I know this board isn't that active I am just hoping to get some insight.
I recently had my bridal shower. My mom invited 50 people, including 5 of my fiance's family that are LDS but live near by (NY, PA, DE)...
none came. Of the 50 people invited, 45 poeple gave gifts.
The only 5 people that didn't were fiance's family.
I only had 35 people attend so 10 other people that didn't sent gifts. I don't really care if they do or not. but my mom is super insulted. Is it not popular to send a gift to someones shower if you are LDS and don't attned. I thought it was just common courtesy.
Also, I have sent out my invites. My reply date isnt until July. However. I have gotten almost all the replies from my family and none of fiances family that lives in utah. My mom siad maybe they don't use reply cards?! or know that they have to send them back if they aren't attending?
Because we were invited to 3 lds weddings and they never had reply cards.
