Hi Bees, I went to a good friends wedding shower..and i’ll be going on her bach party and the hosts stated their will be a bridal shower now too. So i’m wondering how many of you have gone to 2 showers for the same person…and what kind of gift value would be appropriate? For her wedding shower, I got them some household items. I’m wondering now if i’m supposed to spend the same as the first one or maybe spend more because its a good friend and focus the gift more on her interests. I dont think I want to do lingerie. A lot of girls are invited so Im sure she’ll be getting plenty of sexy gifts.
Anyone been to two showers for the same person? Any other alternative gift ideas? Thanks!

Is there a difference between a wedding shower and a bridal shower?
Unless it is a very good friend, I’d not go to two showers. But if you are really close, I’d go, but I don’t see the need to buy a more expensive present the second time. I would probably just stick to her registry unless you know of something she really wants that isn’t on there.

I would consider a wedding shower to be the same as a bridal shower, and I would only attend one. I would actually find it odd to be invited to more than one, unless you’re in the bridal party.

I thought they were the same thing-one just includes the groom? Honestly, I wouldnt feel pressured to go to the 2nd one.

A friend of mine had 3 baby showers, you know how different groups of friends, people at work etc. like to throw their own showers… I got one gift, my opinion is you only need to get one gift. If you’re worried, bring a card with maybe a homemade peice of jewelry or trinket like that.

I would get a nice card for the shower (no need to get her two gifts) and then I’d get her a gift for the bachelorette, if its a gift giving bachelorette! 🙂

Why is she having another shower? Unless it’s for the other side of the family, or an entirely different group of friends, what’s the need for it?? NO OFFENCE, but it seems like a bit of a gift grab…
Don’t get me wrong, I’m having 2 showers! BUT one is for my friends and family and the other is more of a “Welcome to the Family” with FI’s family. The only people that will be lapsing into both are our mothers, my Maid/Matron of Honor and his sister (Best Woman).
I agree with other’s that you shouldn’t have to bring another gift… she had a shower already.

They are the same thing. However no one should be invited to more than one shower since it’s a gift grab to do so.
