So i''m invited to a bridal shower in a few weeks and the bride is not registerd
. I have NO idea what to get her, so I was wondering if you could give me ideas of some stuff every soon-to-be-married couple would need or want?

Do you know if they''re planning on registering and are just dragging their feet?

As for what every couple would want, I''m not sure. You probably don''t want to hear this, but it depends on the couple. Are they into cooking? Then, maybe some nice pans or knives?

are u totally sure she is not registered ?...some ettiquette states that a "i am registered at..." card is tacky to include in an invite, so the guests ask around to find out if there is a registry. If the answer is still no, i would consider the following
1) gift card (impersonal but useful)
2) items like white towels, nice cotton sheets or linens that are not ''decor specific'' always work
3) if you know where she is going on her honeymoon or what the couple''s hobbies are, you can get her something different like this--sometimes showers have themes to play with...

good luck

Good point. If you haven''t tried it already, you can search for the couple''s registries on The Knot and Wedding Channel''s websites. Try a few of the stores that couples often register at - Bed Bath and Beyond, Crate and Barrel, Williams-Sonoma, Macys, Target, etc.

I would check on theknot.com under their ''registry finder'' to make sure she''s not registered at any of the common places. That search engine looks through a bunch of stores.

If she''s really not registered, I would probably include a gift receipt with whatever I ended up purchasing.

Set of melamine bowls with matching dishtowels and some muffin or scone mixes?
His n hers personalized aprons with a cookbook?

A ceramic-blade knife! Our friend''s wife got him one (the pink breast cancer one,very cute, especially for a husband
) and it''s super sharp and something you might not think to get yourself. We were all jealous of it!

I know for a fact that they are not registered and they don''t plan on it either, which is why i''m confused as to why she is even having one, but thanks for the ideas so far!

Oh and i''d rather not give a gift card since I feel like everyone will be getting them, so I guess I kinda wanted to liven the party and actually giver her something to open!

If you REALLY wanted to liven up the party, you could always give her a cute lingerie set!! There are lots of matching sets (chemise and robe) at Victoria's Secret that are pretty but not too raunchy... in case any conservative relatives will be attending!


ETA -- Example: Satin chemise and robe

Agreed. Include the gift slip, and you really cant go wrong with that!
