A: Traditionally a bridal shower is for the brides nearest and dearest female family members or friends all of whom have been invited to the wedding. Assuming you fall into one of those categories a gift is expected which will be opened during a bridal shower gift opening ceremony of sorts during the party. Some brides-to-be will have a registry (gift list) for their bridal party or they may be having a themed bridal party in which case any gifts will be dictated by the theme.

The gift doesn’t have to be something for the couple after they’re married. It can be something just for the ‘bride’ such as exotic undies for the honeymoon or a spa day and so on.
