Perhaps find out if anyone else is contributing anything to the shower – help setting up, cleaning up, bringing food, etc.  Make sure you tahank them seperately for the help they are providing and not just a gift.  It’s a small thing, but the gesture will be greatly appreciated.

I have helped set up and clean up at a wedding shower, as well as bring food and I barely got a smile from the bride, let alone a thank you!

And make sure one of your bridesmaids (or anyone that offers) are making a list of who the presents are from, it will make writing out thank-you’s so much easier!

not really. act excited about every gift. don’t acknowledge if there are doubles (unless someone points it out) if you already have something. after opening a gift I personally made a point to make eye contact with that person and thank them.

@sorrycharlie:oh, thanks for pointing that out about doubles! I’m one of those people who would totally probably forget how awkard that would be, and would end up putting my foot in my mouth and being like, “oh weird, how’d I get 2 of these?”

Bring a hostess gift to the gal throwing the shower.

This might seem obvious, but I recently went to a bridal shower for a friend. She wore a short-ish dress and was basically flashing her guests while opening gifts. I would recommend being very aware of how you’re sitting while opening gifts, and how your outfit looks from the front while you’re sitting.
