    I’ve always thought it was etiquette to give them the gifts at the rehearsal dinner and this is what I plan on doing.

    I forgot to give it to them on the wedding day but that was my plan. I know it’s ridiculous to think of doing it on the day but that was my only option because we didn’t have a rehearsal dinner and everyone was flying in from all over. I vote that you should do it at the rehearsal dinner. Bridal shower seems too early for me but the night before the wedding sounds like the best time.

    Definitely the rehearsal dinner. Any gift given at the bridal shower should be to thank the host(s) of the shower.

    Most people do the reh dinner in my experience but I think I’m going to gift everyone their stuff time that’s more intimate. Our reh dinner is around 40 people and I’d rather stick to toasting and thank yous. In such a big setting you really don’t get time with the BMs to see them open the gifts. My brothers reh dinner was big and they said something short about each of us then handed us our stuff and that was that. Very impersonal beside the thank yous

    Typically bridal party and parent gifts are passed out at the rehearsal dinner, if you have one. If not I would say the morning of.

    Rehearsal dinner because bridal shower gifts are considered a thanks for the shower gift.
