My fiance and I are hosting a post-wedding brunch for our immediate and extended families. We are not nuts about opening gifts in front of people. I don't like the idea of people sitting around watching us open our blender and place settings. My mom and FMIL say it is expected. There is really no other time to open in front of gift givers, as most are catching plans within an hour of the brunch ending. Is it traditional to open gifts at this sort of event? Is it "expected?"
