My future SIL is throwing me a "stock the bar" shower.
How do we word this on the invitations?
or more pointedly, how do i convey what that means (to people who will be confused).
My initial idea was a "wine shower". And truth be told, I would really love it if people would just bring one modest bottle of wine to this thing - simple and inexpensive. Nothing extravagant or excessive (and i'm thinking maybe this can be expressed via word-of-mouth???)
However, I want to be sensitive to the fact that some people (like non-drinkers) may not even want to purchase and give booze - at all. that's why my initial idea of a wine shower turned into a more broad "stock the bar" shower - to include beverages of all kinds, and drink ware, accessories, etc. (I have also registered for coffee and tea.)
anyway, i don't know what i'm saying... i guess i'm wondering how to handle this well, on the invitation. for the people who will be confused or not know what to bring. to make it easier on them.
Do we JUST write "you're invited to a 'stock the bar' shower!", and leave it at that?
or do we include any info about what TYPES of things this (ideally) includes?
I want to be polite and correct about this. i hate it that i'm even forced to "troll for gifts" from family and friends in the first place, ugh!
