What is the etiquette regarding wedding gifts and shower gifts and party gifts?

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

brakozzynboj asked:

I am in my mid 20s and lots of my friends are getting married, but one thing that is really bothering me is that all of them are expecting gifts, expensive gifts, not just at their wedding showers, but at their engagement parties, their bachelor/bachelorette parties and then also at their actual weddings. When I was growing up my parents taught me that a gift at the shower or at the wedding itself if you weren’t invited to the shower was good etiquette, but my boyfriend get so embarrassed when everyone else brings gifts to every occasion and I insist that we are fine. Are we wrong for not bringing $50+ gifts to every event or are our friends wrong for expecting gifts at every event surrounding the wedding?
To add to the earlier details, are showers and weddings 2 separate events requiring 2 different gifts off of the couple’s registry? Typically everyone brings a registry gift to the showers, and then another to the wedding. At the bachelorette showers invitations go out with requests for lingere and “gifts meant to be enjoyed on the honeymoon” and for the bachelor parties bottles of liquor or adult themed gifts… It adds up when you consider we all for the most part just finished school and my boyfriend and I are both still in school (PhD studies) without full time employment.
One last thing, I don’t even live in the country (I go to a university abroad), but I still get invites and send gifts, as if the situation wasn’t complicated enough. Answers for my specific situation and in general for people who do attend all of the events are appreciated.
