Wedding gift etiquette questions..

by -

One of my closest friends is getting married in a few months. My daughter and I are in her wedding party, and she is practically paying for everything for us. She's even inviting DH and DS to the rehearsal dinner at a fancy place.
I am new to this wedding thing (DH and I simply went to the court house.) Is the proper time/place to give a wedding present at the bridal shower? Or is that sort of like a fun bride-only gift? I read that it's not okay to bring gifts to the wedding - is this true?
Since I'm a bridesmaid, is there anything special I can do/give to her? I've offered to help out with anything but she seems to have everything covered.

Wedding Gift Etiquette--No gifts

by sarapan

My close friend is getting married this weekend and she and her fiancee are an older couple. This is her
first marriage. The wedding invitation said No Gifts Please. I am assuming that this means just that--No gifts? My husband asked me about it this morning and I thought I would ask here. I am getting a very nice card, but I am assuming No gifts meansNo gifts. Is that true? She was in my wedding party.

Wedding gift--etiquette?

by pugmama

I have a friend who got married over one year ago at the county court house. They did not have a party or anything after the marriage ceremony, and were not interested in celebrating with us friends.
So now, they decide to have a big wedding later this summer. They sent out invitation with the places they are registered. I already couldn't believe they were asking for gifts. Now--I get another invite in the mail that flat out says, "bring a gift" to the bridal shower. I am supposed to bring a gift that belongs in a certain room.
I think this is very rude, to ask for 2 gifts

If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
