Bridal Shower

Recommended Posts

Hi there! My mom's best friend is throwing me a bridal shower and wanted a list of people to invite. We are having a very small DW (parents, siblings, wedding party and that's all). Should I invited my extended family and other friends who I am not inviting to my wedding, to the shower? I need a single present, as my Fiance and I have lived together for almost two years, so the host was going to put presentation on my wedding shower invite, as we are saving for a new TV for our basement. I don't want people to feel like they have to buy me anything, especially if they are already coming to my wedding, and paying so much money. I don't want to seem like a tacky bride, but I really do not need any gifts. Thoughts?

This is a really tricky situation.  It is always hard to ask for money and most of the time pretty tacky.  People will get you gifts no matter what you tell them, its just human nature.  What about doing a registry for a few things you have wanted to replace or a few things you dont have, then at least there are some ideas for people.

I am in a similar situation although we do need to upgrade some household items.  I looked into the honeyfund - it is a cash registry disguised as a honeymoon registry.  Just pick out excursions, massages and such so people think they are contributing to that but really you get a check in the mail or by Paypal, then make up a story of how much fun you had doing whatever.  I know that it is not honest but whats the difference between them paying for a scuba session vs a tv?  Sometimes what people don't know won't hurt them.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
