I would just like your thoughts on a money shower. Me and my fiancee are moving in together about 9 months before our wedding, so we will have most of the stuff that we need. I just dont think its fair, that I have gone to dozens of showers, and then not have one myself?? A money shower would make most sense for us. What do you all think?

Thanks for your thoughts - I appreciate it.....the only reason I have considered it is because I have been to a money shower myself. I have thought of just not throwing anything but I keep getting invited to showers, stag and does etc. and have spent so much on people. I am torn.

My fiance' and i live together already in a house and pretty much have everything.I think you should def still have a shower,it's always nice to get new stuff.You could always put the stuff away and break it out at later date.I've never been to a money shower.Maybe give people the option,

Could you have a something else kind of shower?  A wine shower?  A stock-our-liquor cabinet shower?  A lingerie shower? 

 

On the other hand, I think you could come up with stuff you want- new linens, seasonal items (holiday platters, etc.), tupperware...

 

I agree with the previous poster- I think a "money shower" is a bad idea.

Ok. Looks like its a bad idea.....Either I will find items to put on the registry (you are right, you can always use new things) or I just wont do anything at all.  I wasnt going to have a shower at all until some of my family told me I should.

I just think it implies that you only want money from guests, which can seem a little harsh. If you have a bridal shower then guests can choose to either buy you a gift or money.

CanadianLindsey, I totally agree with you. I am not personally a big fan of the whole shower idea especially if you dont particularly need the help. If it were up to me I wouldnt have one. If I do have one though, I will definitely choose gifts on a registry. Thanks for all your thoughts and opinions!

Or maybe you could have a shower and include a "cute" little note that kindly explains your situation (i.e. that you are already in an established household) and suggest "if a gift is a must, we prefer gift cards or financial donations to help us with our new union."..just an idea! Not sure if the wording makes sense, was trying to recap what I have recently read on a wedding invitation and it was worded in good taste. Again...just an idea!

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
