“Love is in the air” as they say. June is one of the most popular times of year for weddings, showers, engagements, and all of those happy parties and get-togethers centered around picking out the perfect bridal bouquet and shopping for dresses.
Whether you’re one of those lucky in love or are smack dab in the middle of the blossoming romances among family members and friends, we bet you’re trying to figure out how to navigate the treacherous etiquette waters of shower season.
While each couple has their own expectations regarding gifts to bring, food can be a whole other story. Providing enough food to feed everyone at a wedding shower or bridal shower can be a huge burden which is why some couples decide to host potluck events to have plenty of food to go around.
