That''s exactly my concern. Everybody brought a generous gift to the engagement party. I feel like a bridal shower would just be asking for more presents.Date: 3/19/2009 8:38:41 PM
Author: SailorsSweetThe current trend seems to be engagement party for monetary gifts - bridal shower for houseware/registry/sexy underwear joke gifts - bachelorette party to let loose with your girls - and wedding comes full circle back to monetary gifts. Although, I''ve noticed the engagement party is more dependent on heritage and culture than social standard.
Personally, I''m a little uncomfortable with having an engagement party and a bridal party where gifts were expected at both. If they''re going to be giving me gifts for the wedding I dont feel comfortable getting a gift for the engagement and the bridal shower.
