- Wedding: July 2012
Hi There Bees! I’m new to this. I’m having my first and only bridal shower in a few short weeks. Since I’m only having one shower, the guest list is a bit long, however I’m guessing less than half will show up due to living out of the area, other commitments, etc. (We invited around 60)
I’ve been to a few showers in the past, helped throw them even…but now that it’s my turn I am feeling nervous. I want to make sure I act properly, and I have a few questions….
- I plan to be there when the guests star arriving. How did you greet your guests? (I know, this seems like something so simple, but if you could tell me what you’ve done in the past I’d appreciate it).
- When opening gifts, did anyone get anything embarassing? How do you handle it?!
- Lastly, did you find it hard to find a way to say a heartfelt thank you about each gift? I would like to say something sweet about each present other than just “thank you!”
Thanks, Bees, for your help. I look forward to all the responses!
