Q: I am a bridesmaid and have been invited to several of the bride’s showers. Do I give a gift at each shower?
A: The bride should tell you that she would love to have you be there but that under no circumstance are you to bring a gift to each. If she hasn’t done this, it is still fine to attend but not give a gift. No guest should be invited to more than one shower, other than bridesmaids, and when they are, they are not expected to take a gift to each. You also may decline the invitations if it is difficult for you to attend.
