So I just got my invitation to my shower, which is being hosted by my three aunts. Beautiful invitation, but one thing I am concerned about/worried by: they labeled it a "crystal and china shower."
First, is this a common thing? Second, my first thought is that it is an indication of the formality of the event, as is it being held at a prestigious country club. My second (and more alarming) thought that it indicates what you are supposed to bring as a gift. This seems "gift grabby" to me and I am really worried that others will see it that way too.
I am so grateful for all of their efforts and the fact that they want to throw this shower for me. I am just worried that it will leave the wrong impression.
