry - hopefully they will not be large.  But I would include that information both on the registry and on the invitation to the bridal shower.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
