My aunts are throwing me a bridal shower the week of my wedding. The aunt who lives in town asked me what kind of theme I wanted for my shower. I was slightly confused... a 'theme'?..... Any shower I have ever been to never had a theme so I didn't know what to tell her.
She suggested a wine shower where everyone brings glasses or bar utensils that are on the registry and a bottle of cheap wine and we all drink and I get things on my list. She also suggested a bathroom shower but my FI and I didn't put enough bathroom stuff on our list to constitute a shower for those items. Another one that stuck out at me was on the invite telling everyone to bring X amount of money because they were getting one big thing on my list. My FI and I kinda like that one since we want this fancy coffee/espresso maker but we kinda thought it would seem tacky to tell people to bring money on the invite.
She listed off some more choces but I told her I needed to think about it because I really wasn't sure.
Is this more of the norm when it comes to showers and I'm just totally not in the loop? I could I tell her I don't really want a themed shower but I don't want to seem rude since I know she and my other aunt don't have to throw me a shower at all?
I would love input, thanks
