Would it be okay to use the engagement party or shower gifts before our wedding?
Some are very superstitious about these things – they say it’s bad luck to use or even open the presents before the big day. So, we would say it really depends on how much you believe in superstition.
Nowadays, however, it is perfectly acceptable to use the gifts you have received during your engagement party or bridal shower. During these celebrations, you may have already opened the gifts, so there is no reason not to use them as you like.
Also, if you have a wedding registry on Thankyou and you have online contribution items on your list, it is most likely that your guests have already contributed toward your gifts before your wedding day. You can access and redeem the cash anytime (even before your wedding) and use them to purchase the gifts or spend in any way you like.
