I have just been invited to my husband’s 2nd cousins Bridal shower/kitchen tea. Now I haven’t been to one for a long time but the expectations are just over the top. It’s a Chanel themed party complete with hired marquee. The invite came complete with a quote from Coco Chanel saying “In case of any doubt over dress in your best cocktail dress” so hence that is how I’m expected to dress. Also accompanying the invite was the Myer Gift registry with exorbitant prices. I feel I have to spend at least $100. Am I just out of touch with reality or is this the norm when it comes to bridal showers/kitchen teas?
