My fiancee and I were discussing my bridal shower (I was putting together a guest list for it to hand to my BMs), and he blurted out that he had always thought that they were in poor taste. I always thought that they were the norm, it never occured to me that some people might feel differently.
Anyway, he started asking me about the gifts, and I wasn't sure how to answer his questions. Typically do guests of a bridal shower shop off of the couple's wedding registry? Do they generally give a gift for the shower AND the wedding itself, or just one?
Lastly, I've heard of theme bridal showers. You could choose a lingerie-themed one where all your girlfriends get you something cute for your honeymoon, or a kitchen/cooking-themed one, etc. Has anyone had a themed one and what theme did you choose?
