Ok, so my shower is next weekend (eeek!) and I realize now that I have only been to a few showers in my life. Showers around here are typically done like this-- the bride to be or mother to be opens presents, and someone (usually the MOH or BFF or someone) sits close by and writes down each gift and the name of the giver in a notebook for thank-you cards later. I have seen this at literally every single shower, so I'm guessing it is ok to do - yes? There is nothing "against etiquette" about that, right?
Thank you cards - hopefully there won't be any of the "write your address on an envelope" nonsense, but if there is... what do I do? Ignore it? I can't make a scene and throw all of the cards/envelopes away, so what do you ladies suggest IF this ends up happening?
How early should I arrive? Right on time? A little early? I'm one of those "5-minutes-late-to-everything" kind of people, but obviously I will be on my best behavior for this. I don't want to show up super early if that is awkward.
Am I bad at being a girl?? Sometimes it feels like I am.
In other news, we are going to get our marriage license today!!
