I guess the underwear is a little funny- but it looks like your overseas and maybe it’s not too different where you are! I think the gifts are super personalized and cute. Your bridal party is lucky to have you!

@vicarswifeintraining: It defintiely not just a UK thing – don’t worry! As I said, I got a thong from a bride once as part of our gift and all of the BMs loved it. And we threw a different bride a lingerie shower and I’m being thrown one too! I don’t really see why people seem to think it is so odd.

So I guess there were two reasons I thought it was a bit odd.
1) If you guess the size wrong, but it sounds like both of the girls are close to you
2) You’ve already had some trouble in his church and it just seems like something that could cause gossip if someone says something about giving knickers to the guy. Just seems like easy gossip fodder even if it’s offbase.

@troubled I’m sure that if any of my FI’s parishioners did ask what my BM’s got as a gift I doubt they’d say about the knickers, or if they did they’d have the good sense to choose to tell someone who would find it funny – not creepy!

I don’t mind the underwear. I think if they’re cute (rather than something slutty and racy) then it’s fine. I always wear boyshorts or the ones that look like men’s underwear around the house and to sleep in so I think it’s no different than getting them some sort of lounge-wear.

I think the idea of the underwear are cute. Like camrie said, they aren’t out of control so it’s a nice gift.

Very cute! I love those boxes!!! I’m not sure though about the guys underwear….I would maybe go with a funny pair of boxers.
