Wedding gifts – probably one of the most controversial topics when it comes to weddings. 20 years ago gift etiquette was quite simple – you are invited to all 4 showers? Bring a gift to all AND the wedding. In my opinion, that is no longer necessary. Most guests are not invited to every single shower – the people who run into this are family members and the wedding party. If there is more than one shower, there is a good chance one of them is a bridal shower and one is a couples shower (there could be one couples shower and 4 bridal showers!) – my rule of thumb would be to take one gift to the bridal shower and one gift to the couples shower. Even though there are 3 other bridal showers, this should suffice. And of course, a wedding gift. That is a tradition I don’t believe should ever be sacrificed.
I write this on my wedding planning page mostly so you Brides out there can read this 🙂 The only way this is possible is if you are on board and make your wedding party feel comfortable with this!
