My friends mom is planning my friends baby shower. All of her family and friends live here but my friend and her husband recently moved across country. My friends mom emailed me for advice....
"I REALLY NEED HELP with wording the invitations. Since she lives out of town and can?t carry the gifts home, not sure how to word invite politely. How to ask guest to select gift from registry, HAVE IT SHIPPED DIRECTLY OR DROPPED SHIPPED TO HER ADDRESS and come to shower with either gift card or gift photo wrapped in bag or box for her to open."
Personally, I don't really think it's appropriate. I understand it will be a hassle and extra expense for them to get all of their gifts back home but I don't think that should be the responsibility of the guests.
I wanted to get your thoughts and wording ideas, please.
