Bridal Shower Question

Recommended Posts

This is a really tough one. Personally, I wouldn't be too thrilled about going to a shower, paying for my dinner and bringing a gift. Wording will be everything, and I'm not sure how it is going to work for you. I agree that, it should be hosted at someone's house. Just have some snacks and drinks, and the shower theme would work perfectly fine.

I know that what your hosts are doing isn't considered proper etiquette, but really people do things so many different ways now- is there really a right or wrong?  I think that as long as you are a genuine person and your shower guests know that you truly appreciate their being there to support you and their generosity....well then, they shouldn't mind paying for a meal.  Would you do the same for them?  If the answer is 'absolutely', then hopefully they feel the same. 

Hope you have a great time with lots of great ladies!

Thanks and your so right these days people do all different type of things that aren't proper etiquette and things change which is why.  I'm over it and too excited to worry anymore my shower is this coming Sunday and I know it's going to be great.  I know my guest will enjoy themselves and love the giveaways my hosts have gotten for them.

It seems like this is becoming more common.  I have been invited to a few bridal showers that were at restraunts and I have chose not to go to a few because of the price.  I think that guests will either come if they want and pay the price or they won't.

i am only wondering if guests know they have to pay??   what if they think "oh cool, its a shower, so the meals are covered  by the host".  that is the only thing i would worry about.  i wonder if there is some way to let them know without being tacky about it. like let them know that buying a meal is optional since they are paying...

The guest knew that they had to pay and that it was optional a few guest came and didn't eat and it was cool.  Over all I had a wonderful time and everything turned out beautiful I think I was stressing for no reason looking back now.  Since everything turned out so great I cant say that I would want anything different.  I'll try to post some pics!
