Asking guests not to wrap gifts for a shower
My mother and I attended a bridal shower this weekend for a cousin where the invite asked guests not to wrap presents. They used a poem that said something about putting ribbon on the gifts but not wrapping them because the bride wanted to mingle. I thought this was kind of rude (maybe because I love wrapping?) but my mom thought it was the perfect thing. She wants to do this for my shower now and doesn't think anything is wrong with the idea at all. I just wanted other people's opinions on this; am I overreacting? I don't want to make a big deal asking her not to do this if the general consensus is it's ok.
