Hey girls!! I was talking with one of my bridesmaids today about starting to think about my shower, and she simply replies "Please just promise me you'll do the un-wrapped gifts thing...watching brides open gifts is complete torture!" ... and it sort of made me uncomfortable. I have been to ALL of my friends showers, I KNOW how boring it can be, but she is so set on me doing a "Display Shower" and I am feeling sort of uncomfortable with the whole idea.
For those who might be new to this, a display shower is when you ask guests to bring their gifts not wrapped with a card that identifies who it is from, therefore taking away the long process of unwrapping gifts one by one. I think I might hate this idea!?! I sort of feel like then it really does become the whole idea of "ok, bring me gift..don't bother wrapping it...i'll just take it home."
Anyway, she asked me to bring it up to my Maid of Honor, but I don't think I really even want to consider it?
In addition, she is like dead set that ALL bridals showers need to have alcohol and that she has never been to one that hasn't had it...so she is pushing for that as well. While I have never been to one that has had alcohol, I'm not apposed to having it, but if its in my church, its not possible.
So ultimately...I would love your thoughts on the whole concept, but I would also LOVE some other suggestions on how to maybe switch something up from the norm and try to figure out a way to keep everyone entertained throughout the whole party!?
Any feedback would be great! Thanks so much!!
