i wouldnt feel guilty, if a package arrives at my door, im probably going to open it regardless of what holiday or occasion is around the corner. Christmas might be the only one id consider not opening wrapped packages.
they should have sent you a quick text or email, stating they shipped your shower gift early. Personally i dont know if id rewrap all of them just to unwrap them again.
id reach out to them and clarify the confusion and thank them for the gift.
personally i dont get the point of bridal showers. But thats just me.
You are supposed to open them, just not USE them in case you have to return it. You can return a blender that’s been unwrapped (though shouldn’t really throw away the box), but you cant return one thats been used lol.
If something comes to my house with my name on it you better believe I’m going to open it.
Don’t stress yourself out about this, its truly not worth it in the end!
If you’re feeling badly, just take the two gifts to bed bath and beyond and explain at the customer service desk. I’m sure they’ll rewrap them for you right on the spot, no harm, no foul, unless your Fiance has contacted the two ladies in question and told them their gifts were unwrapped.
Like everyone else, I’m wondering how the hell you’re supposed to know the difference between wedding and shower gifts? I had to call my mom and ask about my aunt sending gifts and whether I was to wait for the shower to open them cause it wasn’t clear.
If for some reason, you can’t get the rewrapped, go out and buy two really nice bows or some ribbon and dress the exisitng product boxes up and have your bridesmaids kind of hide them at the back of the pile of gits you’re sure to accumulate as people arrive. Or just wrap them in some really basic simple wedding paper from the dollar store!
You did nothing wrong. Wedding gifts are supposed to be mailed ahead of time and acknowledged as they arrive. If this was supposed to be a shower gift then someone should have told you. Sounds like that someone was supposed to be Fiance, so this is on him. It’s also a risk the aunt took by not bringing the gift to the shower herself.
In the scheme of things it’s not a big deal. I’d just rewrap it and open again at the shower.
