Time to share more of my own wedding details with you!! This time, I’m here to tell you about my bridal shower! It was very small and personal with just my bridal party and close family. It was casual and relaxed and absolutely perfect for me. I got to mingle and spend time with all my closest ladies and I had a wonderful time.
What I really want to tell you about today is my whole experience with bridal shower gifts. As I’ve mentioned before, I had been living with my fiance for almost five years before we were officially engaged. Over the years we came to own most of the things we needed in our home so when it came to creating a registry, we didn’t really have much to put on it.
I know this is a common situation for couples today and can be challenging when it comes to creating a wedding registry. We ended up choosing not to do a traditional registry and instead registered for our honeymoon. I knew not everyone would be comfortable with the idea of a honeymoon registry as it is still not extremely common and I was nervous about it would go over.
Little did I know that my sister, also the maid of honor, had it all under control. While planning the shower she did her research to find alternative options for shower gifts and decided on the perfect option… experience gifts!
As guests inquired about a registry, she kindly told them about the shower theme to “make the first year of marriage one to remember” by giving the newly-weds a night out, a fun adventure, a unique experience. I absolutely loved this idea!! It is a wonderful option for couples who already have the “things” they need for their home. And it is really exciting as the bride to have a whole bunch of fun dates to look forward to enjoying with my new hubs!
