- Wedding: October 2013
I’m Maid/Matron of Honor at a friend’s upcoming wedding. Co-hosting with her SIL, I threw her a bridal shower back in July (at my own expense, obviously) and gave her a lovely gift from her registry (with card). I’m also throwing and funding her bachelorette, solo, in a couple months. I’ve been invited to her far-out-of-town second bridal shower this weekend, and have made arrangements to go for the weekend with a friend.
My question is: am I expected to give her another gift? Should I buy something small off her registry? Should I just hand her a card, later? I’d really prefer not to spend anymore money on bridal shower things since I paid approximately $450 (including gift) to host her last one and am looking at a similar expense for the bachelorette.
Thoughts? What is the etiquette here? What would you do?
