- Wedding: June 2009
FMIL and FSIL threw me a shower on Sunday. Should I have a box of candy sent or something as a thank you gift? I wrote the thank you cards today….they’ll go in the mail in the morning. It’s still recent enough that I can avoid an etiquette faux pas. Is it expected for the bride to give gifts?
Also, my MOH and my mom (honorary helper, lol) are throwing me a shower for my friends to come to next month. Only thing is, I know my mom and my MOH and they’re going to go all out. Decorations, favors, games, champagne, etc. It’s going to be the classic, big deal shower. We basically ate and opened gifts at the shower my FMIL and FSIL threw me. It was kind of awkward for me, some of them women even hung out in the kitchen away from all of us. Nobody had met me yet and nobody really talked to me, save a few people who probably noticed me lingering in the corner uncomfortably. But it’s not like there was a game to get them to at least know a few basics about me. Do we invite FSIL, FMIL, and my FI’s grandma to this other shower? I’m afraid they’ll think I invited them so that they’d feel very *shown up*.
Ok so 1) do i get them gifts? and 2) do we invite them to my second shower?
