Bridal Shower for Couples who live together?

Q:The bride and groom have lived together for a few years. One of the other bridesmaids said they don't need anything and she doesn't want to throw them a bridal shower for that reason. Should we?

A: There's nothing wrong with a couple who is co-habitating or living together having a bridal shower. Of course, a practical reason for couples not to have a shower is that they don't need anything. However, there's other options: make it a themed shower like stock the bar or lingerie or make it a no-gifts party.  But don't let the fact that the bride and groom are living together stop them from having a shower.

Yep, just because they have already been living together does not mean they don't deserve a bridal shower. Perhaps you can do a pantry shower. You can give the bride some really useful herbs and ingredients to make her pantry loaded with good stuffs.

Agreed!!! And just because they already have stuff doesn't mean that it's not hand-me-downs! They may really be in need of some new things of their own!

We were living together before getting married this October and weren't sure what to do. We had one and it was great to get some NEW items in the house:)
