My bridal shower is March 2nd and I’ve started to receive gifts in the mail. My Mom said that I should open them at the shower. The people who are shipping the gifts probably won’t be at the shower, so I don’t really see the point. I don’t think that the women coming would like to see me open gifts from people who aren’t there. I was just going to wait until I got home after my bridal shower to open them. I have a friend that opened them as they arrived at her house. What did you do?

I would open them and acknowledge them as they arrive. If they will be at the shower, just thank them for their gift and let them know you look forward to seeing them at the shower.

I only had a few so I opened them at the bridal shower.

I opened them as they came so that I could send them a thank you. I received gifts over a month before my shower and I didn’t want them to wonder if we had gotten it.

I only had two things shipped to me, and one of the gifts was sent by mistake. My aunt called me to tell me it was a mistake and she said I could start using it right away. It was a set of towels so at the shower she gave me a candle to open called Fluffy Towels. My other aunt had a coffee pot sent so she told my sister to tell me to look out for it. She was at the shower too so I just said what it was when I opened the card. My shower was a “surprise” though so I wouldn’t have been expected to bring them.
