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.
Planning a Non_Traditional Bridal Shower: For some people, sitting around in a circle playing cheesy games and watching someone open gifts for an hour sounds like a grand old time. But if you're among the many for whom that sounds like a total nightmare, don't worry. The non_traditional bridal shower is here to save you.
