@FluffyFTW:

Is she helping pay for your wedding? If so, that might be why?

Is she paying for part of the wedding? Maybe she thought that was her gift to you?

My mom didn’t give me any presents. But she did pay for most of the wedding, so maybe that’s it.

Maybe your mom is waiting to give you something special on your wedding day, or alone, or whatever.  Or, as other PP’s have stated, if your mom is helping with wedding costs, then that would be an awesome gift in and of itself!!  I would relish in the happy memories of the shower, keep the disappointment hidden, and forget about it!!

Don’t worry, my Future Mother-In-Law bought herself a box of mixing bowls from AVON a few months ago and just randomly decided to wrap those for us and give them as our wedding gift.  She and Future Father-In-Law are paying for part of the wedding, though, so that’s how I look at it.

umm maybe your mother just forgot? Idk there is no good explanation, even if she’s helping pay for the wedding, or giving a good wedding gift, she should still give her daughter a little something at the shower don’t you think? You don’t attend a shower empty handed

I agree with the fact that she is helping pay for the wedding, so that is her gift.  My parents are paying for our wedding and I am sure they will not give us an additional wedding gift.  Also, did she host the shower? Because sometimes the host does not give a gift because her gift is giving the shower.

My mom actually didn’t get me a gift for my shower this past weekend either.   She hosted and paid for alot of the shower and her and my dad are helping with the wedding.  I didn’t expect her to get me anything – actually, I sent her gift cards to thank you for throwing me an awesome shower.  Could this be the case for you too?

I wouldn’t take it personally. I think there would be signs other than a lack of gift if your mom was upset with you. I think others are right in assuming that the wedding is the gift!
