Help! I don't want to offend guests
My daughter's fiance is stationed in Hawaii. They are planning a wedding to take place in NY where she is currently living. After the wedding she will join him in Hawaii for a time while he finishes his military duty and then they plan on coming back to NY thereafter. My dilemma is what kind of shower is best for their needs. We are aware that any gift can be shipped to Hawaii but that leaves the problem of shipping them back upon their return. There a few things she can put on a registry that they could easily bring back and of course there is always lingerie.
To meet their needs I must say gift cards would be great. If they could save them and use them when they return it would be ideal.
I thought of a few before wedding ideas such as salon/spa gift certificate and even gift certificate for some fun activity for them on their honeymoon or when they get to Hawaii. My question is how do we word the invite to their needs and not offend their family and friends?
