I have been invited, and accepted invitation, to a Bridal Shower. I have hung with said Bride 2 Be twice. She seems intelligent and sassy and fun. Her Future Hubby is a school friend of my betrothed. He seems equally funny and interesting and not at all an asshole. As a couple, they are all the things I would want in a new set of friends if I had time to incorporate new peeps into my life. I don't even get to see the peeps I already have!
But, back to Bridal Shower woes 2008. Since I don't really know her, I can't secure the obligatory crotchless panties and nipple pasties. I am stuck. I don't want to cop out and get a wedding gift off the registry. Likewise, I don't want to spend $50 on her shower gift if we still have to get a wedding present. So...what gift do you buy a Bride if you don't know if she is more black lace or pink ruffles? Tradition be dammed...I need some ideas.
