Hi there, if there was an etiquette section I'd put this there but since I'm considering for frugal reasons maybe you all can help!
Three years ago I got married. I received a beautiful nightgown (white and bridal)- truly gorgeous and high quality but it just didn't fit me right and I never got around to exchanging it so it has hung in my closet for 3 years. Tomorrow I'm going to a good friend' bridal shower. I'm embarrassed to say that I have not planned or shopped for her yet so I’m considering gifting her this nightgown. Here’s what I’m considering:
Pros: This friend was not at my shower, the re-gift is nicer and fancier than what I would go out and buy this evening, I’d save $$$
Cons: Some of the guests at her shower will be the same as at mine (will they remember the nightgown I got 3 years ago? I wouldn’t but you never know…), if it didn’t work for her and she returned it would they tell her it was bought years ago?
What would you do? TIA!
