It wasn't until I was engaged myself that I learned all of the etiquette that goes along with weddings. Technically, you should bring a gift to the engagement party, a bridal shower, and the wedding. That is a lot of gifts! Times have changed along with the economy and what is expected has too. Most brides and grooms only expect gifts at showers, and receive gifts at the actual wedding from out of town guests.
I still like to bring a little something to an engagement party. One gift that I loved at my own engagement party was a beautiful clock and a card that said "The countdown has begun!" It was so clever, and we have that clock hung in our kitchen. I'm not that clever! (But may totally steal that idea one day!)
Leave me a comment: So how about you? What is your go-to engagement gift?
