Bridal Shower Gifts Using Household Items
What is the difference between a bridal shower gift and a wedding gift?
My friend is getting married soon, and today I received an invitation to her bridal shower. It is an evening event in a park. (So nothing wild) Invite says they are registered at Target and a local bridal shop (unfortunately I'm out of state to the event.) But people use the same record for both? Because it was Like all household items in the registry ... So is there a difference between the gift for the bridal shower and wedding gift, or should I just buy things for two out of the registration?
There is no difference between a bridal shower gift and a wedding gift, unless a shower gift is given in a shower and a wedding gift is sent home or given to the person at the wedding. The shower gifts are typically purchased from the same record as wedding gifts. For the shower gift is can buy something you know that the bride specifically like / use (for example, if registered for any movie, I could buy the one you know to girlfriend likes .... or if you would like to go camping, I could buy a tent or sleeping bag found in the registry, etc..) As always (with a wedding or shower) you can always purchase a gift that is not in the registry - in my shower I have a lot of picture frames and other items that were not on my record, but still liked it. I think that maybe you could be confused with showers showers. (Showers are usually not "wild", so that should not surprise you .... in fact, the showers are usually in the hands of elderly relatives .... and people tend to LE DOY household items to the shower, so that should not be surprising either ..... So I'm wondering if you are confusing the shower with the bachelorette party.) I'd buy something off the record of employment and have sent home to be host there for the bride to open when you go to the shower. Good luck!
