My FI and I registered for our honeymoon because we have all of our small essentials, ie. dishes, glasses, linens, etc. But my MOH, my sister, insisted on having a bridal shower for me. My only suggestion was to have a "Stock the Bar" party. At first my sister was intimidated about the idea not being a traditional shower but it turned out great.
When entering the shower we were greeted with a glass of wine, socialized for a bit, and then began eating a nice spread of finger foods. Our server created four classic cocktails; Kir Royal, Tom Collins, Side Car, and a Classic Vodka Martini. We were suppose to end with a Manhattan but after four cocktails we all had our fill.
In between cocktails, I opened gifts focused on preparing my FI for a well rounded spread of a bar for entertainment. We received a variety of liquors along with wine. I grew up in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York so I anticipated a lot of wine. I am very excited to have so many local wines from my home region to entertain with down in Virginia. I am very proud of my roots and love to share one of my favorite aspects of the area.

I love that idea for a shower! If FI and I didn't need basically everything, I would have wanted to do an awesome shower like that! Glad you had fun!
