- Wedding: August 2012
OK, so I’m already married, but we eloped so I really don’t know about the timing of gifts and such. I have not been to a wedding in ages so, yes, I am really asking this because I don’t know!
We have a wedding we are attending out of state early August this summer.
The invitations were sent out in March with a May 1 RSVP so I’ve had this info for a while now. The couple has a bridal registry. Should I buy a gift off the registry soon with less than 2 months til the wedding? Do I mail it to the bride’s house in advance? Or do I bring that to the actual wedding?
Right now, I don’t know of a bridal shower event. Let’s say there is one, and I do get invited. Do I get another gift off the registry for that event? Because gift A is already mailed off? Or just hold off on buying a registry item IN CASE there is a shower event, and then just bring a monetary gift in a card to the actual wedding.
By holding off, and then there is no shower or I’m not invited, we can just bring the original registry item to the wedding?
