RE: gift card showers
I think it is a good idea. How many people do you know that tell you to register and then nothing on your registry is even purchased? For a bride that is already planning a wedding and probably completely nervous about new beginnings she probably doesn't need extra stress of trucking through the store scanning items that in most cases she already has. As for a gift is from the heart, well....We all know why people have showers anyway. Why not save them a trip to the return line and just let them have fun with their new spouse on a shopping spree. Unless of course you actually have a gift you made or put a lot of effort in because come on how many "gifts from the heart" are purchased on the way to the shower anyway?? I'm going to do a gift card party. To add a personal touch I thought it was a clever idea to create a scrap book for the bride to be. Each guest will create a page. It will be a scrap book party that we bring gift cards to!!!
