Bridal Shower Gift Registry Etiquette

Bridal Shower Gift Etiquette!
If you are throwing a Bridal Shower then as the host you will want to make sure that you follow the correct Etiquette code and rules. Etiquette refers to the ceremonial code of polite society. Obviously things have changed in modern times but, just like weddings, there are still rules of etiquette for Showers.

Bridal Shower Gift Registry Etiquette! - Is it acceptable to ask for Specific Items?
It is not acceptable to ask for specific gifts from your guests, this could cause offence. If there are specific items that the bride-to-be requires then you should consider signing up for a Bridal gift registry. The Bridal registry works exactly the same way as the popular wedding gift registry. The bride-to be selects one or two Bridal stores and registers her list of items with them.  The bride-to-be should ensure there is a wide range of gifts to suit all budgets. Some guests might like to pool their money and buy a larger gift from the list, it is important to give them plenty of choice, include some lower price items so guests don't feel they have to spend a certain amount of money.

Bridal Shower Gift Registry Etiquette - Let Guests Know!
The question of sending guests details of the gift registries that the bride-to-be has signed up for can cause some controversy. Some guests may feel it rude while others take the view that knowing what the bride-to-be would like makes it easy for them to select a useful gift. Nowadays it is thought that guests should be sent the details for the gift registry with their invitations. They can then browse the list and choose specific items. Sending details of the Bridal gift registry with the invitations also saves time for the busy Bridal shower host as there will be fewer emails / phone calls for her to answer with gift related questions!

Bridal Shower Gift Registry Etiquette - How much to spend on Gifts!
There is no set amount that guests are expected to spend on Bridal shower gifts and it is important that every guest receives a thank you for their gift. Homemade Bridal shower gifts are a wonderful idea and add that personal touch. An embroidered quilt or blanket is a wonderful gift and keepsake for the bride-to-be and it is essential to remember that a gift does not have to be expensive to be valuable, it is the thought that counts!

Bridal Shower Gift Registry Etiquette - Virtual Gifts!
If the bride-to-be is travelling to attend a Bridal shower, perhaps held by friends in her home city, why not ask guests to send pictures of their gifts to the host. The actual gift will be mailed directly from the gift registry company to to the bride-to-be at home! The host can then make a scrapbook with guests names and pictures of the gifts purchased from the Bridal gift registry. This scrapbook can then be opened and read at the long distance Bridal shower! The last thing you want is a heavily pregnant bride-to-be trying to fly back home with suitcases full of gifts. This idea will still add the thrill of seeing what Bridal gifts have been given at the shower. When the bride-to-be returns home she will have the extra excitement when the courier arrives with all her gifts!
