So, I’ve never been to a bridal shower before, so I have a question…is the bridal shower where people shower you with your wedding gifts, or are these gifts completely different?
And yes, I realize it’s a little odd I’ve never been to a shower before. I’ve also never been to a bachelorette.

Where I’m from, people usually bring a gift to a shower and another gift, or money, to the wedding. 🙂

The gifts are different. At least in my area if you bring a gift to a shower you still bring a gift to the wedding. Usually wedding gifts are smaller items, whereas at wedding you get larger items and cash.

Same here. Bridal showers, yes you get showered with gifts.. Then people generally dont come empty handed to the wedding itself.

The rules differ by region and social group. Some people only buy one gift, so if they give it at the shower they just bring a sweet card to the wedding. Others think you should give for both.
