Is This New Wedding Shower Idea Rude?
Things are changing when it comes to weddings, not even mentioning the COVID-19 pandemic that. I'm talking about some of the more traditional small details. You're seeing less people get married in a church, less couples give favors at their reception, more people doing stags AND bachelor parties, showers AND bachelorette trips.
How do you think you would feel if you got this in the mail inviting you to a bridal shower before the wedding?
"With all that we have, we've been truly blessed! A monetary donation is all that we request."
We received this in the mail the other day and my first thought was 'ehhhh, do you think this is a bit rude?'. They're asking all the women to come to the bridal shower, but instead of going to get them a 'gift' they want everyone to pay for their honeymoon.
Maybe the bridal shower is another one of those things that need to be erased from the wedding traditions. After all, didn't people throw bridal parties for soon to be brides so they could get things for their home and 'start their lives' together? We already give a card full of money at the reception, why do we have to have another party before the party to give ANOTHER card full of money?
