Is cash a good gift for bridal shower?
I am a bridesmaid along with my friend for our friend's wedding soon. So there will be only 2 bridesmaid. The bride to be does not want a bridal shower and she will does not have a registry. Therefore the other bridesmaid and I decided to do a mini bridal shower with the 3 of us by going to an upscale restaurant and having high afternoon tea. There we will eat and give her gifts. The other bridesmaid said she will give the bride $500 cash. She will not give anything on the wedding day though. I ordered a personalized frame with the groom and brides names and their wedding date and a wedding hanger that says "Mrs. ---"
I also plan on getting her lingerie from VS to make it more fun. Then we will go out for facials and massages as a bachelorette thing.
I feel like my gift is so small compared to my friend who plan on giving her cash. Are my gifts tacky? Is cash a better option? I planned on giving her money on her wedding day.
