    @Princessbubblegum:  That’s really tacky for them to hold a bridal shower and request money.  I would give $5, but I’m a bitch lol

    Wow. I don’t know what I’d do. I never give money, especially at a shower. I’d be tempted to bring a physical gift (I’d probably pick a cut glass serving bowl just for hilarity), but would eventually decide that was too bitchy. I’d probably give $25. Geez.

    Tacky, tacky, tacky!  It’s not a bridal shower if there are no gifts with which to shower the bride with.  That just leads to awkwardness of exactly your question, no one wants to look cheap so they might end up giving more than they would have spent on a gift.  I would give a nice card and be done with it.

    How does that work? Is she going to open the cards in front of everyone? Wouldn’t then everyone know what other people gave? That’s pretty rude! I would give maybe $20.

    RUDE!! I wouldn’t want to go if they are asking for money and I’d probably be a bitch and still just bring a present instead!

    What? A bridal shower, only asking for cash? The whole point of it is opening gifts in front of others!!! Will she open her giftcards and compare who loves her most? Please don’t tell me she is also hosting the party herself?!?! Just because of that I would give her a gift, ha!

    Or even better…give her the requested money in coins 😉

    I wouldn’t even give her any money I’m by her cookbook and write something in it so she couldn’t return it.

    I said 30-50 but I would give a gift with a 30-40 value.  Not cash.

    You said “they’d only requested $”, does this mean the bride asked for it? I was under the impression that the bride didn’t plan/have a say in the shower? Maybe its just the hosts who are greedy/have poor ettiquette? Something to think about…

    @cmbr:  

    Me either.  I don’t reward greed.  It’s easy enough to come up with some excuse, or a last minute illness.  :/
