    They sent me an invitation to their couple's shower which I couldn't attend, so I mailed them stuff off their registry.

    Now, their wedding is approaching. Am I still obligated to bring a gift (to their wedding)?

    Elaine: Hey, how are we gettin' to Scott Drake's party on Saturday night?

    Jerry: Oh, Drake's party, I forgot to buy a present.

    George: I gotta buy a present now?

    Elaine: Of course you do, it's an engagement party.

    George: It never ends, this present stuff! Engagement present! Then they get married, you gonna
    have to get them something for that! Then the baby, there's another present. Then the baby starts
    getting their presents. I don't even like Drake.

    Jerry: You don't like the Drake?

    George: Hate the Drake.

    Elaine: I *love* the Drake.

    Jerry: How could you not like the Drake?

    George: Who's the Drake?

    Elaine: "Who's the Drake"?

    Jerry: The Drake is good!

    what the heck is a couples shower? sounds like an excuse to get extra gifts.

    I'm no expert on the situation but I think if going to a shower and getting gifts was intended to get you off the hook for a wedding gift, what's the point of having a shower in the first place?

    I texted my S/O, and she says yes, you're supposed to buy a gift for both.

    Nope. Your gift from the shower counts as the wedding gift, as told by my wife when we got married.

    I wonder who will see it as the bigger insult, the husband or the wife

    Of course she says that, she works for the other side. And her job is to brainwash you.

    You're not obligated to get them anything for either.

    It's the first time I was invited to one; had to Google it to understand what it was. I sent an individual gift to both the bride and groom.

    My belief was that my gifts for the couple's shower would cover me for the wedding. But now, part of me is bothered to show up to the wedding empty handed. I'm a bit conflicted because many of my friends and what I read also disagree with each other.

    Update: All the girls I've asked all say that I have to bring something, so I guess I have to agree with your wife. Thanks DHR.

    Geez, woman are greedy! haha

    You wouldn't get them anything? Really?
