    That sucks! My work threw me a “cake celebration” specifying on the invites that “gifts are optional” per my request. There are a lot of new people this year and I thought it crummy tointake them feel obliged to give a present. I thought it hilarious I got one gift out of the whole staff. Usually people get seriously 20-30 big gifts for these showers at work! All I could think was goodthing I put gifts as optional or else I woulda felt bad that no one got me anything or worse they resented me for having to get me something! 

    I would def ask a close friend “did I do something wrong?!”

    I second Angelz’s comment- if you’re especially close to 1 person, maybe ask them what was up once you come back to work.  If you don’t have someone close at work (no big deal, I don’t), then ignore that.

    But for now, its YOUR WEDDING WEEKEND!  Enjoy and have fun!!!!

    Do you have a lot of friends at work? I find it really odd they didn’t throw you a shower. I would be pretty ticked off seeing as you have contributed to everyone else’s parties. If I were you I may start making my donations a little smaller for everyone else’s parties. Also, maybe they are doing something after your wedding. This just seems so weird, and plain out rude.

    I went to a bridal shower thrown for a girl in my team at work.  I thought we were all doing the lunch for her as we weren’t invited to attend the wedding.  I got her a huge gift and went all out.  Then at the lunch I realised I was one of three people there who didn’t get invited.  The other 10 did.

    Talk about awkward.

    If I had known that, I would not of bought her a gift and would not of attended.

    I haven’t attended another work bridal shower since.
