A destination wedding made a big guest list cost prohibitive and impractical. We would like to have a casual Jack & Jill shower for the bride & groom BEFORE the wedding. They only care to register for items related to their honeymoon (new camera, cruise excursions, etc). It doesn't seem fair to add this additional 'obligation' to the few that are invited, as they will have the extra expense of travel for the wedding. Many people know of the pending wedding and we thought this would be a nice way for them to celebrate too.
