    I am going to have a shower put on by my MOH.

    I was shocked when people started to ask me about my registry so soon, so my FI and I are going to register at Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Crate & Barrel and Home Depot in January.

      I am the odd person out here, I did not want want a shower. I did not want people who were spending a lot of money to come to my wedding to get me any gifts. My bridal party decided they were throwing me one no matter what. Fine, but I refused to register. I felt if I registered I was asking people to buy us things and I did not want them to spend money on us, use that money to come to the wedding. I will admit I had a great time at the shower and I was so happy to see everyone, but still was not comfortable with the gifts part. So, I think its totally a personal thing. If you want a shower and you want to register then you should do that. There are no rules for a DW, we make them up as we go along :)

        My aunts and cousin insisted on throwing me a bridal shower and about a week after we announced our engagement they had already booked the place! Our shower will be September 7, 08 which is two months before the wedding. They are going to send out invitations at least a month before, and told me to invite everyone since those who can't make it to the wedding will probably still come to the shower or at least will want to send a gift. We probably won't register until June or so, but we plan on registering at Lowe's, Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel and Target or Kohl's.

          I wouldn't have had a shower even if we had a local wedding. Just not my kind of thing. I did register though because enough people told me that we'd get presents anyway so we might as well pick them out.

          I think it's OK as long as the emphasis is on having a good time, not presents.
