Wishing Well

Are wishing wells still popular for bridal showers?

    I dunno if they are popular but I had one for my shower. I also registered for a lot of smaller kitchen gadgets so that was a good way to get those types of things.

    The past bridal showers I've been to have had them. So I would say yes they are.

    I went to a shower that had one and felt bad I didn't bring anything for it because I had NO idea what it was!

    My mom did a bar-themed wishing well, since MH likes craft beers. We mostly got coasters, wine charms and bottles of wine.

    I haven't seen one at a shower I've attended as a guest lately.

    Probably, although I only once went to a shower with a wishing well -- and that was in 2002.  And I've been to plenty of showers in the 8 years since...

    I'm glad there wasn't one at my shower.  I had had my own kitchen for 5 years, so I had all the random kitchen stuff I needed.  I think they're much more useful for girls moving straight out of their parents' house to their marital home.

    every single shower I have been to in the last 10 years has had one, so I would say yes they are still popular.

    The only one where I have seen one done is at my cousins. Since then I haven't seen them. If you still want to do one then go ahead. It seems that they are still popular from what PPers have said.

    Themed wishing wells are so much fun!
    I have seen bar ones, grill ones, wine ones.....
    At my shower they gave me a scratch off ticket wishing well ~ it was awesome and we won $160 total from it! Much better than dollar store sponges! =)

    I recently went to two showers and they had a honeymoon wishing well theme so the bride got sunscreen/cover ups/flip flops/ underwater disposable cameras.  A lot of the little things that add up.  Another one was a wishing well for the Groom and it was all tool supplies, which i thought was definitely different!
