It’s been a long time since we had a Your Turn column, where I let you take the reigns of giving the advice, so here you go:
-her theme park bachelorette party (which I will probably be canceling due to the rise in COVID)
-her bridal shower coming up in the next couple of months (which I may not be able to attend, depending on a few factors)
-her rehearsal dinner
… all before the end of the calendar year.
I am wondering for what events I should give her a gift, and, if I’m not able to attend, should I still give a gift?
Additionally, she has become a good friend in the fewer than three years we’ve known each other, and I do not want to hinder the growth of our relationship. That is why I am hesitating on canceling the trip to the theme park. She will lose out on the resort points that will be paying for the hotel. She gave me a chance to cancel a few weeks ago before she’d lose the points, but, at that point, the virus was not as bad as it is now. How do you recommend I approach my conversation with her about canceling? — First-time Bridesmaid
