So, I am not a very traditional bride, but I was wondering how often is it that couples throw a wedding shower? I know about bachellorette parties and such but what is a wedding shower? Do you get your gifts there and not at the wedding. Or is it just a party about your wedding?

A wedding shower is the same as a bridal shower: a party someone close to the bride/couple throws to “shower” the bride/couple with gifts. You can’t throw a wedding shower for yourself, as that would come off as very gift-grabby. I associate the term “wedding shower” (as opposed to “bridal shower”) with jack n jill/couples parties.

Usually people will bring gifts both to your shower and your wedding.
