I would just not open anything, and talk to the hosts about activities so no one feels like something’s missing. If anyone asks, you can say something about the differing cultures or so you can enjoy everyone’s company that day.

@lasagnalover:  Uh, my DH is Italian and I opened the cards at my bridal shower…

Anyway I don’t see why you can’t open the gifts and not the cards if it’s an understood tradition…

I opened the gifts and the cards, and for the cards just read them or gave an excerpt from it out loud. Mix it up in between gifts and it should be fine.
