my Maid/Matron of Honor is trying to plan my bachelorette party. We are unsure as to whether or not she should write in the invites that guests should bring a gift. I would like to have some fun gifts to open, as I’ve been to bachelorette parties in the past that have had this. But I know people are broke now and I don’t want to look like I’m begging for gifts. Should I just leave this off the invite, and if people want to give me a gift they will bring it without being asked?

You might want to leave mention of gifts off of the invites and have your Maid/Matron of Honor start a grassroots campaign for ‘fun’ presents. That way you won’t feel like you’re begging for gifts and no one will feel bad if they don’t bring one.

I wouldn’t mention gifts in the invitation. This isn’t a shower and no one should feel pressure to give you a gift. If you are like me, most of these people have gotten you a shower gift and will get you a wedding gift.
If they want to bring something, great, but in my opinion, putting it on the invitation will make them feel bad if they choose not to.

A bachelorette party is Not really a gift giving event its a fun night out in your honour! I would not put it on the invitation and just have your Maid/Matron of Honor tell your close friends about the fun gift option!

i wouldn’t put it on the invite – hopefully your girls will get you some fun stuff if they can afford it. otherwise, there is tons of fun stuff they can “give” you for free – like designing you a killer scavenger hunt throughout the night or something like that.
