Good morning, wedding experts
I would appreciate your opinion on my following dilemma: my fiance does not want to have any wedding registries. Honestly, I don't care either way. We are both in our thirties, have the crap of two full households....and I think I need a yard sale more than a wedding shower. However, I also think it is more convenient for the guests to have a registry rather than wondering what to buy (and us ending up with 10 toasters....of course, they can always get re-gifted). On the other hand, I don't want to argue with the love of my life over something as ridiculous as whether to register or not.
One of my bridesmaids wants to throw me a bridal shower, and I don't want to rain on her parade but is there a point in having one without all the gifts? I don't want to offend her (and I will if I tell her I really don't need one) but at the same time, wouldn't it be awkward if we all just sit around without a big gift-opening session? I don't know much about weddings, and I am learning as I am planning, so please excuse my ignorance on the matter!! Let me know what you guys think, maybe I am having the wrong approach towards the bridal shower? Thanks!
