I'm totally not into bridal showers, ugh!
But our families are asking us to register because they want to throw us (me, rather) a bridal shower. And I'm not even sure what to register for? there's really nothing we need, because we've lived together for 6 years, and have stocked up on everything you possibly imagine for our home.
I've heard that couples now a days are registering for travel and honeymoons... which I think would be ideal! BUT my fiance feels that we should be paying for our own honeymoon and not aunt Rosie and uncle Bill... etc. etc.
I just don't know what to do.... I don't see the point in registering for stuff we don't need or stuff that is going to sit in the china cabinet collecting dust. The only thing we could use right now is a new couch, but I can't register for that... I would never hear the end of it!
does anyone had any suggestions?
I'm also not thrilled with the idea of opening gift at my bridal shower... I just find it silly to be surrounded with family and friends and have them sit and watch open gifts when we could be doing something much more fun!
My friends know how much I despise bridal showers so they know not to throw me one, but it's mostly my FI's family that insists in having one... I don't know how to let them know that would much rather skip the 'opening of the presents' part and just have a cocktail party wih music and watch everyone have a good time instead.
