Hi. I need some opinions. My sister and best friend are going to co-plan my "lingerie shower" however, I have never ever ever wanted a lingerie shower. I don't want my guests, who I appreciate spending their hard earned money on me, to go out and buy me lacy lingerie sets or thongs, etc. I have no issue with these things but I have enough of them already and I KNOW I am just gonna toss them in a drawer. I don't want them to buy me anything that goes to waste. So my sister and MOH are aware of this and they have suggested having a shower where guests are encouraged to buy girly items inclusive to lingerie. Like there's numerous stores in the malls like Bath & Body Works, Lush, etc. We were thinking that even if some people did stick to lingerie that others would actually enjoy the option to shop for other items. Lingerie showers are at-will showers because you normally don't have a registry so guests could buy you something unflattering to your body type, or a color you hate, but at the same time you want to be grateful.
The economy is tight right? I don't wanna stash away any gifts or drop them off at the GoodWill.
Any ideas as to what would be a good name for a shower like this? Is this tacky to change up the traditional lingerie shower for something else?
