Me again- thought of a few more
location – northern England
Showers: NOOOOO! It would be seen as massively gift grabby. I’d be embarrassed to have one thrown for me. Ditto baby showers which according to Facebook seem to be increasonly popular (much to my dislike).
Bridesmaids/ushers attire: If the couple want to insist on something being worn, they should pay for it.
bridesmaid makeup/hair: discretion and depends on situation. I’m offering my bridesmaids to have their hair dobe by my hairdresser buy I’m doing my own makeup to save money (so I’m not about to get someone in for them)
honeyfunds etc: As with money poems, I’d probably have a laugh after the wedding about it. I’m not a fan of asking for cash but I’d rather a couple were straight instead of trying to mask it with cute-ness.
Engagement parties: not a thing generally but I’ve. Known couples throw one of they’re planning a lengthy engagement. No gifts expected at all. If they expect gifts, people would talk.
Rehearsal dinners: not a thing to my knowledge
bridal party duties: turn up on the day and be moral support for bride/groom. Nothing like the job descriptions I’ve read on the bee! Generally best man and maid of honour will arrange the hen/stag night. Best man makes a speech.
Throwing your own hen/stag: acceptable as no gifts are expected I’m having quite a bit of input for my night (I want to make sure it doesn’t get silly expensive or extravagant) FI is leaving it all to best man.
