Did You Know

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A bridal shower is a gift-giving party held for a bride-to-be in anticipation of her wedding. The custom originated in the 1890s and is today most common in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The history of the custom is rooted not necessarily for the provision of goods for the upcoming matrimonial home, but to provide goods and financial assistance to ensure the wedding may take place.

Men are typically not allowed at these functions. But recently more men have been attending.

Every bridal shower I’ve been privy to for a few years has included the guys – don’t leave them out – from what I’ve seen they are just as involved and it is a great way for both families and their friends to get to know each other.  Maybe call it a “Wedding Shower” to take the “female only” aspect out of it.

As showers are explicitly a gift-giving occasion, everyone who attends the shower is expected to bring a small gift.[8] People who decline the invitation for any reason are not expected to send a gift or otherwise participate in the party. The hosts are expected to hand over gifts, or favors

Hosts

Hosting the bridal shower falls to one or more close friends of the bride, often one or more of the bridesmaids. Mothers, sisters, and other close family members usually do not host bridal showers, as it may be seen as rude and greedy for the family to ask for gifts for their own members.[10][11] Instead of a bridal shower, family members and future in-laws who wish to celebrate the upcoming wedding host a bridal tea, bridesmaids’ luncheon, engagement announcement party, or other non-gift-oriented party.[12] Some organizations, such as social clubs or religious groups, host bridal showers for every member who is being married.
