Our Take: If you're one of those people who traditionally takes over the bridal shower duties, assess your boundaries and capabilities. What are your financial (and time and effort) limits? Make your line in the sand and stick to it. Communicate what you can and can't accomplish__to the couple, family, other party members, or anyone else who might fall into unreasonable and over_demanding zones. Enlist help when you need it, whether it's making favors, hunting down RSVPs or doing food prep. And yes, it's probably still best not to invite people that aren't invited to the wedding, because ouch.
Beach Theme Shower: If the bride loves the beach, a beach themed shower is perfect for her, setting her up with gifts she can use on her favorite outing. This can be hosted, literally, as a beach party when the weather is good, or with beach themed decorations in someone's home. Perfect party favors might be: sunscreen; beach ball; beach towel.
