If you still want some sort of present element without the pile of bows, you can ask guests to bring copies of their favorite family recipe, a favorite book, or a favorite photo or memory of them and the bride. (Write the memory down and put it in an envelope, with or without a photo, and let the bride open them whenever she feels like having a happy cry.) And remember, couples showers are Totally A Thing, and you can feel free to ignore anyone who tells you they're not.
What Happens During a Shower: Most of the bridal shower will be spent eating, laughing, telling stories and opening presents. Food can be as simple as light bites, crudités, and sweets, or as elaborate as a themed spread that celebrates the couple. As the bride open presents, have some nice music playing in the background. Make thank_you_note writing easier by assigning someone to write down the gifts and their giver. Fun bridal shower games are a great way to keep the party moving if they're conducive to the event space.
