Good morning all!
I am in one of my close friends wedding and this weekend I have a bridal shower to go to. Do I get her a gift from her registry? I am throwing her a lingerie party. Do I get her a gift then too? Then when I am in her wedding, do I get her a wedding gift as well?

Your shower gift can serve as your wedding gift or you can just give a wedding gift at the wedding. Or you can give a gift at the shower and again at the wedding. It depends on your budget and how you want to do it. Since you’re throwing the lingerie party the party itself can be considered a gift.

I would get a gift for any event you aren’t hosting.
That being said, if it was me, I’d probably feel weird going empty handed (even if I was throwing the party), so I’d probably get a gift for the lingerie party too.

I would probably give her gifts for the lingerie party and shower and then just give her a card at the wedding. Or you could get her the lingerie and two smaller things, one for shower and one for wedding.

Since you’re hosting the lingerine party, i don’t think you’re obligated to get her a gift unless you find something cute on sale (there usually are) and you’re within budget. Then i would get her a shower gift but not a wedding gift. Also, since you’re part of the party, where are you going to put the gift/carry it around? And i don’t think anyone would notice you empty handed going into the reception hall.

I would definitely get a gift for each event you are attending (but not hosting…although, I would still buy a small gift for the lingerie party, even though I was hosting). You can decide how much you want to spend on gifts in total and then buy gifts for each event within that budget (so for example, if your budget were 300.00 in total, you could do a 70.00 shower gift, a 30.00 lingerie party gift if you want, and then a 200.00 wedding gift).

My mantra is I generally give how I want to get. If I go to a shower, I give a gift. If I host a shower, I give a gift. When I go to the wedding, I give a gift. I agree with @RhubarbPie:. Do it based on your budget. You can do something small for the shower you’re hosting. Iusually spend less than 100 total on gifts, but I get a gift off the registry or within the theme.

@RhubarbPie: This is a good way to split it imo
I would take gift to all personally
