I am having a destination wedding in Mexico. I live in FL, majority of family and friends live in Maryland including 2 of the 3 members in my bridal party. My bridal shower would be in Maryland. So I know typically you present the gifts at the Rehearsal Dinner or sometime between then and the actual ceremony. My thought since the wedding is destination and I will already be bringing a lot as will the bridal party I don't want them burdened with additional gifts so I was thinking of presenting them the gifts at my bridal shower which will be several months prior to the wedding based on me having to travel and everyone's availability (Projected June Bridal Shower, October Wedding). I wanted everyone's thoughts on this. Would it be perceived okay to present those gifts at the shower? Or should I still bring them with me to give them in Mexico?
Also typically does your MOH gift exceed the other BMs gifts? And I already purchased their dresses which were each about $300 so my thinking was under $50 for the gifts, do you think that is acceptable value to budget?
