Can you have a shower without a gathering?
I recently received an e-mail from a good friend saying that since her daughter's family and friends are all out of town, her bridesmaids decided to shower her with gifts by mail. All gifts should arrive by a certain date and on that date, I'm guessing the bride will open them all at once.
Question--Is this something new? Not sure how I feel about it. I don't usually send a gift if I don't plan to attend the shower.
