Choosing to avoid the gift opening portion of the bridal shower has become increasingly popular nowadays. While it is nice to acknowledge each persons’ gift to you so they can witness your reaction, you don’t have to. Not many people even want to sit through two hours of you tearing at boxes and gift bags. Your grandma or mom might give you a hard time about it, but if it’s not your thing, all you have to do is include “Be a dear and wrap in clear!” on your shower invitations. This way all your gifts can be displayed in a dedicated area for people to look at!
