So my FMIL’s friend is throwing us a bridal tea. The Future Mother-In-Law first told me that she was thinking no gifts just a time to gather. Well I am okay with that. BUT…
the invitations arrived in the mail this week and no where on them do they say, no gifts. I have had 2 people call me know wanting to know if they are to bring a gift or not.
What do I say? I am going to talk to my Future Mother-In-Law but not every guest is going to call me and ask.

Is this like day of/during wedding weekend? I know sometimes people do bridal teas during the wedding weekend as like a luncheon thing just to celebrate, no gifts, so some people may just assume that.
Honestly, though, sounds like your Future Mother-In-Law should have put “Just your presence, please!” on it or something! they should be calling her, not you 😛 Definitely talk to her.

LaborOfLove- No this is a month before the wedding day. So I think that’s why they are confused. So far the two people who have called are one of my BMs and my aunt.
The invitation says, Bridal Tea in honor of Bride Elect John Doe, Miss Jane Doe. Then has the time, date and address. The picture on the invitation is a water-color of ladies in sipping tea.

Update- So after receiving more calls from guests as to if they bring a gift or not to a bridal tea, I asked the Future Mother-In-Law. She told me no gifts. So there you have it. No gifts. I still think we will have some people show up with gifts because the wording on the invitations is confusing. We’ll see. Either way, I’m looking forward to eating and drinking some yummies! 🙂
