My shower is a week away and I don’t know what the “normal” or “traditional” things are. Should I give my bridesmaid their gifts (which is jewelery for the wedding) at the shower since they are throwing it for me or should I wait until the day of the wedding?? If I do not give them their gift should I get them a little card or something saying thanks?!?

I am waiting to give my gifts on the wedding day, but I think a sweet thank you note would be nice to give them.

@nicoleshiver: Typically you would give a bridesmaids gift at your rehearsal dinner and ahostes gift at the shower to whomever is the host. If your bridesmaids are also your shower hostess and the necklace is all you have planned to give them (which is fine) I would be sure to At least write a nice thank you note for specifically hosting, separate from anythanks for the shower gift cards.

Bring a hostess gift for whoever’s house it’s at (if it’s not at a house, then a gift for whoever is hosting is still appropriate). If they’re all cohosting, I would give them each a thank you card and a bottle of wine or something like that as a thanks 🙂
I would wait to give the BMs their gifts until either the rehearsal dinner, or if you guys are having a girly mani/pedi/lunch day or whatever before the wedding. We gave all our parents and wedding party their gifts at the rehearsal dinner and it worked out really well to be able to speak to each of them directly to say thanks and give our gifts.
